One in three women will suffer from pelvic pain. Almost half of all women will experience some type of pelvic floor dysfunction in their lifetime.
Pelvic floor yoga therapy sessions for both women and men are available with Kristen by appointment. These private sessions are for anyone experiencing pelvic pain, discomfort, or dysfunction including: incontinence, postpartum healing, prolapse, surgical recovery, pain or bleeding during intercourse, low back or hip pain, birth trauma, sexual trauma, and more. Core health concerns, including diastatis recti, can be addressed in conjunction with PFD. Email: email@example.com to schedule an appointment.
What is pelvic floor yoga? How is that different from kegels?
Pelvic Floor Yoga is a comprehensive approach to pelvic health. We use posture, breathing, and pelvic stability in yoga poses and real life scenarios for optimal function, mobility, and stability. Stress reduction plays an integral part in pelvic health as well as the body's natural healing process. The goal is to empower the student by teaching them the anatomy and sensations required to understand and improve their own body function in relation to the pelvic floor and its role in wellness. All things are taken into consideration: a person’s pelvic history, day-to-day activity, posture, and any core or pelvic dysfunction they have experienced. Kegels are an often misunderstood and misguided attempt to strengthen the pelvic floor. They can be performed and/or taught inaccurately; definitions and instruction vary widely. Also, a misconception is that practicing kegels (to tighten the pelvic floor) is a quick fix for incontinence, when sometimes that problem is due to a hypertonicity (tightness or shortened muscles), in which case kegels would worsen the problem.
A longtime local prenatal and postpartum yoga teacher, Kristen's yoga approach is one of empowerment and mind-body wellness. She believes in the healing power of yoga and practical applications that give students tools to help them feel and live well in their bodies. With over twelve years of yoga practice and six years of teaching experience, she is able to assess a variety of different needs in regard to both anatomy and emotional health. Kristen earned a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Kansas. She completed her 200-Hour Yoga Teaching Certification, Prenatal and Postpartum Level 1 & 2, and Restorative Yoga Certifications through Pranakriya School of Yoga Healing Arts, and Pelvic Floor Yoga Therapy Certification with Leslie Howard.
