Requirements

Healthy pelvic floor muscles are required to support our inner organs by being strong and contractile, as well as being able to fully open, release and relax. This course puts the emphasis on the How. You will learn how to deeply activate your pelvic floor muscles correctly and precisely in order to build real strength (one that has range), and how to let go of patters that hold tension and pain.

We will focus on alignment, strength, flexibility, deep stabilization and body awareness, to create balance and support from within. We will also emphasize the relationship between the breath and pelvic function which is crucial in the process of healing pelvic floor disorders, and you will learn to feel the pelvic floor and develop awareness to your own experience, so that you may accentuate and let go in the way that is accurate to your needs.

The course consists of a few short lectures to introduce the topic – anatomy, an explanation of the core system and the approach we take. Please don’t skip the introduction!

You will then learn the concept of Isuf; gathering and lifting the pelvic floor muscles in coordination with the breath, and will have the option of coming back to six short exercises that will teach you the nuances of pelvic floor engagement and release.

In the third section you will have three short practice flows that you can repeat as many times as you would like. You could alternate the days you practice each, or you could mix them together and do them one after the other. In these videos you will integrate the new learned concepts with the function of the supporting muscles. The last practice in this course is a 40 minute full-body flow where you can practice your new tools and awareness as many times as you wish. It is a gentle yet strong practice designed to make you feel grounded and nourished.
