So you’ve been practicing and teaching yoga for some time now, or maybe you are an experienced physical therapist of some kind (like a Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist, Massage Therapist, Osteopath, Chiropractor).
You are great at what you do and have a serious passion for supporting clients to feel ease in their bodies and their minds.
And, you are hungry to learn more.
You want to broaden your knowledge about the body and movement and notice that students often report pelvic pain, hip flexor tightness, pelvic instability and other “reproductive” related symptoms. Or perhaps you experience this yourself.
Or perhaps you are hearing lots more buzz about the pelvic floor health these days..and you are intrigued.
We have something amazing for you.
This 20 hour course bridges brain science with functional stability. You will learn how pelvic health is connected to chronic tension and pain.
This course will introduce you to SomaYoga concepts as they relate to optimal pelvic floor health. Not only will you get to explore this in your own body and personal practice but you will learn how to add it into your classes or therapeutic sessions.
SomaYoga is a synergy of Somatics, therapeutic yoga and classic asana that helps us work towards smarter muscles, more functional movement and lasting pain resolution. This approach blends neuroscience, philosophy and core practices of Somatics to revolutionize your approach to physical practice and teaching.
By gaining a somatic approach and understanding to pelvic floor health you can enhance yoga/therapeutic practice and class offerings to support your clients to:
- Bring greater awareness to their entire body and muscles and the relationship of the pelvic floor to the diaphragm, jaw, breath and core stability.
- Nourish the nervous system by exploring practices that truly support a rest and digest nervous system response to support a release of tension and increase in function.
- Learn about how stress, trauma and habituated movement patterns create pain in the body.
- Retrain healthy movement patterns so you and your clients can move more functionally and pain free.
- Release tension in the pelvic floor, diaphragm, hip flexors and abdominals using the somatic technique of pandiculation and see how this supports a more functional yoga practice.
- Help your clients regain an intimacy and connection with their pelvic floor.
This course is perfect for:
- Yoga and movement instructors who want to increase knowledge, scope of practice and broaden your teaching skills.
- Curious yoga students or persons in pain who want to deepen their body awareness and physical practice, get out of pain, and increase athletic performance.
- Bodyworkers & healers such as PTs, OTs, Chiropractors & Massage Therapists who want to add a Somatic foundation to their professional skill set to help clients with pelvic floor symptoms.
