Learn how to relieve pain and symptoms related to interstitial cystitis with Dustienne Miller, a board certified women’s health physical therapist and Kripalu-trained yoga teacher, as she invites you to use breath and gentle yoga postures that help manage stress and, consequently, improve function.
Each clearly-demonstrated movement is designed to guide you safely through a home yoga routine, created specifically to support treatment and management of interstitial cystitis.
This easy-to-follow, stress-relieving home practice serves as a holistic complement to traditional clinical approaches. This tailored program contains two sections:
Asana (15 minutes)
Asana incorporates gentle and slow movements combined with conscious breathing.
The design of this flow
- calms the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight response),
- lengthens and strengthens pelvic floor muscles, and
- promotes myofascial release.
Relaxation (10 minutes)
Relaxation allows you to experience the physical letting go of the muscles relaxing. You will feel the physiological quieting, allowing your body, mind, and spirit to integrate the changes that occurred during practice.
Practice breath work, mindfulness and body awareness techniques that reduce stress that often accompanies interstitial cystitis. When you manage the stress, you are able to increase function. By integrating these flows into your overall pelvic health strategy, you implement another strategy for self-healing and increase the potential to live your healthiest, happiest life.
