Pelvic Health in Pregnancy and Beyond


PLS YOGA, and Dr. Amanda Shipley are pleased to invite you to the first of a series of education events on pelvic floor health in pregnancy and beyond, held at Renew Pelvic Health. On February 19th (rescheduled from January 29th), please join us for this free education and information session on pelvic health, yoga therapy, and pregnancy. Topics covered will include

  • a brief overview of optimal pelvic health, from before our journey into pregnancy and well beyond it

  • modifications to traditional poses, from a pelvic perspective, for the child-bearing body and labouring body, including yoga practices that support good foetal alignment

  • basic yoga breathwork and postures to improve non-beneficial conditions and symptoms of dysfunction (including pain, incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, etc.)

  • yoga as a pathway of care for pelvic disease and dysfunction

  • the basics of core conditioning for healthy pelvic systems and structures

Suitable for pregnant and postpartum women, but also health practitioners and fellow yoga teachers, who want to support their patients and clients with this information. 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 an upcoming session for (peri-)menopausal women), please fill in the contact form, below.
