Experience the immense benefits of releasing your pelvic floor in the comfort of your own home.
In this 1-hour yin yoga class, I will guide you through a variety of warm up postures to release the structures surrounding the pelvic floor (ie the psoas, the abdominals, the glutes, the piriformis, the IT band, the TFL).. and then just 15 minutes or so of "direct" pelvic floor work where we sit on therapy balls. I've found this to be the most effective and intelligent way of working with the pelvic floor. It's gentle and wise - not forceful or too intense.
After your purchase, you'll immediately receive an email with a link to view the recording.
The recording never expires, and you can watch the class over and over again as many times as you'd like. You have it for life.
Many of you have told me about your struggles with pelvic floor pain over the years and I feel really excited to share this class with you. Some of you may not know why it matters to release the pelvic floor... in which case I'll just take a moment to list some of the benefits:
1. It stimulates the muladhara chakra, which is our energetic "root seat" and contributes to feelings of groundedness, contentment and equanimity.
2. It helps with tight hips. If you struggle with sitting cross-legged or have a nagging hip pain that won't go away, it's very likely that it has something to do with your pelvic floor muscles.
3. It can heal sexual and birth-related trauma, abuse, or insecurity. We'll go very very slowly and you can always take breaks any time. This is a tender, intimate area - but rather than ignore it or shy away - I've found it incredibly empowering and healing to work with the pelvic floor... just slowly and with lots of compassion for ourselves.
4. If you practice squatting, this class can dramatically improve your range of motion. Tightness in the pelvic floor limits how low you can drop your hips toward the ground when your knees are bent. Releasing your pelvic floor also really helps with knee pain during squatting! It's so cool.
For this class you'll need a coregeous ball, 2 yoga therapy ball PLUS's, 1 original yoga therapy ball, a bolster, and a blanket.
