Re: “Floor Model

Congratulations on your empowering classes Leslie and drawing attention to a major health care problem no one wants to talk about . Pelvic floor dysfunction has a high personal cost to women and last year cost $26 Billion in North America. Your classes obviously take the time to let women identify how their pelvic floor muscles work - so many practice Kegels incorrectly and keep reinforcing an incorrect action. If women are taught to train their abdominals in isolation (sit ups), it may lead to incoordination between core and outer abdominals, causing PF muscle dysfunction.
Lets keep talking about the pelvic floor until the stigma and mystery is removed and women freely share correct information about these amazing muscles which control continence, assist with spinal support and sexual sensation.
