how will this help me?

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! 

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?

Pelvic floor yoga utilizes yoga poses and breathing techniques to directly address the health of the pelvic floor.  One on one sessions with Emily begin with an intake process to get a sense of what you are working with, followed by an easy to understand education around how the pelvic floor works and which techniques are best suited to address your particular needs.  Emily will help you design a home practice that utilizes breathing exercises, asana, journaling, experiential homework and meditation to cultivate balance and healing.  Depending on your goals, you can choose to meet for either one, three or ten sessions.

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 and EGY Align.  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.
