Where Did My Pelvic Floor and Deep Core Go?
Some areas of health seem easy to talk about, others like our pelvic floor muscles may be viewed as a topic unmentionable. Do you feel like you don’t have core muscles anymore. Or maybe you workout often but still have pain or can’t do exercises you should be strong enough to do. Are there “consequences” unmentionable when you laugh, jump, sneeze, lift your legs in the air, etc? The pelvic floor and deep core muscles are very important to health, and many people experience problems related to this area. So where is the pelvic floor? What do pelvic floor muscles do? How do you protect and train them? Where are the deep core muscles? These questions and more will be explored this class. This class is appropriate for any fitness level. From a beginner to an athlete. All ages. (Note to mothers: if you have daughters in sports, gymnastics, dance, etc. they will benefit too.) Please bring a yoga mat if you have one.
