This is a workshop specifically designed for women to gain knowledge on the elusive "kegel" that > 70% of women perform incorrectly, and obtain comprehensive knowledge on how the pelvic floor functions as part of the deep core system.

This workshop wraps up workshop #1. In More than Just a Kegel: Yoga and Your Core - Part 2, we will go through a brief review of knowledge obtained in Part 1 and participants will gain greater understanding of the deep core system, learn how to activate it and, finally, how to connect with it correctly and appropriately during the practice of yoga.
