Workshop: Yoga for the Pelvic Floor

$69 per classNo purchase required to enroll

Raise your hand if you pee a little when you jump, sneeze, or laugh. If you have pain during sex. If you have prolapse from your birthing experience. This is for you! This is for US! Kegels are the answer for some, but can actually worsen issues for many, and it's time to be educated and empowered to restore our own bodies.

This mini-workshop will attempt to shed light on the function/dysfunction and maintenance of this most powerful and intimate of our bodily parts.

FIT4MOM is sponsoring this event, all payments will go to the instructor and venue.

Through the instruction and practice of yoga, overly tight pelvic floor muscles can be relaxed and too loose muscles can be strengthened, bringing understanding and relief to those experiencing discomfort in the pelvic region. Physical postures and exercises will make up a part of this workshop and can be done with or without a background in yoga.

About the instructor:

Susan McCormick leads the UCSF Yoga for the Pelvic Floor course, which has seen incredible improvements in women's pelvic floor rehabilitation. She is a certified Iyengar yoga teacher, draws upon her life experience, her daily asana and pranayama practice, and ongoing studies with Manouso Manos and other senior teachers to guide her teaching. She travelled to India to study with the Iyengar family and completed a rigorous three-year teacher training program taught by Gloria Goldberg. Currently, she assists in a class taught by Brian Hogencamp and is midway through a one-year Iyengar Therapeutics training with Manouso.

Additionally, she has received training and certification to teach pelvic floor work from Leslie Howard, author of Pelvic Liberation.

Susan genuinely cares about her students and encourages their discovery of the life-enhancing properties of yoga: increased strength and flexibility of body and mind, improved health of all systems of the body, growth of compassion for oneself and others, and development of a balanced approach to life’s daily challenges.
