About the Class
This specialized fitness class provides general exercise that can help to correct the symptoms of stress and urge incontinence. Even if incontinence is not severely impacting your life you may want to try this community class that takes you through progression of exercises to help correct milder forms of incontinence. It also provides an opportunity to talk with a physical therapist to discuss if pelvic health therapy is the right track for you or if you should see your primary care physician or possibly a urologist.
The class is low intensity at first (more like yoga) and becomes more functional and energetic toward the end of the eight-week class series.
In addition to strengthening underused pelvic floor muscles, the class provides simple educational tips and materials about topics ranging from dietary modifications to hygiene that can lead for better pelvic and bladder health.
- Better bladder control
- Stronger pelvic core and flatter abs
- Improved sexual health
