We can not emphasise enough how the pelvic floor does not work in isolation, but rather in conjunction with your whole body. Your pelvic floor should contract as you go onto your tippy toes while walking, a mild activation should occur with every breath out that you take, as well as a light relaxation and lowering as you breathe in. It supports your pelvic and abdominal musculature in conjunction with your abdominal muscles and thoracic diaphragm. We will explore these concepts together so you can maximise your pelvic floor health and function to assist in your whole well-being.
