This Feldenkrais® continuing education program will cover what you need to know to comfortably include pelvic floor function in Awareness Through Movement® and Functional IntegrationSM. You will apply principles of the method to discover how the pelvic floor is involved in action for both men and women. Your male and female clients with a history of back or pelvic pain, incontinence, hip replacements, childbearing, abdominal surgeries, prostate problems or surgery, as well as dancers, equestrians, and other performers, will benefit from this work.

Some of the benefits include improvement in:
-bladder control
-emotional and sexual expression.

The teaching will include relevant functional anatomy, physiology and research evidence to lay the groundwork to creatively meet the needs of your students. Find out how to teach this material to groups. Practitioners can also enjoy personal benefit as well.
