Know your Pelvic Floor Workshop

CHANGE THE WAY YOU FEEL!

Most women will experience some form of pelvic floor dysfunction in their lifetime. Some through childbirth or injury, others through the process of ageing.

With the integration of pelvic floor activation and awareness into our exercise, yoga, daily activities and sports, we can restore, build and maintain proper pelvic floor function, for life.

Did you know that back and hip pain can also be a root cause of pelvic floor dysfunction?

This workshop will provide you with the knowledge and skills to both strengthen and stabilise the muscles of your pelvis, pelvic floor and the muscles that support your posture. You will learn how to properly activate the muscles of the glutes and hips, the back and abdominals.

You will also learn the important role the feet play in pelvic floor health.

The intention of the workshop is to equip you with the knowledge to build your own practice, or to incorporate some new learnings into your current exercise routine and yoga practice.

The workshop will begin with a warm-up and theory, followed by an accessible but targeted strength class. The session finishes with time for Q+A and relaxation.

A course handout is included for home exercise. Class numbers are limited so book early.

Significant alteration to muscle composition, ligamentous laxity, joint stability, blood volume, visceral tone and a host of other important body processes means safe and effective coaching of a post-partum client requires skill and a sound knowledge base.  This course aims to provide a basic understanding of key areas relevant to the general personal trainer/fitness professional .
