Do you pee a little when you run, laugh or sneeze? Wondering what prolapse or diastasis recti is and if you have it? Experiencing pelvic or low back pain? There’s a good chance that your pelvic floor (the area of muscle between your tailbone at the back and pubic bone at the front) and deep core muscles aren’t functioning properly.
Too often, these issues are thought of as the inevitable consequences of childbirth and aging. But guess what – there’s something you can do about it!
Join us for a 2 hour, interactive workshop where you’ll learn:
- If Kegels are right for you, and the proper way to do them
- How dysfunction in your core and pelvic floor can lead to disorders like incontinence, prolapse, low back pain, pelvic pain, and diastasis recti (ab separation)
- Simple lifestyle modifications and posture adjustments to improve core and pelvic floor health
- Stretches and exercises to rehabilitate and strengthen your core and pelvic floor muscles
You’ll leave this workshop with more body awareness, a better understanding of how to prevent and treat pelvic floor disorders, and a handout, complete with a workout routine that you can do at home. As research continues to evolve, I update this workshop so you have the latest information!
This workshop is ideal for any age or stage of life, but is especially recommended for pre and postnatal women (remember, if you have ever had a baby – even 30 years ago – you still have a “postnatal” body!)
“I liked that there was no embarrassment – everyone was in the room for the same reason. The presentation covered the ‘why’ and ‘what’ and then the demonstration covered the ‘how’.”
“It was very relaxed and informative. Rather than accepting that incontinence issues are just a result of child bearing or age, you gave information and encouragement that it can be corrected. You are obviously well informed and passionate about the subject.”
“Stephanie, you are a delight. Very down to earth, informative and to the point. You kept the workshop on topic, were able to answer questions, and find the answers if you didn’t know.”
“Something I didn’t realize I was doing so much was taking “preventative pees”. Retraining myself to only go when I need to has made a huge difference for me – I’m not getting up all throughout the night anymore. The workshop helped me make that connection so I could consciously shift my patterns.”
“The workshop was really well put together. The handouts will be helpful, and I loved the honesty! I will definitely be signing up for future workshops and classes on this topic.”
“I left feeling very encouraged and committed to knowing my body better, and the workshop gave me ways to take care of it even more! Thank you!”
“It was so nice to have a group of ladies come together for the same common goal, without feeling centered out!”
“I highly recommend this course to all women. Understanding the role that the pelvic floor muscles play is essential knowledge. This information should be included in school health programs.”
“Great workshop. Well taught – your description of each exercise was easy to follow . I learned a lot and will recommend this workshop to my friends.”
