Power Your Pelvis: Stabilizing From the Pelvic Floor
Feb 23, 2019| $90
Is your pelvis overachieving, underachieving or well-balanced?
As a sitting culture, we tend to lose touch with that most important of foundations: the pelvic floor. Injury, childbirth, and aging all can contribute to a lack of tone and sense of instability right where we need to be connected the most. Symptoms can include hip & lower back pain, balance issues, incontinence, reproductive issues and the like. Yoga offers a brilliant remedy through cultivating awareness of bandhas. Moving the bandha keeps energy (and other substances) from leaking out the pelvic floor. Join long-time yoga and anatomy instructor Chiara Guerrieri and renowned pelvic floor specialist Kathe Wallace, PT for a workshop full of anatomical explanations, awareness exercises, and yoga practices. All levels and abilities welcome.
Date and Time:
2/23, 3/2 and last class will be 3/30 from 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm
$90 for 3 class series
Refunds of 90% up to five days prior to the workshop. No refunds allowable after that time.
About the instructor:
Chiara teaches with a focus on wellness through discovery, guided by extensive study into the body’s inner workings.

Chiara has studied a wide-range of bodymind disciplines – Yoga, Hypnosis, Neuro Linguistic Programing, Massage, Meditation, NonViolent Communication – mastering the material deeply enough to teach in each of these areas. Chiara has been working as a massage therapist since 1983, a yoga instructor and teacher of Anatomy & Physiology in yoga teacher trainings since 1996.
