During this 4 week class series, we’ll bring the light of awareness to the hips and inner pelvis to give this area the loving care it needs, through active practice, restorative poses, and breath work. Invite healing release and healthy circulation to the inner pelvis while developing stability, strength, and support for this special area. Learn how the pelvic floor contributes to and benefits from standing poses, backbends, twists, inversions, and more! Discover ways to optimize pelvic health: how to avoid or diminish prolapse and incontinence, how to relieve pain caused by hypertonicity (tension and gripping patterns) in the pelvic floor, how to stand, sit, and move in ways that support pelvic health, energetic release, and deep relaxation.
For all genders and levels. Recommended for folks who have taken Avery’s workshop, Yoga for Your Pelvic Floor and want to learn more, AND yoga teachers, teacher trainees, health care providers, and anyone with a pelvic floor! Classes counts towards Yoga Alliance CEUs.
