A self-study workshop that fits into your schedule...
Recovery • Strength • Prevention
Do you (or someone you know) live with urinary incontinence (involuntary leakage of urine)? Most women are too embarrassed to talk about it, don’t know that help exists, or think that it’s a natural part of pregnancy, menopause or aging. Incontinence is treatable with exercise! All you need to do is strengthen the pelvic floor; I can show you how.
Dr. Arnold Kegel first described the importance of pelvic floor exercise in the 1940s. Since then we have learned that the pelvic floor naturally responds to movement and that certain movements create stronger pelvic floor contractions than Kegel exercises.
Bladder control is usually a fitness issue and deserves a fitness solution! Pfilates is a method of pelvic floor rehabilitation that uses the most effective Pilates, Yoga, and Personal training movements to condition the pelvic floor, as well as toning the thighs and buttocks.
Rhona, I have been really getting a lot out of the classes you share. I am slowly making my way through them, but I wanted send out some gratitude today. I have been practicing the kegels while I stand & walk. Your description of the lungs & engaging up from the pelvic floor as I breathe out just clicked with me.
When I used the bladder tracker, I marked down getting up 3 times during the night to use the washroom. This was average for me (it would disrupt my sleep and be a nuisance for my partner -who is a very light sleeper). I was like that for years and I always attributed it to taking a specific medication that requires me to drink more fluids than the average person. I believed that I would just have to live with the side effects of needing more water & therefor have to expel it more often.
I hadn't considered it might be a bladder problem. I have noticed I have been getting up less and less since watching the Pfilates workshop & the last few nights I have slept all the night through. I believe this is my new normal. YAY!
Thank you so much!

"Thank you for a great workshop; it was really informative! Lately I was getting worried as I was having to get up, sometimes up to five (seldom but..) times at night to go to the washroom! After the workshop, I started doing the Kegels as you taught us - which I had totally forgotten about - and immediately it worked! Last night, no getting up at all!!
After seeing all the possible circumstances of what will/could happen, it's so scary... Since yesterday, I have been doing the Kegels while doing whatever... And today, I did some of the yoga poses you showed us. What a relief! I was picturing myself soon having to buy diapers or staying stuck at home. Thank you again Rhona"!
