UNRAVELLING THE MYTHS OF THE PELVIC FLOOR

Ever thought of this?
– Should I engage the pelvic floor on an inhalation or exhalation? Why?
– Is it true that weak glutes can effect pelvic floor dysfunction?
– How do I teach pelvic floor exercises in class in a way that doesn´t feel embarrassing?
– Is a strong mula bandha equal to a Strong pelvic floor? (Spoiler alert: no)

This workshop aims to unravel some of the myths surrounding pelvic floor health as it relates to the yoga world especially.

Pelvic floor dysfunction will effect 80% of the population within their lifetime (yes that many!) And it’s hardly spoken about, let alone understood.

Some common symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction are
– Constipation
– Period pains
– Leaking wee when coughing or laughing

We will explore how to work with different problems and how they can affect the rest of the body and a person’s practice.

Especially useful to yoga teachers and exercise therapists but open to everyone – this is knowledge everyone should have!

The workshop will be down to earth and fun!

18 – 19 Mandala drawing workshop
With Melanie Cooper
300 kr (Early bird 200 kr until 19 April)

A Yantra is a Mandala with a geometrical design that can help us understand reality. In this workshop you will learn to draw your own Mandala using the principles of sacred geometry. We will draw, colour in, and meditate on the Mandalas. You will learn in an experiential way how the Mandalas relate to yoga philosophy as well as science and maths. We will look at different ideas of zero, infinity, fractals, the seed of life, six pointed stars and hexagons.
