The Pelvic Floor: Playing with Your Inner Trampoline in Asana Practice and Everyday Live
The pelvic floor is the root of the foundational core of the body. It consists of a group of muscles at the base of the pelvis whose function is to support the spine and thus is directly related to the stability of our posture in sitting, standing and dynamic movement. It also provides support for three major systems in the body: the urinary, the digestive and the reproductive system which are housed in the pelvis.
In this 4-hour workshop we will explore in a playful manner the elasticity and range of motion of this membrane and address issues of tightness and laxity and their tendencies in both male and female pelvis. We will see that addressing these issues has a beneficial effect on the health of our inner organs as well as on our posture and movement.
In the yoga practice, this area is considered the energetic root (mulandhara chakra) of the human being and many long term difficulties in one’s practice can be resolved by the opening of this foundation.
The workshop will be taught in English but all terminology will also be translated in Greek.
