What (is this)? A workshop on the pelvic floor! Come to this workshop to learn about your pelvic floor, the role it plays in your body, how problems/discomforts/etc. you may feel could be related to issues in this part of your body, and how YOU can help create a happier, healthier pelvic floor for yourself! Why? The pelvic floor is a key part of our body, and we are generally taught so little about it. Many doctors do not understand enough either. Some signs of a not-toned pelvic floor may include having:  Urge or stress incontinence (50% of women suffer from some form of incontinence!)  Tightness throughout the body, or the jaws/neck/shoulders  Rounded lumbar/ tucked pelvis  Difficulty breathing from diaphragm (i.e. being a “chest breather”)  Digestive issues  Pain sitting, vulva pain… and much more
