Full Description

The pelvic floor supports us in posture and function. It is the base of our core strength and affects us on the emotional, mental and physical levels. Strengthening this area helps to control bladder/bowel function and may also alleviate some cases of back pain.

Did you know that it is not normal to wear pads for wetness as you age? 1 in 4 Kiwis suffer from this and other pelvic floor weaknesses. This short, practical workshop will teach you how to engage the pelvic floor and how you can use this in everyday life. Weak function can be regained through simple techniques. Using diagrams, medical models, visualization and yoga techniques participants are better able to understand the unique function of the bony pelvis and the surrounding soft tissue structures. Learn techniques for life. Understanding the pelvic structures will also greatly assist any woman at any stage in life.

There is no nudity in this training. Please wear yoga style clothing and bring a mat, pillow and blanket.

TESTIMONIAL: The pelvic floor class offered by Marina Locke is both informative and experiential. Marina uses her knowledge as a birth expert to bring clarity to the anatomy of the pelvis and uses experiential exercises to bring awareness to one's body. The class is great for anyone seeking to gain a better understanding of their body. Verlyne N. ,
