Well Woman Yoga for Pelvic Health – 1:1

Birthlight has developed a totally original yoga-based approach to create optimal pelvic tone, avoiding and repairing the damaging effects of both hyper toning through intensive exercise and hyper weakness due to lack of exercise for any reason. The combination of exercises and deep breathing is easy to learn and to practice, accessible to women with all levels of fitness and very effective within 6 to 8 weeks. Besides toning the pelvic floor in its entire length rather than in a partial way, practices deepen breathing and boost overall energy, creating a renewed foundation for wellbeing.

Improving blood circulation in the pelvis through specific sequences of yoga poses and abdominal breathing helps create a cascade of positive physiological effects and regulate the menstrual cycle. Well Woman Yoga for Pelvic Health, either in small classes or in one-to-one sessions, is recommended for women suffering from dysmenorrhea, endometriosis, fibroids, PGCOS and PMS.
