Copy of Copy of Yoga for Pelvic Health

     

    This workshop is available as one to three sessions for individuals or groups. Please contact me to learn more!

    Let's talk about what's going on 'down there'! Common pelvic health concerns include pain, urinary urgency/frequency/leakage, constipation, and prolapse. Contrary to popular belief, these issues are not an inevitable result of one's sex, pregnancy, childbirth, or aging, and they are treatable. This workshop will cover valuable information and yoga practices to promote pelvic health at all ages. Participants will be empowered to understand their pelvic floor anatomy, common issues that can arise, prevention, and how pelvic physiotherapy can help. Learn simple movement, breathing and awareness techniques to relax, stretch, strengthen and improve coordination in pelvic muscles. No yoga experience is required. Participants will receive an illustrated outline of the practice. 

    Come discover what your mother couldn't tell you because she didn't know either!

    Moving through Grief with Yoga is currently offered as personalized private sessions, in person or online in Ontario. 

    The yoga practice has helped me to find a quiet space to honor my grief, in addition to helping me to dig deeper to look at grief from my past hat has not been resolved. It has helped me to find the parts of my body that hold this grief and to be gentle and compassionate with myself through this lifelong process."
