Hands up who ACTUALLY does their KEGELS?
I think that pelvic floor exercises like kegels are one of those things that as women, we all know we 'should' be doing… But we might not be.
Or, like a lot of women who get in touch with me, you might be doing them, but be unsure if you’re doing it right.
I have my own perspectives on pelvic floor exercises, as thankfully, they’ve always been part of my Tantra practice. In Tantra, we use pelvic floor exercises to help us BALANCE our lower chakras, CONNECT to and cultivate sexual energy and increase our PLEASURE during sex.
But, I wanted to get the low-down from someone who’s studied from a western perspective in this area too.
In this episode of Wholehearted, I’m talking to women’s Pelvic Floor physiotherapist, Anna Scammell, from The Whole Mother.
In this episode, you’ll hear:
- Exactly how we should be doing our kegel exercises according to an expert
- How we can tell if we’re doing them right or not
- The different ways we should take care of our pelvic floor before, during and after pregnancy - and why this matters even if we’re not planning on having kids.
- And you’ll also get Anna’s perspective on Vaginal eggs AND being able to weight lift coconuts!
LISTEN to the full episode THEN pass it onto your girlfriends, 'cause they need to hear this too!
