Fanny Fitness - Lengthen and Strengthen with BallsMar 16, 2022
Pelvic health is a balance between effort and ease.
We need to lengthen and strengthen. I often lengthen first to get rid of the tension that may interfere with the ability of the muscles to contract fully and move through their full range of motion but it is also nice to lengthen and release at the end of the work.
I use fitness and movement to help women and vagina owners prevent and overcome pelvic floor challenges like incontinence and organ prolapse.
Incontinence is any unwanted loss of urine at any time and any amount. So, if you are not sitting on the toilet, wanting to go pee and urine comes out of you, that would be termed "incontinence."
Organ Prolapse is the descent and eventual protrusion of an internal pelvic organ through the vagina or anus.
You can read more about my surgery on my blog.
My exercise programs also help women during pregnancy, motherhood, and menopause.
In the following workout, we will start by connecting to the pelvic floor with the core breath and then coordinate that into movement. I am using the p.ball from pvole (this is an affiliate link) and my stability ball.
At the end of the work, we focus on lengthening the pelvic floor and hips and inner thighs.
