About one in four men and women in the US struggle with urinary incontinence. It is not just a medical problem; it can affect us emotionally and socially, as it often makes us afraid to engage in activities that would make us veer too far away from a bathroom.
The pelvic floor muscles play an important role as part of the body’s core system, contributing to core stabilization during movement. Yoga offers numerous techniques to strengthen and balance the pelvic floor. Proper strengthening and stabilizing of the pelvic floor help to create the correct foundation for each movement in the body. This is the true meaning of “core work.” In this course, study with yoga therapist and pelvic floor expert Leslie Howard as she shares the evidence-based yoga practices for pelvic floor health used in studies on the benefits of yoga for pelvic floor health with a specific focus on incontinence. In a study designed by Leslie for University of California, San Francisco, women who participated in the yoga program in the study experienced an overall 70 percent improvement – or reduction – in the frequency of their urine leakage compared to the baseline!
Whether you experience this condition or are just plain curious about how to create greater tone and balance of the pelvic floor, this course contains a wealth of helpful and practical information.
Yoga-based practices for the pelvic floor can help with various health issues, including pelvic pain; lower back, hip, or groin problems; discomfort during sex or while using tampons; leakage when laughing or sneezing; having to go the bathroom too often, or prolapsed pelvic organs.
