Thank you Shannon, breathing with you was empowering. After having my three babies I've lost awareness of my pelvic floor lol. I am glad I am learning how to feel it again. Thank you!!

I'm friends with an online yoga star! You are amazing! Such a great presence, and wonderful information!
Ha ha Stephanie -- I am certainly not a yoga star...well anymore than any other yoga teacher out there sharing yoga! Thanks for your comment and for practicing with me!
Thank you for this Shannon! I attended a short pelvic floor workshop a year ago (my first exposure to anything pelvic floor!) and it was overwhelming and confusing. I just had baby #3 and know I need to make this a priority and this first video felt like a great start and a "breath of fresh air." I am looking forward to the next videos and working on this.
So glad to hear that this worked so well for you Amanda Runia! It was 9 years after my baby #3 that I started to learn about the core 4 and my pelvic floor, so it is great that you are learning this now. Let me know if you have any questions.

Can this be done with prenatal moms?
Great question Janene - Yes! This is a great practice for both prenatal and postnatal moms.

As a side note - during pregnancy breath practices that are contraindicated are ones that are really heated or vigorous or that involve breath retention.
