I hope you enjoy these pelvic floor health yoga video practices I created for you. Your pelvic floor is an important part of your bladder, bowel, reproduction, and sexual health. I wanted to offer something that allowed me to share what I have learned over the years as a physiotherapist and yoga therapist, helping men and women optimize their pelvic floor health and function.
These practices address the roles our pelvic floor plays in breathing, posture, hip function, core strategy, and standing balance ability and are filmed in breathtaking nature settings with spectacular cinematography by Mike Bernard and soulful music uniquely created by Trance Blackman with special care and attention to the intentions of each practice.

Healthy pelvic floor muscles need to be capable of being engaged in functional and coordinated ways in timing with other muscle groups and, like other muscles, it is essential that the pelvic floor muscles also be flexible and capable of being released and relaxed, with the ability to move throughout the full excursion during the breath cycle.
These video practices address these concepts:
Part A: “Pelvic Floor Muscle Relaxation”: 30 minute practice of relaxing the pelvic floor muscles through pelvic floor awareness, visualization and breathing methods, during mindful movements and yoga postures.
Part B: “Pelvic Floor Muscle Engagement”: 40 minute practice that includes facilitating the engagement or activation of the pelvic floor muscles with various mindful movements and yoga postures integrated with the breath pattern.
I have also included a free bonus feature, the “Toilet Meditation”, where I guide you through the 6 stages of mindful toileting that I created to help improve awareness and pelvic floor muscle relaxation to help fully empty the bowel and bladder.
*This bonus feature is available for you to stream for free, if you purchase both Part A and Part B videos as the “Buy All” package.
These videos are intended to help create, enhance and sustain optimal pelvic floor health or serve as a complement to your current treatment, as indicated and supervised by your healthcare provider.
Please know that pelvic floor health is also influenced by our thoughts, emotions, what we eat, how we respond to and manage stress, and how we relate and connect to ourselves, others and the world around us.
I sincerely hope you enjoy these practices, appreciate the nature settings and music, and hope they make a difference in your life, in a valuable way.
