HELLO DOWN THERE!
Pelvic Floor Yoga Workshop
With Julia Bledsoe, C-IAYT
3 Sundays, 10 am – 12 pm
November 7, 14, 21, 2021

Cost: $65 by 10/23, $75 thereafter

Register at www.mindfulcareyoga.com

Yoga helps us cultivate awareness of the subtle body through our practice of poses and pranayama. We may rarely stop to think about how yoga poses can positive or negatively affect the function of pelvic floor. Consider the proximity of the pelvis to the feet and legs…communication from the legs to the upper body is transmitted directly through the pelvis and the muscles of the pelvic floor. The foundation of our core rests in the pelvic floor, the seat of the root chakra which is associated with our feelings of safety and security.

As such, many emotions are stored in this complex known as the pelvic girdle and it can be a place of emotional and physical holding. The pelvic floor needs to be stable and flexible.

If you are experiencing any of the following, you might benefit from pelvic floor yoga:
* Pelvic pain
* Lower back
* Hip or groin problems
* Discomfort during sex or while using tampons
* Leak when laughing or sneezing
* Have to go the bathroom too often
* Prolapsed organs
* Pre and post pregnancy

Part one of this three-part workshop, will start with a lecture on anatomy followed by a “Meet and Greet” discussion on getting to know your own “Down There”, and introduction of postural movements to awaken your understanding of this region of your body.

Part two will be yoga asana and breath work to address the two types of pelvic floors.  Handouts will be provided.

Part three will be a follow-up practice to reinforce the postures, alignment, modifications, and answer questions.

Space is limited to 10 participants

Although helpful, no yoga experience is required. All female identified or female assigned at birth people welcome. Bring your friends, sisters, mothers and daughters.

Covid Safety: Vaccination and masks required.

moon medicine restoratives image

MOON MEDICINE RESTORATIVE YOGA
with Ray Ilyse, RYT500
Offered One Sunday a Month, 5:00 – 6:15 pm
Upcoming dates: Nov. 21, Dec. 19, Jan. 16

Join together as a community and share sacred space in a Moon Medicine Restorative Yoga monthly offering.

In Ayurvedic medicine, moonlight is believed to help heal and soothe the body. The moon gently energizes, in contrast with the sun’s sharp brightness. Moonlight exposure is thought to also relieve anxiety and stress and improve relaxation by prompting the natural release of melatonin.

At the start of practice we will set intentions and open with a journaling prompt, breathwork, and easy movement.

Then when settling into the restorative journey the body will be supported in specific postures through the use of bolsters, blankets, blocks and straps. Restorative Yoga calms the central nervous system and invites the body to experience a deeper state of relaxation.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

Ray Ilyse is a 500hr RYT, Reiki Master, and Certified Massage Therapist. Ray did her studies in Southern California and on the Island of Kauai, HI. She loves moving slow, staying in the present moment, and sharing sacred space.

Space is limited. Pre Registration is requested.

Covid-19 Safety Protocol: Masks are required inside The Yoga Center regardless of vaccination status per current state mandate and CDC recommendations. Thank you for your cooperation and support.

PROPS: The Yoga Center provides props. If you would like to bring your own, please have the following items on hand: a mat, a blanket or two, blocks, bolster or pillows, maybe an eye pillow or something to cover your eyes with to block out the light.

CLASS FEE: Suggestion donation: $22
