Pelvic Floor Galore! Resources for Creating Pelvic Floor Health Through Yoga

pelvic.awarenessWell, I am finally dedicating an entire post to all these pelvic floor health Physio Yoga resources I’ve been creating and accumulating over the years: writing, filming, interviewing, sharing!

I will keep this post updated and current, and add any resources I find valuable to share. This information is targeted towards people like you who are interested in learning more about and optimizing pelvic floor health through yoga: the general public, the yoga teacher, yoga therapist, health care professional, or anyone simply looking for more quality information and resources on creating pelvic floor health through Physio + Yoga.

Medical Therapeutic Yoga Alumni Retreat in Costa Rica: Transforming Healthcare Through Self Care

BoomerangCostaRica.2Deciding whether or not to attend the first annual Medical Therapeutic Yoga Alumni Retreat in Costa Rica wasn’t an immediate easy decision. I have bills to pay.

The intention was to give ourselves a gentle and refreshing reminder and experience of the one thing we teach and preach to our own patients on a daily basis: the importance of practicing self-care — and actually practice it ourselves. A chance to reboot. A chance to spend time in solitude to self-reflect and self-inquire and a chance to connect and share some of our ideas with each other and teach in a very informal, low pressure, and ‘no expectation’ environment. The beauty of Costa Rica was incredible. I actually don’t really want to write about it; because I know my writing will not capture the beauty and simply will not do the country of Costa Rica and the Boca Sombrero paradise justice. But I promised myself and some others that I would. So, I’ll try.
Here are my ‘nature appreciation’ highlights: Read more
