FREE EDUCATIONAL EVENT
PLS YOGA, with special guest Elizabeth Kemper (MPT, WCS, PRPC, BCB-PMD), is pleased to invite you to the first of a series of education events on pelvic floor health for (peri-)menopausal and post-cycling women. On February 12th, please join us at Vista Yoga Studio for this free education and information session on pelvic health, yoga therapy, and the changing body. Topics covered will include:.
- a brief overview of optimal pelvic health during menopause and beyond
- modifications to traditional poses (and other daily activities), from a pelvic perspective, for pelvic dysfunction and disease, as well as recommendations toward a yoga practice to support our changing bodies
- basic yoga breathwork and postures to improve non-beneficial conditions, discomfort, and symptoms of dysfunction (including pain, incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, etc.),
- the basics of true core conditioning at any age, for healthy pelvic systems and structures
Suitable for women at any stage of the life changes associated with menopause, and for those who have passed beyond these changes but who continue to have questions about their new 'normal'. Recommended for women who are at the beginning of their pelvic health journey, and/or who may be living with pelvic dysfunction, disease or post-surgical conditions. This evening is also appropriate for health practitioners and fellow yoga teachers, who want to support patients and clients.
Spread the word, but space is limited; RSVP is required. For more information, to register for the event (or to receive information about future events, including additional sessions for (peri-)menopausal women, and more to come for the pregnant and post-partum body), please fill in the contact form, below. We look forward to hearing from you!
