Manage episode 356172884 series 82237
In this episode of The Align Podcast, we talk all things pelvis. From why certain people experience leaking to how we can improve our pelvic mobility. We discuss how we don’t move enough in our day-to-day life, what effects that may have on our health and what exercises we can try to strengthen our pelvic floor muscles. We also explore the relationship between the pelvic floor and the respiratory diaphragm and how regularly shifting resting positions can highly benefit us. Sara then tells us about the connection between sexual trauma and the pelvic floor as well as what it means if you have painful sexual intercourse. If you also want to find out what we think about our current way of dealing with bowel movements, take a listen!
