Balance is a commonly overlooked component of health and wellness.

Falls are the #1 cause of injuries in older adults in Canada and are considered a public health concern worldwide. There are many factors that contribute to our balance capacity, and we don’t have to wait until our elder years when balance is already compromised to address them.

There are a variety of things we can do to address balance at any stage of our lives.

We know the pelvic floor plays key roles in bowel, bladder, sexual and reproduction function. It also plays an important role in how we move, sustain our balance and perform core strategies. However, how the pelvic floor behaves for optimal balance and efficient movement is nuanced and deserves discussion.

Here’s the 1 hour WEBINAR REPLAY where I highlight the components of the intervention I co-developed for a recent research project surrounding the effects of various yoga principles, practices, specific cueing and instructions used on known risk factors for falls and fall-related injuries such as:



balance confidence,

upper and lower body strength and mobility,

landing capacity including reaction time, load absorption and controlled descent.


In this 1 hour webinar, you will be able to:

  1. Describe the qualities and characteristics of a healthy functioning pelvic floor.
  2. List the components of the Balance Flow Yoga intervention that was used in research demonstrating effects of yoga on fall risk factors such as incontinence, balance, mobility and strength.
  3. Outline and understand the key concepts emphasized during cueing and instruction of the practices in Balance Flow Yoga, including the types of cues surrounding the pelvic floor.
  4. Access the list of resources and links to learn more and engage in practices from Balance Flow Yoga.
