Saturday and Sunday June 9 & 10, 2018 1:00p-4:00p

Develop an understanding of pelvic anatomy through lecture, asana and pranayama. If you experience any of the following conditions, or are just curious about this part of your body, this workshop is for you:

*pelvic pain
*prolapsed organs
*perimenopause or menopause
*hysterectomy
*discomfort during sex
*frequent urination/strong urination urge/leaking while laughing or sneezing

The workshop for people who identify as women will begin with an anatomy lecture and discussion about abdominal health and how to utilize the pelvic floor. We will locate, stretch and strengthen the muscle groups of the pelvic floor followed by subtle movements to awaken your understanding of this often ignored area. A series of specific exercises and asanas will follow.

No yoga experience is necessary. A typical workshop will include students looking to heal their own pain, as well as yoga teachers, midwives, doulas, PT’s, and doctors.
Yoga Alliance CEU’s available.
