Jade Integrated Health offers a variety of wellness and education based workshops throughout the year. These workshops often draw from the different services we provide at our locations and typically include providers from different background to form a whole human approach. This means that you may see a physical therapist, acupuncturist, yoga teacher, massage therapist or fitness instructor teaming up for a workshop. If there is a topic or workshop you are interested in Jade providing, please let us know! Here are our upcoming workshops:
Grounded Goddess - Pelvic Floor Workshop
Discover your Pelvic Floor through Yoga; A Workshop For Women
Knowledge and awareness is power. What is the pelvic floor? Why does it matter and how can yoga enhance your pelvic health? Do you have questions about bladder and bowel function and are not sure who to ask? Have you ever been instructed to engage your pelvic floor in yoga or exercise class and not known what that meant? If you have any questions regarding the pelvic floor, this workshop is for you.
This workshop is led by Jennifer Gelfand, Doctor of Physical Therapy and Certified Yoga Teacher, and Kirsten Twaite, Doctor of Physical Therapy. Both Jenn and Kirsten are physical therapists at Jade who specialize in pelvic floor health and rehab.
In this workshop, Jenn and Kirsten will share their expertise on the anatomy and intricate function of the pelvic floor. They will lead you through a sequence of breath work and yoga postures that will increase your awareness of pelvic floor engagement, coordination and flexibility. This will empower you to achieve optimal health of your pelvic floor with your current yoga practice and learn how these skills can translate into your daily life.
