I went along to the launch weekend at Roseanna Grace Physiotherapy in Jesmond on Saturday. This clinic specialises in pelvic floor health and I wanted to ensure I’m teaching my students correctly and with the most up to date information. I learnt a lot from the helpful director Roseanna. 80% of women perform pelvic floor exercises incorrectly, often engaging the glutes and the abdomen. It’s very subtle. And best done on the outbreath.
It’s generated some interesting conversations with various people, ranging from those who think it’s just about squeezing (and pulling a face!) and those who wonder if once a year is enough!!
(N.B. Conversations about pelvic floors generate a lot of giggles…perhaps it should be a key part of the laughter sessions, for several reasons…!!)
