Yoga + Your Pelvic Floor Workshop (All Genders) with Avery Kalapa

Anatomy Asana + Breath

Sign up for the exclusively Trans and Nonbinary Pelvic Floor WS here.

Join us for a fun, deep, affirming 2.5 hr workshop to discover a new framework, learn some cool anatomy, and release, strengthen and bring somatic awareness to the pelvic floor. I teach about the pelvis in a non binary way.

Let’s take an afternoon for some empowering sensing, feeling, breathing and healing focused on the special world of the inner pelvis.
 
This experiential workshop will help you learn to sense the 3 layers of muscle of your unique pelvic floor. Through exploring specific actions and structural alignment through Iyengar yoga, learn what practices will best support you as you sit, stand, move, and practice yoga. Discover ways to optimize pelvic health, including good circulation, movement, relaxation, and stability. The inner pelvis is powerhouse of energetic vitality, too. This workshop is all levels and will include a slideshow, restorative, and active poses. We will use props: have a chair, belt (or scarf), blocks, (or books) and some blankets and/or throw pillows/ towels handy. 
 

THIS WORKSHOP MIGHT BE FOR YOU IF:

  • It’s hard to feel whats going on down there. Your pelvis has been through a lot. but you know that connection and healing in this area could be so powerful.

 

  • You’re dealing with pelvic pain, incontinence, prolapse, SI joint issues, sciatica, or other issues related to the pelvic floor.

 

  • You’re curious, what the heck is mula bandha all about, anyways?

 

  • You’ve been told you should be doing kegels, but  question (or maybe should be questioning) if that’s  actually helpful for you body.

 

  • You’ve wanted to take a pelvic floor class for a while, but cringe at the thought of someone saying “female/ male pelvis” and having to deal with binary gender, dysphoria, and cis norms in a supposedly healing space. You want to learn about your body and energy in a way that affirms and uplifts.
 Recommended for parents, yoga lovers, yoga teachers, teacher trainees, health care providers, and anyone with a pelvic floor! Workshops count towards Yoga Alliance CEUs.

My goal with these online classes is to offer deeply accessible yoga as a nourishing practice of refuge and rejuvenation during these troubling, transformational times.
