Learn how to reduce and manage vulvar pain with Dustienne Miller, a board certified women’s health physical therapist and Kripalu-trained yoga teacher, as she guides you through slow, mindful movements that reduce pelvic floor muscle holding patterns, improve mobility and increase lumbopelvic stability.
Each clearly-demonstrated movement is designed to guide you safely through a home yoga practice, created specifically to reduce pain and symptoms associated with vulvodynia.
This easy-to-follow, stress-relieving home practice serves as a holistic complement to women’s health physical therapy and other traditional medical 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 acts to
- warm up muscles
- lubricate joints
- decrease resting activity of the pelvic floor muscles
- encourage breath retraining
- direct your focus inward to the mind-body-spirit connection
Relaxation (10 minutes)
Relaxation allows you to experience the physical letting go of the muscles relaxing. The parasympathetic response is increased and you feel the physiological quieting.
This flow helps to retrain muscular holding patterns throughout your entire system, specifically targeting the pelvis, trunk, and jaw. The user is encouraged to soften, strengthen and lengthen the muscles that are affected by and contribute to vulvar pain.
By integrating this program into your overall pelvic health strategy, you create another opportunity for self-healing and increase the potential to live your healthiest, happiest life.
