Yoga, Meditation and Mindfulness

Current evidence-based research on yoga, meditation, and mindfulness for urinary incontinence, urgency, pelvic organ prolapse, constipation,

IBS, osteoporosis, menopause, and pelvic pain will be

presented in a retreat setting.

 

This interactive course will give clinicians

the skills in yoga and mindfulness

practice to return to the clinic and

implement treatment and exercise

prescriptions for specific

pelvic health conditions. 

Course Content

Content will include detailed examples of yoga

poses specific to clinical diagnosis with

modifications and contraindications.

 

Yoga and meditation will be interwoven

throughout the course to allow

health benefits of both and gain

skills for returning to the clinic.
