The pelvic floor is composed of three layers of muscles that run horizontally between your ischial tuberosity (sit bones) and vertically between your pubic bone (front) and coccyx or tailbone (back).
The pelvic floor is responsible for supporting organs, the functionality of bladder and bowels, and allows painless release and insertion.
It is important to maintain a balanced pelvic floor. Think of your pelvic floor like a trampoline - this area should be toned and stable, yet flexible and provides give. If the pelvic floor is too tight it may cause pain, or if too weak, it may cause prolapsed organs or incontinence.
If having any issues a pelvic floor therapist may provide a diagnose. Yoga poses and breathwork may also assist in correcting issues and maintaining a healthy pelvic floor.
