This is a whole body movement based class taught by a Physical Therapist who is also a Pelvic Health Specialist. The focus of this class is to improve pelvic floor function in order to prevent and help treat problems such as urinary/bowel incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and pelvic pain. This class can be modified to meet you and your body where you are at, but regardless of your level, prepare to work hard and work up a sweat - there are no Kegels and no lying down in this pelvic floor class! NOTE: This class is done completely standing. NOTE: This class is for all women prenatal (someone who is already pregnant) and postpartum as well as pre-pregnancy (someone wanting to get pregnant but not pregnant yet) through post-menopause who are looking to treat and prevent pelvic floor symptoms and improve pelvic floor function. Students should ensure they have been cleared to exercise by their physician. Recommended props: light 1-5 lb hand weights (or water bottles/cans) Also meets: Tuesday
This class is appropriate for all students with all experience levels, including new and beginner students who are still learning the basics.
You'll get a great workout, and still have energy later.
