If you wish to connect to the intuitive, creative part of you, and realise the eternal Self at our core, you need to consider what yoga really is.
There is no single definition of yoga.
Yoga is a science, it is a body of techniques that lead us to consciously connect with ourselves and with life. In yoga, there is no dogma or belief system attached to it.
In Sanskrit, the word ‘yoga’ is used to signify any form of connection. In a philosophical sense, however, yoga means the conscious connection of the limited little egoistic self with the unlimited, eternal, higher Self.
Benefits of Yoga
Yoga has proven to be beneficial in the prevention of various diseases and ailments. In addition, it addresses many everyday conditions, offsetting the stress, anxiety, and depression that are so common in our modern lives. Yoga applies a holistic approach to the human being, addressing the human being as a whole on all levels of existence: the physical or material level, energetic or pranic level, emotional or astral level, mental level, and even causal (karmic) level. Asanas (poses), pranayama (breathing practices), meditation, and purification techniques are synthesised to help us activate our inner self-healing mechanisms to assist the body in wellness to all aspects of the being.

Pelvic floor yoga
A Healthy Pelvic Floor and Pelvic Floor Yoga
Pelvic floor yoga sessions, which are strengthening, stabilising, stretching and softening the pelvic floor, are helping to create the correct foundation of each movement in the body.
The female pelvis and the pelvic muscles are an under appreciated region of the anatomy. Important not only for sexuality, but the pelvic muscles are also crucial for optimal functioning of the body. The pelvic muscles begin at perineum and they are complex arrangement of muscles creating a “bowl” for the lower organs.
Common problems that are related to the health of the pelvic floor are:
- bladder weakness,
- prolapse of the uterus or the bladder
- digestive, menstrual and sexual difficulties
This area can be too tight, or too weak and sometimes both. Many women have a lack of tone due to age, lifestyle, bearing children or hereditary tendencies. What is less commonly known is that about 20-25% of all women have a chronic holding and tightening of the muscles of the pelvic floor. Sometimes an unhealthy holding pattern can start in early age or perhaps develop as a result of a fall, an accident or sexual abuse.
A strong pelvic floor helps keep the pelvic and abdominal organs healthy. But strong also means flexible. Someone with a weak pelvic floor (too loose or too tight) might develop prolapses and incontinence.
Prolapsed organs, incontinence and pelvic pain are common to over 50% of women. Yet what is most prescribed for all cure is – ” do Kegels”. A healthy pelvic floor is more than doing Kegels. A healthy pelvic floor is more than doing mula bandha. These practices are misunderstood and can sometimes lead to more problems.
In my sessions you will learn how how to soften, strengthen, and tone your pelvic floor muscle. You will learn that every pelvis has a story and how to start a conversation with yours.
