Thanks you so so much for creating the bladder health workshop. I was so impressed with the climate of trust you were able to provide during our time together-- your ability to make us feel so comfortable and cared for while discussing these highly personal and embarrassing matters.
An Introductory Workshop for Women of All Ages
Saturday, October 13 • 10:30 a.m.–1:00 p.m.
One-third of women ages 30 to 70 have experienced bladder-control problems. Contrary to popular belief, pelvic-floor strengthening is not the only means of prevention. This workshop will explain the basic anatomy and physiology of the urinary system, the pelvic muscles, and mechanisms that support continence.
Learn how to use Yoga to balance the nervous system and tone the muscles responsible for supporting the bladder, and become aware of five key lifestyle changes that can prevent problems now and as you get older.
Includes Yoga: New Beginners and All Levels
Connect with Your Connective Tissue
Sunday, October 28 • 10:30 a.m.–1:00 p.m.
What is fascia? This long-overlooked matrix is the tissue that holds us together, supporting all structures of the body from head to toe in a three-dimensional, uninterrupted web. In its healthy state, fascia has the ability to stretch and move, but with injury or inactivity, fascia can harden and shorten, creating restrictions and pain. Learn about the fascial system and how to work with it through gentle Yoga. Includes Yoga: All Levels
Strengthen, Coordinate, Relax
Sunday, November 18 • 10:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m.
It is a myth that pelvic floor strengthening is the only way to prevent pelvic floor issues. We need a strong but supple pelvic floor that supports a range of movements, including standing, lifting, and coughing. Develop an understanding of how the anatomy of pelvic floor muscles and their relationship to the thoracic diaphragm creates core stability. Using Yoga and a few specialized exercises, you will learn how to balance these important core muscles and enhance their everyday use. Includes Yoga: All Levels
Over the years I have attended many workshops at IYI (and at some other places)...YOURS was OUTSTANDING!!! THANK YOU! It was the PERFECT BLEND OF theory, discussion and practice. I especially loved the fact that
you answered all of the questions with patience and expertise. Moreover your ”hands on“ adjustments to students was valuable in enhancing the effects of the fascia "exercises."
