This specialist 2hr workshop is for yoga teachers, pilates instructors and fitness coaches who would like to have more knowledge and experience in creating female pelvic friendly class content which allows a woman to connect and create awareness to this very powerful but often bypassed part of the body.
The female pelvis is the seat of feminine power, creation and deep cyclical wisdom. It has a huge influence on a woman’s physical, emotional and sexual wellbeing, and takes centre stage in her experience of life - from first sexual explorations, through puberty, pregnancy & childbirth, to perimenopause and menopause.
Yet so often this part of the body is shrouded in mystery, shame, disfunction and disconnection and this comes at a great loss. Disconection to the pelvis not only influence physical pelvic conditions but can also play out through the rest of the body, affecting posture and movement, and also has repercusions with a woman’s relationship to her sexuality, sensuality and sense of self.
So many women experience pelvic issues in silence - incontinence, prolapse, pelvic pain, painful sex, lack of libido, lack of sensation, painful periods, vaginal atrophy, pcos and endometriosis to name a few.
It doesn’t have to be like this and yoga is a wonderful place to explore and promote connection and wellbeing.
Through trauma-informed and sensitive practices a woman can cultivate pelvic awareness, connection and health, bringing balance and wellbeing to this powerful part of herself.
In this workshop you will
- Find out why the pelvis is paramount to a woman’s mind and body wellbeing.
- What can happen when there is pelvic disconnect and how as movement facilitators you can make a difference.
- How a woman’s life stages can have an impact on her pelvic wellbeing.
- Explore practises to create connection, intimacy and wellbeing using a mix of movement, breathwork and visualisation.
There will be time for experiential learning, sharing and for questions to be addressed.
This session will be recorded for future reference to those attending the workshop
