I wrote a book! Well, a short e-book that is. But a book nonetheless. When I published my article Modern Yoga: Everything You Want to Know About the Pelvic Floor for Shut Up and Yoga back in April we realized that there was so much more we wanted to cover and felt that the topic was deserving of its own book. So we expanded on the original text, added new sections, more exercises, and even consulted an expert (a pelvic health physiotherapist) for a Q&A.
I am very proud of the work we have accomplished and the final product we released. This book is a great handbook for yoga teachers, yoga students, or any human being with a pelvis interested in learning more about their pelvic health!
The book is for sale on Shut Up and Yoga’s website which you can find here. As you’ll see on their webpage, Modern Yoga: Everything You Want to Know About the Pelvic Floor provides:
💡 82 pages of practical and condensed knowledge
🧠 Information about the complex and multi-functional nature of the pelvic floor and how it relates to breathing, your posture, sex and orgasms, and more
🤔 Information about pelvic floor disorders and why Kegels are not all they’re cracked up to be
🏋️♂️ 5 tips & 6 functional movement exercises to help improve your pelvic health
💆♀️ Learn how to RELAX your pelvic floor with pelvic diaphragmatic breath work and reverse Kegels
🔥 Practical recommendations for yoga teachers & explanation of why the “lift your pelvic floor” cue is outdated (goodbye, Mula Bandha!)
