Pelvic Floor Connection with Overhead Reach

Now that you know how your alignment, core and breathing all impact your pelvic floor, we are going to pull all those pieces together into a pelvic floor activation exercise. This overhead reach exercise can start simple and become a bit more complex as you progress. You will feel it more in your lower tummy (where the pelvic diaphragm is) and not as much between your legs. Remember, there are deep internal parts of the pelvic floor that need attention often more than the superficial parts that we are told to squeeze and pulse. Let's try something new and see how it goes!

Add a stretch to your routine. Try this stretch/activation exercise sitting at your desk a few times a day. Take a moment to connect to that lifted and elongated feeling. Allow it to reset your connection and alignment.
