About Sarah Louisignau, E-RYT and Pelvic Empowerment
Sarah was certified in Pelvic Floor Health and Empowerment by Leslie Howard, PF Goddess, in New York City, May 2012. Sarah teaches workshops for women in groups of any size about the Female Pelvis & PF. She teaches that, as women, we have the unique power of creativity in our pelvises. We bring life into being, and through our root build foundations for a healthy relationship to ourselves, our families and our communities. The female pelvis and hips are a pandora's box for many women, sometimes with conflicting emotions like strength and vulnerability, creativity and criticism, pleasure and pain. This dynamic part of our anatomy is often stigmatized, objectified and culturally misunderstood. Many women have issues due to age, lifestyle, bearing children, pelvic trauma or hereditary tendencies.
Proper work of strengthening, stabilizing, stretching and softening the pelvic floor helps to create the correct foundation of each movement in the body. Imagine that the torso is a grocery bag full of your organs; the pelvic floor is the bottom of the grocery bag, holding everything else up! A strong pelvic floor is also a flexible pelvic floor. The pelvic floor is known as the body's third diaphragm, and should respond to inhalation with a slight relaxation downward and to exhalation with a slight retreat upward.
While over 50% of women deal with incontinence or pelvic pain of some kind, what is less known is that 20-25% of women experience a chronic gripping of the pelvic floor muscles, called Hypertonic Pelvic Floor. This condition could be caused in early age as a result of a fall or car accident, sexual abuse or trauma.
A workshop with me will help you identify whether you are lacking tone or have too much tone in your pelvic floor muscles, and how to approach a non-surgical solution! Three hours can be life changing if anyone is dealing with problems of the pelvis or pelvic floor that cause lack of sensation during intercourse, pain during intercourse, stress incontinence, urge incontinence, prolapsed organs, or hysterectomy related issues. These workshops are important even if women are not experiencing issues currently, as a form of prevention and education. Many of us are in denial or experience shame due to the cultural stigmas surrounding female sexuality. Let's break free together!
Viva la Pelvis!
