    Yoga for the Pelvic Floor with Susan McCormick

    Shedding a light on the structure, function/dysfunction and ongoing health of the pelvic floor is the focus of this yoga series for women hosted by the WHRC. Issues such as prolapse, incontinence and pelvic pain will be addressed. Through yoga and mindfulness, learn to identify, isolate, strengthen and relax the muscles that span the opening at the base of the pelvis. Increase your overall sense of physical and emotional well-being through the practice of yoga for the pelvic floor. Our instructor, Susan McCormick, was the lead teacher of a recent yoga and incontinence study at UCSF. The pilot for this study, using the same yoga curriculum, yielded a 70% improvement in incontinence symptoms. 2017 start dates: 6/28 (skip 7/5); 8/16; 9/27; 11/8 (skip 11/22). No drop-ins.

    Speaker/Lecturer
    Susan McCormick Pelvic Floor Yoga
    California Pacific Medical Center

    Susan McCormick has been practicing yoga for the past 20 years and teaching since 2008 after completing the advanced studies training with Tony Briggs. She is currently in the Iyengar certification training program and studies regularly with senior Iyengar teacher, Manouso Manos. Her interest in strengthening her pelvic floor to avoid surgery led her to seek out experts in the fields of physical therapy and pelvic floor yoga. She received teacher training and certification to teach pelvic floor work from yoga teacher, Leslie Howard, and is an instructor for UCSF?s ongoing study on incontinence and yoga. The pilot for this study, using the same yoga curriculum, yielded a 70% improvement in incontinence symptoms. Empowering women who are struggling with the effects of pelvic floor dysfunction is important to her and evident in her gentle but firm manner of teaching.
