Bladder & Pelvic Floor Health  You can take control of your bladder and improve your overall health but Kegels are not enough. We'll explore meditation, diet, pessaries, biofeedback, hormones, sex, aging, pelvic floor contractions, breathing exercise, regulating internal thoraco-pelvic pressure, the pelvic wand, and bladder re-training. Don't understand some of those terms? Then come! No prior knowledge required. We'll review options that are available to you through modern western medicine and through traditional therapies. You will leave with a simple exercise program that you can do at home.

This is not your mama's Kegel class!

Qi-gong Meditation is a method of moving energies through our bodies and cultivating awareness for the purpose of promoting health and vitality.  Energize, awaken, and revitalize yourself with the Inner Smile to your organs.  Cultivate, refine, and balance your energies with the MicroCosmic Orbit. You will learn a complete practice that can be your practice for a lifetime, or, this practice might be the bridge that launches you to another style. That's ok! Most meditations are done seated in a chair; one is a standing/moving meditation. All levels welcome.

Core & Pelvic Floor Workout

This class was developed to use movement as a way of promoting neuro-muscular coordination between the large muscles of the thighs and buttocks and those of the pelvic floor. Those struggling with urinary or anal leaking (incontinence), prolapse, pelvic pain, sacro-iliac pain, sciatica, prostatitis, brain trauma, or post-partum recovery will benefit most.

We also work on balance and proprioception, as these mirror the condition of the pelvic floor. This is a rather Yin class--slow, quiet, meditative, paying close attention. You need not have attended my Bladder & Pelvic Floor Health class to come to this class. Everyone welcome. No sign up necessary; walk-ins only.
