Perri Van Rossem’s Pelvic Floor Workshop with Amara Vidya

 

 

Join Certified Yoga Therapist Perri van Rossem to learn why the pelvic floor is one of the most important muscle groups in the human body. Discover how it is that it supports the base structure of the spine, our urinary and defecator functions, and it how plays an integral role in our overall energy levels. You will learn through understanding, refining your perception, and engaging with your pelvic floor how you can both strengthen and relax these vital tissues as needed.

In this workshop Perri will introduce you to the pelvic floor from an anatomical perspective. You will learn first how to identify your pelvic floor, and then how to isolate it in order to make it a strong supportive floor, and a flexible open passage way. These practical exercises can help to alleviate discomforts that stem from a weak or overly tense pelvic floor.

This workshop will teach you not only how to improve your lower back and organ health; it will help you access your life force. This workshop is for everyone!
