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 intended for 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.

The first resource is a great place to start: an article I wrote in the Winter 2016 Issue of the International Association of Yoga Therapists “Yoga Therapy Today” publication. It’s a concise summary of roles of the pelvic floor, factors influencing pelvic floor function, and how yoga fits in:

Optimizing Pelvic Floor Health: Where Does Yoga Fit In?

The second resource is a series of yoga videos I created to help improve pelvic floor awareness, relaxation, engagement in coordination with movement and breathing with pelvic diaphragmatic rhythm.

Pelvic health physical therapists from across the world are recommending these videos to their patients as a complement to their therapy treatments.

Yoga therapists and teachers are using them to guide their therapeutic yoga sessions or yoga classes.

The general public are using them to improve awareness of and connection to their pelvic floors and help optimize pelvic floor health.

The 4 minute trailer is a nice summary of what you can expect:

2) PhysioYoga and The Pelvic Floor Resource Package 

This online library includes all of the video and audio practices from the practical component of my full course on Embodia as described in #1 above, PhysioYoga and the Pelvic Floor.

This package includes a total of 6 hours of practices for you to choose from and then share with your patients – so you can create an individualized online home program tailored to each person’s needs.

And the great news is, this is completely free for your patients to access!

This library includes key components of integrating yoga into pelvic rehab and wellness in order to enhance a whole-person centered approach.

Each practice ranges any where from 2 minutes to 20 minutes in length.

The practices include:

  • overall body, mind, breath and pelvic floor awareness
  • mindful movement
  • meditations including compassion and breathing practices
  • practices to calm and regulate the nervous systems
  • practices to help reduce tension in the body and pelvic floor
  • and to help reduce pain
  • practices help facilitate engagement and excursion of the pelvic floor in timing with breath and movement.

To gain a deeper understanding of the theory and indications for using these practices in pelvic rehab and for optimizing patient outcomes, I do recommend my full course on Embodia.

But if you just want the practical component of the course to pick and choose practices for your patients, then this resource package is perfect for you!
