Well, 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 for both men and women 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:
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:
