Postnatal Yoga - Pelvic Floor Strengthening Tip

So many new mamas are interested in restoring strength to their pelvic floor after birth. There are a lot of great exercises that I teach in the ESY Postnatal Yoga class, and here is an exercise that you can do at home - you can even place baby on your belly, to give them some tummy time while you strengthen. :-)

 

Lay down on your back (this is when you would place baby on your tummy), and bring the heels as close to your butt as possible.

 

Then place a block between your thighs and SQUEEZE!

 

The squeezing action activates the groin and pelvic floor muscles. Just make sure that you ensure a quality RELEASE after the squeeze. Just like any other muscle in the body, pelvic floor muscles benefit from both strengthening and releasing.

 

Give it a try and let me know what you think!
