$75.00 Floor to the Core: Yoga for Incontinence and Stability
Your pelvic floor is the beginning of any core work and its function
affects your entire body. Whether your pelvic floor carries too much
tension and does not have enough tension to stabilize the body, this
three-part workshop is for you.
Many of us think (or have even
been told by our doctors) that this is just normal after having children
or is inevitable as part of aging. Although not all issues can be cured
by Pelvic Floor YogaTM, most can be improved and some completely resolved with a regular yoga practice focused on core and pelvic floor health.
Pelvic Floor YogaTM has
been scientifically proven to help with incontinence and pelvic pain
and more studies are currently under way. This workshop will empower you
with the tools you need to address incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse,
pelvic pain and more. Come find out why there is so much more you can
do than Kegels and why they might even be making matters worse.
Leslie Howard is an Oakland-based yoga teacher, specializing in all
things pelvic. She leads workshops and trainings worldwide and has
written a book about caring for the female pelvis, Pelvic Liberation .
She is a regular presenter for the Yoga Journal conferences and a
regular contributor to Yoga Journal magazine. Her own struggles with
healing her hips and pelvis led her to intense study of the anatomy,
physiology, cultural messaging, history and energetics of this rich
place. Her teaching is informed by over 3500 hours of yoga study with
senior Iyengar yoga teachers. She considers Ramanand Patel her most
important influence and mentor. She has designed two very successful
studies for UCSF on how to use yoga to alleviate incontinence
and pelvic pain. To learn more about Leslie or for some online
