3 Contact Hours

This workshop is designed for yoga students and instructors of all levels. This workshop can be used as continuing education, and also counts towards Yoga Baum’s 300-Hour Yoga Teacher Training.

Julie Sergent, Doctor of Physical Therapy, and Stephanie Seeley, ReIntegration Specialist, are returning to our studio to teach part II of their Productive Postures Series. This time around, attendees will learn all about the low back, hips, and pelvic floor. Attendees will learn how they all connect to create the foundation to our every move. Learn what it means to assume a neutral spine and stable core and how this alone can impact yoga practice, strength training, and even the simplest tasks like playing on the floor or carrying your little ones. This interactive workshop will leave attendees with take home strategies to prevent and manage common  conditions of the low back, hip, and pelvic floor. This workshop is appropriate for anyone currently experiencing back/hip/or pelvic injury or has in the past. Dr. Julie and Stephanie will begin with the core foundations and progress through common positions we all assume both in and out of the studio. We will also explore the following topics: 

  • Brief overview of lumbosacral, hip, and pelvic floor anatomy 

  • Explore the signs and symptoms of the most common conditions/diagnoses of the lower back and hip 

  • Discuss pelvic floor dysfunction, common presentation, and treatment methods including urinary stress incontinence, urge incontinence, and more

  • Learn how to self regulate activity to allow continued safe participation in desired activities

  • Explore the concepts of mobility, strength, and stability and apply each to your body’s individual needs

  • Enhance overall body awareness and postural alignment 

  • Preserve the health of your low back, hips, and pelvic floor 

  • Learn ways to increase static and dynamic core strength to target low back, pelvis, and hip

  • Gain awareness of the do's and don’ts when it comes to acute low back and pelvic pain

  • How to balance external/environmental factors and occupational stressors

  • Sitting vs. Standing and how to create productive postures throughout our day
