This class was so perfect. I've had trouble engaging my pelvic floor muscles since having an emergency cesarean birth 18 years ago! I will bookmark this class and return to it again and again, and I look forward to incorporating these skills into my practice. Thank you so much! Namaste.

Love this class!

This was so helpful for me. You made it easy for me to understand just how to activate the core. I just was not doing it properly until this class. This can be overlooked and it is so important and it certainly made balancing a breeze for me. Melissa, thank you. I enjoy your calm, smoothe presentation. The music is beautiful too.

Thank you for your guidance

That was lovely, Melissa. It was a great way to be reminded of my pelvic floor.
I'm going to get my man to do this class with me - so he can 'get it' from the male perspective too. The men need to know for themselves!

Like many women, I need that deep core connection to assist with pelvic stability, especially in asymmetrical poses. This gentle practice reminds me of how steady and balanced I am when my pelvic floor and transverse abdominals are engaged. Thank you, Melissa, for such skilled instruction and your calm, soothing voice.
