Your Foundational Core: Yoga for Pelvic Floor Health


Most people know the importance of core strengthening for health and long-term well-being.

Unfortunately,  an important part of the core muscle system, the pelvic floor, often gets overlooked in our core strengthening efforts.

This comes at a cost,  as this part of the body is particularly vulnerable to developing dysfunction over time. Common pelvic floor issues include prolapsed organs, incontinence, and pelvic pain, which get increasingly common with age.

In this online course, Physical Therapist Jessica Reale and yoga teacher and pelvic health specialist Patricia Schmidt will show you how we can use yoga to help maintain and support a healthy pelvic floor.

Learn how to use targeted yoga asana and breathing practices to increase flexibility, strength, and awareness on the pelvic floor.

Working with the pelvic floor offers immediate and also life-long benefits: It can aid in the preparation for and recovery from pregnancy and childbirth; offer a defence against prolapse of pelvic or abdominal organs, and slow or prevent common conditions of the pelvic floor associated with aging, stress, and disuse (including incontinence).

This Course Also Includes:

  • Yoga Practice Video: Enjoy a yoga practice video that accompanies this course designed by Dr. Jessica Reale and Patricia Schmidt.
  • Recordings of All Webinar Sessions: It’s generally acknowledged that many people only retain 10-20 percent of what they learn in a workshop. You will get access to the recordings of all webinar sessions – both MP3 (downloadable) and MP4 (streaming online), enabling you to go back and listen to the workshop as many times as you like.
  • Transcripts of All Sessions: Ever wanted to refer to a certain part of a course? Even the best note takers miss a point every so often. With the transcripts of the webinar sessions, you can go back and refer to particularly important passages or clarify sections you were in doubt about.

This course qualifies for 3.5 CEs with Yoga Alliance.

I wanted to expand on my thank you. Yoga U Online has been an absolute lifesaver for me. I moved from a yoga mecca to a yoga desert. Instead of having my choice of teachers and styles and special workshops, I now have to travel an hour to take a class. The excellent teachers and interesting topics at Yoga U Online have kept me moving ahead in my practice. I am grateful for all the wonderful yoga you bring to me. Thank you.
Your website is a blessing to guide me deeper into my personal practice and my teaching practice.
My students will appreciate all the gems I've picked up from your teachers.Thank you so much!
