The Pelvic Floor Piston: Foundation for Fitness (BB)
The Pelvic Floor Piston: Foundation for Fitness
The pelvic floor has long been the only muscle targeted in the battle against incontinence, and yet ignored in our pursuit of a strong ‘core’. New research has helped us understand that the pelvic floor is actually a critical part of the ‘core’ team and collectively that team works together to keep your center anchored and dry. Integrated teamwork, linked to the up and down pistoning action of our breath, provides a sturdy foundation that supports our joints and movement, accelerates fitness, and keeps us dry.
Internationally recognized Physical Therapist Julie Wiebe is a clinician, educator and advocate for women, specializing in returning women to fitness after injury and pregnancy. Julie guides you step-by-step through this self-paced video series offering new concepts, exercises, movement strategies and body awareness tips easily integrated into your day. A revolution for how you use your body, PFP: Foundation for Fitness is your first step toward resolving leaks and restoring a strong foundation for your movement and fitness.
