It's time to get beyond Kegels!
You've probably heard of Kegel exercises,
but do you know really how to do them?
Are they working for you?
The key to your pelvic floor is... your whole body!
In order to learn awareness and strength of the pelvic floor, we do gentle exercises that begin with a whole, full-body movement and then layer in the pelvic floor.
The Pelvic Floor is important for...
Getting up from a chair
That's why strengthening the pelvic floor is important for every woman...
active or non-active, young or young at heart, experiencing issues or eager to prevent them.
Having a well functioning and strong pelvic floor is part of taking care of yourself… now, and for your future.

The movements of the pelvic floor are subtle. Sometimes it's hard to know if you are moving this part of you. The Feldenkrais® Method has been shown to be very effective in helping increase awareness of the pelvic floor.
Just like every other part of us, the pelvic floor doesn't work alone. It is a team player in your synergistic system of basic life functions. Instead of isolating the movement of the pelvic floor immediately, we begin with a full-body movement and layer in the pelvic floor movements. This way of learning has been shown to be very effective and anyone can do it.
If we contract a muscle continually, it actually becomes weak. You will learn how to sense and embody the phases of relaxation and strengthening. We have to sense where something is in us in order to move it and to strengthen it. We begin with awareness and this leads to strengthening.
"Wow, for the first time I can sense my pelvic floor moving! I have been doing Kegels for years and I was not even sure I was moving anything or doing them right!"
