Yoga for Women’s Pelvic Floor Health
February 25, 2018, 2:00-4:00 PM

Like any other muscles, the PF can weaken from underuse or from the aging process. During menopause, women also experience a decrease in estrogen that can initiate thinning and weakening of the PF. It is also possible that too much tone and tightness due to stress or misalignment can lead to pain or other symptomsYoga creates support for pelvic floor health. Focus on alignment in everyday life, poses that stretch and strengthen our tissues holistically, and breathwork  that manages stress enhancing our pelvic floor health.

Included in each session:

  • Evidence-based content presentations, definitions, and discussion

  • We will also practice stress reduction, restorative yoga and breath work, all designed and targeted appropriately for healthy aging.
