Pelvic Floor Workshop – 11th January 2020 – Bath
A 2.5-hour practical workshop for a maximum of 15 women who love to run, but worry about their pelvic floor.
If you are a female runner struggling with pelvic or intercourse pain, stress incontinence, back, hip, knee or ankle pain then this is the workshop for you. If Kegels aren’t working for you then its time to try something different.
This workshop will bring the pelvic floor alive so that you can understand its anatomy and how it connects to every other part of your body. We will show you how to move so that you can load and lengthen your pelvic floor. We will teach you how to connect to it whether you are sitting, standing or running, and we will discuss some of the habits that female runners adopt, which affects how the pelvic floor performs. We will also show how some everyday lower limb and hip injuries can occur as a result of bad habits, and discuss how to unravel them.
KNEE PAIN WORKSHOP – 16th August 2018
I’m presuming you have knee pain if you are looking at this workshop!?
I’m also presuming you have tried multiple treatments to get out of knee pain and maybe the problem still persists?
Do you have to wear a knee support during sport or walking?
Maybe you have had knee surgery and you still have knee pain!
Have you been told that you need to stretch muscles, foam roll muscles, strengthen glutes, strengthen core – maybe bad posture has been blamed for your knee issues…..??
I’m not going to tell you to do any of these things.
I’m going to talk about the 206 bones you have in your body. I.e your skeleton.
I am going to hopefully open your eyes to the potential that you might be treating the wrong area of the body. When you look at how the whole skeleton moves – we can then start to see, joint by joint how each bone impacts on the next.
Your knee has a big bone above it (femur), and 2 bones directly below it (tib and fib) – what influences theses bones, and what happens when these bones are not moving as they should?
The main areas we will be looking at will be the foot / hip and pelvis relationship.
BE WARNED – This is an INTERACTIVE workshop. Yeah sure, you will be sat listening, but you will also be taking part in moving and experiencing how your joints move. There will also be time for questions on anything BODY related at the end – You can ask me ANYTHING!
I’m not here to try and ‘fix’ all your knee issues – i’m here to bring alive the knee mechanics, offer a fresh perspective and hopefully draw your attention away from old skool methods of treatment that might not be getting you any closer to solving the problem.
Only 20 People Max for this workshop.
