Pelvic HealthPodcasts, Videos & Articles
What do you think of when you think of pelvic health? If you are like most people, you might think of it as something for women, related to childbearing, and something we can’t control as we age. However, the truth is, whether a person is male, female, non-binary, or non-gender conforming, everyone has a pelvis and a pelvic floor. And as with any other part of the body, it is important for us to know what this part of our body does for us, and how we can ensure it is healthy and working well.
Here are some podcasts, articles and videos that will help you to learn more about pelvic health, so that you can help your yoga students. If you want to learn more – check out Pelvic Health Professionals.
