Pilates for Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

About The Class

Have you noticed the Pelvic floor is a little less able to do its job than it used to? Coughing, sneezing, and not able to stop a little leakage. This can happen for any number of reasons. Multiple births, your job, an injury to the sacrum, breathing problems, age. Even back pain and posture can and probably will have an impact on pelvic floor function. Men and women are affected, and many do not seek help and do not like to talk about it? Some of you may not have to put up with this. Would you like to put some integrity and tone back into this hidden and little talked about sheath of muscles.

Factors to consider why our pelvic floor weakens

1 Age
2 Obesity
3 Weak muscles
4 Multiple births inc cesarian
5 Sitting at a desk (office job)
6 Poor exercise technique
7 Gravity
8 Lifting weights
9 Poor posture
10 Back pain

Testimonials

After a 'taster' session of the exercises for the pelvic floor in Pilates I found the next day that my abs had reacted to the exercises without actually being engaged in any of the movements. Another bonus was, I'd had a bit of a niggly back pain for a few weeks, but after the session it had gone. Obviously a worthwhile addition to the range of Pilates exercises. - Pat Williams
A dose of bronchitis 2 years ago made me aware that many years of being overweight and sitting at a desk had weakened my pelvic floor. No classes were available at the time to show how to strengthen it, however Helen's Diamond Pilates course has addressed this and after only 4 weeks I have noticed an improvement in tone and control. The exercises are easy to do and can easily be fitted into daily life. - Linda Hughs
I have now completed week 4 of the pelvic floor Pilates course. The benefits are becoming evident in my daily life. I am aware of the muscle tone the exercises have created and the increased control it has given me. - Keith
