Pelvic Floor Teacher Training with Leslie Howard

June 8 - June 11


In this twenty hour training for experienced yoga teachers, health care professionals, midwives, doulas, fitness trainers, massage therapists and just plain curious practitioners of yoga that want to deepen their practice, we will learn to teach students with pelvic floor issues and apply the techniques of Pelvic Floor YogaTM. Topics will include:

Cultural, medical and historical contexts of women and the pelvis
Current understanding of the pelvis, sexuality, misconceptions and modern medical care
In-depth anatomy of the pelvis, hip flexors and rotators and connective musculature and how they translate into pelvic health
How posture affects the pelvic floor
Identifying hypertonic vs. hypotonic muscles and the difference between a strong muscle and a tense muscle and a loose muscle
The role of emotion on the breath and how this impacts the pelvic floor
How to teach breath and asana to women who need tone in their pelvis and as well as those who have too much tone
How to hold a safe environment for women
What to do with the pelvic floor during all stages of pre- and post-natal
Restorative yoga for the pelvic floor

The training includes an e-book version of Leslie’s book, Pelvic Liberation which is the required reading. The training can be used for continuing education for Yoga Alliance and NCBTMB. Each day we will have a short break.
