The Pelvic Floor—Muscles for LivingSitting Pelvic Floor Franklin Method Exercise 2

Sitting Pelvic Floor Franklin Method Exercise 3

The bony pelvis and the muscles that hold it together underneath (the muscles are the pelvic floor) form the foundation forSitting Pelvic Floor Franklin Method Exercise 1 our torso. When the muscles of the pelvic floor become too weak, too loose, too tight or dis-coordinated and badly organised then the whole body will suffer. If the pelvic floor muscle are not working properly then the hips and legs will be strained and lose flexibility, the low back will become tight and achy and the organs in the abdomen – and particularly the pelvic and reproductive organs – will start to lose their efficiency. These muscles support us in our movements - whether they are the movements of walking, dancing, running, sports or making love - if these muscles do not work well in our bodies then the whole of us suffers physically and emotionally.

This workshop is about finding ways to tone and release the pelvic floor muscles so that they can reorganise to support and liberate their neighbours - the hips, the low back and the organs. We will use imagery, gentle movements - on the floor and sitting - and self-touch to facilitate the reorganisation of the pelvic floor.

This workshop is for Men and Women (- yes guys have a pelvic floor too!!!). Please wear the sort of clothes you would wear for yoga or Pilates.  email David Kellett DO, Franklin Method Teacher to book a place. 

The skills and ideas embodied in this workshop are useful beyond their personal application in daily domestic life. If you are someone who works in coaching movement (sport, dance or martial arts say) then what you learn here can enrich you professional life. Likewise for Heath Practitioners like Osteopaths, Doctors, Physiotherapists and other bodyworkers - what you learn in these workshops in terms of experiential anatomy and its use through movement and imagery work in facilitating better body awareness is something you can begin to use with your clients /patients. If you want to know more about this aspect of this workshop, or the workshops I run in general, then please contact me David Kellett DO, Franklin Method Teacher
