Pelvic Floor and Postpartum Yoga, Online

Thursday, September 17, 2020 to Thursday, November 5, 2020

Join Iyengar Yoga Instructor Rebecca Weisman (CYT, CIYT Level 2) and Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist Meagen Satinsky (MPT, PYT) for an 8-week online course exploring the pelvic floor and gaining awareness, strength, relaxation and healing through the techniques of Iyengar Yoga. The pelvic floor is an important but not well understood part of our anatomy and its role in postpartum recovery, postural support, organ health, and sexual function is vital. Through yoga asana (poses), pranayama (breath work), and sensory anatomical exercises we will dive deep into the anatomy, physiology, and movements of this area that supports the root of our being.

Pelvic floor awareness may help ease:
--Low back pain and a weak core
--Hip and sacroiliac instability and pain
--Difficult or painful urinary and bowel symptoms including incontinence
--Painful menstruation or pain with sexual intercourse
--Postpartum symptoms including organ prolapse, cesarean, hormonal --imbalance, and abdominal diastasis
--Recovery from abdominal or pelvic surgery

This course is open to anyone interested in learning more about their pelvic floor! Birthing parents may find it challenging to find the time or energy after birth to focus on recovery; however, this time is important for re-balancing hormones and regaining muscle control and proper organ function, creating a faster recovery and preventative practices for future pelvic floor health. Those who are several years away from having given birth may also be helped by gaining greater awareness of pelvic alignment, and dealing with ongoing side effects of the birthing process.

Our unique 8-week course combines both online interactive classes with experiential anatomy modules that students can access online at any point during the course. You’ll receive:
--A weekly virtual yoga class with discussion and Q&A.
--Recordings of the weekly classes
--A safe, comprehensive practice manual with sequences and instruction to empower your home practice
--Anatomy homework with guided experiential tools for self-diagnosis
--Online group chat to help support your process
--Ample time with both instructors to problem-solve individual issues
--An additional 30 days access to all materials at the end of the course to help you continue your pelvic floor journey

This course is open to people of all genders including trans/non-binary and LGBTQ folx. The anatomy portion of the course will focus on reproductive organs associated with the ability to birth babies. We believe the techniques and approaches covered throughout the course can be beneficial and healing to all humans.

Due to the intimate nature of pelvic floor work, student enrollment is limited. This ensures a safe and supportive environment for all!
