Cultivating a healthy pelvis — Forrest Yoga CET
10-15 May, 2023
Online training (space for a small group to come to France if desired!)
Castelnau-Magnoac, 65230, FRANCE
Well over half of the people with vulva anatomy that come to your yoga classes will experience some kind of pelvic issue. If we include pregnancy and postpartum care as part of that statistic, the numbers are higher. This CET is a fantastic opportunity to get acquainted with the “mysteries” of the pelvis from a Forrest Yoga perspective. You will learn how to support your students as their pelvic anatomy goes through biomechanical, biochemical, emotional and even surgical changes during their life.
We’ll focus on these key areas of pelvic health:
~ How to use Forrest Yoga to aid conception.
~ How to modify Forrest Yoga for pregnancy and postpartum rehabilitation.
~ Building longevity and optimal pelvic health throughout life.
And importantly, you'll learn that many of the fundamentals of Forrest Yoga are extremely helpful for pelvic health and the reasons why.
~ Ceremony, meditation and a pelvic-centric Forrest Yoga/Forrest Yoga Inspired practice each day.
~ Sequencing & poses and pose modifications for conception, pregnancy, postpartum rehabilitation, pelvic injuries/surgeries (prolapse, hysterectomy, appendectomy, episiotomy, caesarean etc)
~ Basic pelvic anatomy via somatic practices
~ Insights into non-invasive holistic practices for pelvic health
~ Hands on assists and hands on bodywork for pelvic health
WHO IS THE COURSE FOR?
— Yoga teachers who teach people with vulvas and vulva owners. This course is particularly great for teachers whose students have reached or are approaching menopause, who have experienced organ prolapse, incontinence, surgery that affects the pelvic floor (including hysterectomy and cesarean) and those who have a difficult relationship with feeling grounded or sensual.
— Yoga teachers working towards their 300/500hr Forrest Yoga certification. This course is a total of 31 hours.

YOUR BIOMAGICKAL PELVIS: Delving into the Mystery
DATES COMING SOON
Is your pelvis one of the most mysterious parts of your body? Do you know much about your pelvic anatomy?..... Read on...
Biomechanically, the pelvis is the connection between legs and the upper body. With the boney pelvis lies a plethora of different engorgeable tissues, fed by nerves and veins. There is a canopy of muscles tendons and ligaments that form the pelvic floor. Key structural muscles (the ones that enable us to stand/move) including the psoas, the rectus abdominus, the transverse abdominals, to name a few, all have an intimate relationship with the mechanics and health of the pelvis. The path of elimination (pee and poop) moves through our pelvis. This area of our body is a pretty big deal!
Biochemically, pelvic health is impacted by food, hormones, biomechanics, the ability/inability to down-regulate the nervous system.
When we build awareness of the pelvic area and bring biomechanics and biochemistry into optimal well-being we are more able to access and harness the power of the pelvis — its Biomagick.
In this 4-part course taught over 2 weeks, we’ll begin to explore and….
~ delve into the anatomy of the pelvis through group learning and personal exploration
~ discover why a healthy nervous system is integral to pelvic health
~ embark on an internal journey to magick, wisdom and healing
~ share ritual and ceremony
This course uses the most up-to-date anatomical information.
WHO IS THE COURSE FOR?
This course is for vulva owners who want to feel more empowered, know more about their own anatomy, want/need to take true ownership of their body, build self advocacy, develop a relationship with their sensual self.
*Tiered pricing is in place for this training to make it more accessible. If you want to take this course and money is an issue, let's talk!
