Women’s Pelvic Health Workshop
SATURDAY JANUARY 18TH 2020 9.30-12 PM
AT PILATES BODY ALIGNED STUDIO, MENDIP COURT, BA5 3DG
£20 (INCLUDES CUPPA AND MID MORNING SNACK!)
Debbie will start the morning workshop. She will help you to find, connect with and strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. You will learn what feels right, what is wrong, why woman can leak urine, what a prolapse is and how can we deal with one, and how to exercise effectively.
The workshop is ideal for ALL women but perfect if you are;
- Post natal
- Peri menopausal
- Leak when you laugh, cough, sneeze, exercise
- Have the urge to go to the toilet and then NEED to go
- Have suffered with gynaecological issues or injury
- Love running and other high impact sports and what to look after your body
- Have pressure or pain in your vagina/rectum
- Have a prolapse and want to learn more about your body
- Want to get clued up on your own pelvic floor/core
The second part of the workshop will be taken by Corali, who will focus on showing you how to do good movements to start connecting the pelvic floor area, including correct breathing patterns. Then more challenging movements will be taught, increasing the demand on the pelvic floor muscles, with some homework exercises to take away on the day.
Glastonbury Pelvic Festival
Debbie hosted the first Glastonbury Pelvic Festival last Friday and Saturday (20-21st of September) for health professionals with a passion for Men and Women’s Pelvic Health at The Red Brick Building Glastonbury.
On Friday key note speakers Michelle Lyons, Louise Field, Debbie Dillon, Yvonne Brady and Elaine Miller shared their immense knowledge around women’s pelvic health with physiotherapists, midwifes, physical trainers and Pilates teachers.
The Friday evening saw the Red Brick Building open their doors to the general public as women young and old came to watch the Gusset Grippers, ‘Laugh don’t Leak’ show.
They were treated to laugh out loud jokes and key facts around women’s pelvic health.
They won’t forget their 10,10,3 mantra Elaine taught them! Daily pelvic exercises are so important for men and women and Elaine’s show is just one of her methods to educate and keep the population healthy and save the NHS so many unnecessary costs in supporting incontinent patients.
Guests also kindly dontated to Debbie’s charity of choice AMMF, the bile duct cancer charity. By entering the raffle they raised a great £100, thank you!
On Saturday Debbie welcomed Craig Allingham to the festival. He had travelled all the way from Australia, to run his course Nutting Out Men’s Health Physiotherapy. Craig spoke about the importance of pelvic floor exercises post prostatectomy but also about the importance of reducing lifestyle risk factors – diet, activity, stress and inflammation.
We would like to thank Imedicare and Natracare for supporting the event and EVB for coming to join us. An amazing couple of days dedicated to pelvic health.
