If you live with pelvic pain, you know how challenging the road to healing can be. A quick search of the term “pelvic floor” brings up loads of information on kegels, but kegels aren’t always the solution, especially when it comes to pelvic pain. If you suffer from endometriosis, vulvodynia, prostatitis, chronic pelvic pain syndrome, or painful bladder syndrome (just to name a few) , your muscles may be overactive. Improving mobility and coordination to relax the pelvic floor can be extremely valuable when managing pelvic pain.
Yoga can be a great pain management tool and complement to pelvic rehabilitation. A randomized control trial (RCT) from 2017 looked at the sole effect of yoga on chronic pelvic pain and found statistically significant improvement in quality of life measures and a decrease in pain after eight weeks (Saxena et. al, 2017)
This yoga for pelvic floor relaxation pack offers an express(approximately 20 minutes) and a 45-minute session that will teach you to better connect with your pelvic floor and work on mobility and relaxation in yoga practice.
The classes are led by Megan Lavroff, a yoga instructor and doctor of physical therapy. As a bonus, you will receive a mini restorative yoga video as well and the intro to yoga class.
