How will this help me?

 

Ancient yogis understood the wisdom of the pelvic floor and the importance of accessing its unrealized energy in order to wake up to one’s full potential. Through pelvic floor yoga, you will learn how you can change habitual patterns of muscular tension that cause pain, constrict breathing, and perpetuate patterns of stuckness.

 

Many old traumas and habitual fear responses are rooted in the pelvic floor. These conditioned responses trigger fear based actions that get in the way of us connecting to our full selves. Through practice and increasing awareness, you can learn to flip the patterns upside down so that rather than holding you back, they become a source of strength and intelligence.

 

How does it work?

Although often overlooked, the interplay of the muscles in the pelvic floor are a key component in the overall health of the hips and knees, spine, organs, breath capacity and nervous system.  Located at the base of the spine, between the sitting bones, tailbone and pubic bone, the pelvic floor creates the foundation for your whole body.  A deep layer of muscles in the body, working with it requires a lot of awareness!  Pelvic floor yoga utilizes yoga poses and breathing techniques to directly address the health of the pelvic floor.  

 

 

What will I receive?

  • Build a kinesthetic and visual understanding of what the pelvic floor is and how it works.  

  • Begin to get a clearer picture of what is actually happening in the pelvic floor.  Where is it tight? Loose?  Vital? Numb?  Start to build a map.

  • Create a practice that will both deepen your relationship with and heal the pelvic floor in physical, mental, energetic and emotional ways.

  • Learn to cultivate vital energy at the root through awareness and practices.

  • Become more acutely aware of how “life” affects the feeling and tone in the pelvic floor. 

  • Learn to access the root as a source of information to help guide life’s decisions in a more healing and balanced way.

  • Nurture self love and compassion

  • Access the support of the pelvic floor as a guide toward unity.

“Working with Emily was a true gift.  I gained amazing body and breath understanding, which has really improved my pelvic floor pain. While working with Emily, she supported me in finding new ways of feeling my body, came up with new postures to practice at home, and helped me understand the anatomy of the pelvic floor which allowed me to visualize and bring breath into specific areas. Emily is a special practitioner, healer, and her grounded energy was just what I needed. My pelvic floor pain and overall body feels much better from my work with Emily. “

I loved realizing that I am actually feeling sensation (not pain!) in many hip openers and it’s ok to experience sensation. I also really benefited from today’s sequence and enjoyed some of the fullest and deepest breathing to date. Thank you for being ever present when you teach. Thank you for sharing from an honest and humble place.

 

About Emily:

Emily Garrett is a yoga teacher, mom, sister, daughter, wife, leader, and community member located in Burlington, VT.  She is the owner and director of Laughing River Yoga.  Her one on one sessions emphasize meeting the individual where they are while providing opportunities for growth.  

 

Grounded in a strong foundation of alignment, breath anatomy, and compassionate listening Emily has been guiding individuals toward greater health and awareness for the last 20 years.  When she was 17, she experienced a fall that injured her pelvis and began a lifelong journey of healing.  She found that what helped her most after her injury was yoga and devoted the next 27 years of her life to study, with an emphasis on the pelvis. 

 

After birthing her second child, she was initiated into a life changing journey with the pelvic floor.  Although Emily had worked with the pelvic floor for years, it wasn’t until she began seeing a pelvic floor physical therapist that she began to understand what was really happening in her own body.  Together with her Pelvic Floor PT, her yoga practice and advanced training with Pelvic Floor Yoga Teacher Leslie Howard, Emily began to unravel the mystery of her own pelvic floor and heal on a very deep level.  The work has been so transformative that Emily is passionate about sharing it with others.
