Effortless Pelvic Health - A workshop for women
9.00am to 1.00pm, WellBath, Wooley Lane, Larkhall, Bath, BA1 8DN
One in three women experience pelvic floor disorders, being more likely after childbirth or as we become increasingly mature. Many women suffer in silence, but there are ways to improve pelvic floor function.
The effects can include incontinence, prolapses and sexual dysfunction. Any (or all) of these can have significant long-term effects on your life; stress incontinence may affect you when exercising, laughing or sneezing, resulting in avoidance of everyday activities to avoid awkwardness.
Pelvic floor issues can also affect wider functioning and movements, including posture, breathing and balance and can result in back pain.
Exercises such as Kegels work only on specific muscles, however these muscles cannot operate in isolation. Using larger body movements can co-ordinate all the muscles surrounding the pelvis, working together to help you.
In this workshop, you will learn what can be done to improve your pelvic floor function, and how to do it. You will experience how the pelvic floor muscles work with your breathing and with muscles in the lower abdomen, legs and with your spine, so that your whole body helps to improve your pelvic floor.
Workshop costs £45 including home-made refreshments and notes to take away with you.
