Have you experienced…

Bladder leaks when you sneeze, laugh, etc.
Constant urges to pee
Heaviness or bulging around your vagina
Vaginal birth
Being told you have pelvic organ prolapse
Or would like to learn about prevention of pelvic organ prolapse

                     …Then this workshop could be for you!

Join Ruth and Fritha for an introductory workshop combining the Whole Woman® Practice with the Feldenkrais Method® to learn about your pelvic structures and how to better support your pelvic organs. Posture is key in supporting pelvic organ health and comfort, and there can be many things that influence how we sit, stand, and walk. This workshop will offer participants foundational information and guidance on finding a natural and supportive posture through education, practice and discussion, and provide opportunities to clarify and integrate this learning through Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement® lessons.

Because we can’t have hands on time as a group, or see your body as clearly in a group zoom gathering, each participant will also have a private online session for up to 25 minutes within 3 days of the workshop with Ruth and Fritha to provide customized support and guidance for your body and understanding (more details when you register).

Some of the workshop will be done sitting in a chair or standing for short segments, and part of the workshop will include an Awareness Through Movement® lesson lying on the floor.

We welcome you no matter your interest, whether you are experiencing significant discomfort or are actively seeking education around prevention. The workshop will not include vigorous exercise, but rather education, slow/gentle movements as well as strengthening exercises to help you clarify your understanding of your posture and how to best support your pelvic organs.

Feel free to reach out with any questions! We look forward to working with you.

“Because of this workshop I have a great new awareness of my body and simple adjustments to posture that feel so much more empowered. I walked away enjoying and appreciating my body in contradiction to the ways that I had been berating myself previously. This is huge.”
Workshop Participant

“I am so grateful for the paradigm shift I have experienced thanks to having attended this workshop! Very skilled and respectful facilitators. Every woman should have access to this information.”
Ivette Lenard, Attentive Heart Coaching

“This program is illuminating as to how our bodies change and what we can easily each do to help our bodies function better for us; to move more easily; and to relax in new ways that will enhance many functions of our bodies. Use of models and well-articulated guidance through relaxation practice were of utmost help that we can easily rely on going forward. Thank you!”
