Today’s post is one of my very favorite basic sequences for facilitating pelvic floor awareness and pelvic mobility. These motions may seem simple, but are often not easy! The cues for connection to the breath with fine tuned pelvic movement combined with pelvic floor dropping (relaxation) and activation often challenge patients. This is as much as a coordination exercise as it is therapeutic mobility and gentle core activation. You can use these exercises for strengthening the transverse abdominus and pelvic floor with extra attention on the exhales or you can use these movements to facilitate more sensory awareness by just noticing and breathing and feeling what the movement feels like in your body. Enjoy whichever way you choose to approach this exercise and as always… if you’re not sure this is for you check in with your doc or pelvic floor PT.
