suppleness, sensitivity and tone of your pelvic floor muscles

* Examine the feminine power of active receptivity

In this workshop Francesca will give her perspective of ways to connect the pelvic floor muscles and sphincters to our skeletal structure and it’s organization. It will introduce participants to aspects of The Feldenkrais Method ® that can help to increase the strength as well as the sensitivity of the pelvic floor. The workshop is designed practitioners who would like to learn how to work with clients who may experience symptoms such as incontinence, pelvic floor weakness or prolapse as well as understanding how to access core strength. This way of working has also been useful as part of the preparation for and recovery from pelvic surgery such as a hysterectomy, prostate surgery, bowel surgery, pre and post birth approaches and surgical procedures. It is also a very useful workshop for people who are simply interested in learning more about themselves.
Some of the points Francesca hopes to cover will be:
How to recognize the muscle groups that can both complement and interfere with the identification and movement of the different pelvic floor muscles and sphincters
How to differentiate the function and movement of the superficial perineum muscles and the deeper muscles (e.g. Levator Ani)
Finding the relationship between the pelvic floor, the respiratory diaphragm and upright stability.
