Richard Brown, MD
Three thousand years ago, yogis in India realized that the strength of abdominal and pelvic muscle tissue correlated with longevity and vitality. Weakness of these abdominal muscles and fascia is associated with bladder and bowel issues, pelvic problems, sexual dysfunction, poor posture, and more. Age, damage to the internal organs through childbirth or surgery, cancer treatment, or other trauma weaken this area of the body. We will use yoga and qigong postures, coherent breathing, pelvic contraction and relaxation, and visualization to energize the base of the spine and sacral areas, the reservoir of physical vitality. Participants will leave with an energizing and revitalizing program to practice at home.
