Asana incorporates gentle and slow movements combined with conscious breathing.
These practices are designed to
- mobilize fascial connections to the colon and entire GI system,
- decrease holding patterns of pelvic floor muscles, and
- encourage breathing techniques to optimize the relationship between the diaphragm and your pelvic floor.
The first flow (23 minutes) is a more active practice. It starts with sitting warm-ups, works up to standing postures, and ends with relaxation.
The second flow (20 minutes) is more quieting. During this gentle program, one does not leave the floor.
The relaxation phase of the practice allows you to experience the physical letting go of your muscles relaxing and stress melting away.
The parasympathetic nervous system response (rest and digest) is increased and your body, mind, and spirit are allowed time to integrate the changes that occurred during your practice.
Educate yourself about the anatomy of the pelvic floor. Knowledge is power!
Did you know that how you stand and sit has a direct affect on the pelvic floor? Learn how to find the ideal standing posture in this bonus track.
Breath-work is an important aspect of both yoga practice and how we work with the nervous system. Remember that your preferred breathing method is what matters, but there are options to mix it up and practice dirga, ujjayi, or simply a letting-go breath.
