Enhancing Pelvic Floor Health Through an Embodied Practice

Shelly Prosko, PT, C-IAYT

Your pelvic floor plays an important role in your bladder, bowel, reproduction and sexual health, and also contributes to and is involved in hip health, breathing, core strategies, balance ability, vocalization and more.

Join Shelly Prosko, physiotherapist and yoga therapist, for this inspiring and educational pelvic floor health presentation and practice session to help enhance awareness of and connection to your pelvic floor. A brief introductory review of pelvic floor anatomy will be included along with an outline of the biopsychosocial factors that influence pelvic floor function.

Guided embodied practices will be provided to help enhance pelvic floor awareness, relaxation and engagement and optimize the pelvic floor’s natural movement in timing with breath rhythm and mindful movement practices. The practices stem from Pelvic Floor Health PhysioYoga and will integrate yoga principles to support overall pelvic health and wellness.
