637. Wednesday Q&A: The Pelvic Floor Episode!

Mar 8, 2023


Welcome to Wednesday Q&A, where you ask questions and we answer them!


In this Wednesday Q&A, we answer your questions about the pelvic floor. 


Your questions:

  • How does prolonged sitting and poor posture impact the pelvic floor muscles and pelvic health?
  • Can you explain the difference between a tight, high-tone pelvic floor and a strong pelvic floor? What are the options to decrease tightness or tone? What do you do if you always feel some tension in the pelvic floor? 
  • How does breathing affect the pelvic floor? Is pranayama part of LYT? 
  • Sometimes my anal region spasms for 30 minutes. Why? 
  • How much do the proximal hamstrings affect the pelvic floor?
  • How do you find neutral pelvis when you’re constantly tight in other areas with poor posture and muscle tone?
  • What’s your take on pelvic floor engagement/training during pregnancy? How can you feel if your pelvic floor is too engaged?
