8 steps to pelvic floor happiness
Meditation and getting back to exercise
Relaxation is vital for your pelvic floor happiness.
Taking time to relax each day will help your body heal and will help your pelvic floor relax.
This guided meditation focuses on connecting to your body and letting go of tension.
If you are short on time you can set the timer on your phone for 5 minutes, lie down, close your eyes and just be still. Just 5 minutes will really benefit you.
Getting back to exercise might be next on your list after you’ve completed your pelvic floor rehab.
The two classes below will help you to build strength in your feet and stability in your hips.
This will be really beneficial for running and playing sports.
The key is to take your time, practice the classes a few times and you’ll feel yourself getting stronger.
When you feel more balanced doing these exercises you can start to try out running or playing sport again.
Remember to listen to your body and take your time.
- Take time to relax
- Getting back to running and playing sport
Try to keep a journal – this will help with accountability.
This week focus on:
– noticing how your body feels
– Any changes in how you experience each exercise
– Notice your pelvic floor symptoms
"I believe that everyone can benefit from a safe and sustainable yoga practice. I carefully create inclusive yoga classes that focus on strength, mobility and balance. We all have different bodies, different abilities and different goals. Each person's yoga practice is personal to them and my role is to guide you on your journey.
I've been practising yoga for over 20 years and in 2016 decided that I wanted to expand my knowledge further so decided to train as a yoga teacher. Since then I have completed 2 teacher trainings in 'traditional hatha yoga' and 'yoga with a focus on the science of movement.'
I've loved the power of movement since childhood when I studied ballet, tap and disco dance. I've always been fascinated in how our bodies move and how we can learn new ways of using our body which benefit our whole wellbeing.
My interest in women's health started when I rehabilitated my pelvic floor with a full body approach. I learned how to realign, stretch and strengthen my body to improve the function of my pelvic floor. Now I'm passionate about sharing what I've learned with others!"
