What is your relationship with your pelvic floor? How does this special area reflect, and affect, what's happening in the rest of the body, the mind, the emotions? “ Pelvic floor” refers to the dynamic layers of muscle which span the inner pelvis. In this afternoon workshop we will explore pelvic anatomy, posture, pelvic breath, and yoga poses and self care techniques to increase health, wellness, and healing.

When our pelvic floor area isn’t able to be both strong and relaxed, mild to serious health issues such as pelvic pain, digestive trouble, infertility, urge incontinence, stress incontinence, and/ or prolapse can develop. Pop culture would have us believe that most women are too loose, (when that’s often not true!) and that it’s inappropriate for men to want to learn about their pelvic floor. Many people have too much gripping, and because of that tightness, the pelvic muscles are weak. Or the muscles are lax and need tone… or, a combination of both! When trying to do Kegels people end up constricting the urethra, sometimes doing more harm than good. Mula Bandha is a hot topic, but often misunderstood. Let's bring the light of awareness to the inner pelvis, and give this area the loving care it needs.

This hands-on workshop will help you learn to sense the 3 layers of muscle that make up your unique pelvic floor. Then, by exploring specific actions and structural alignment through yoga poses and breath work, you will learn what practices will best support you. Discover ways to optimize pelvic health, including good circulation, movement, relaxation, and stability.

For all genders and levels. Recommended for yoga teachers, teacher trainees, health care providers, and anyone with a pelvic floor! Workshop counts towards Yoga Alliance CEUS.

Avery Janeczek Kalapa, RYT500, holds special certification in Yoga for the Pelvic Floor with Leslie Howard, as well as Prenatal Yoga. She is a committed, versatile teacher, who approaches this in-depth work with reverence, precision, and joy.
