The muscles of the ‘pelvic floor’ are not core muscles but they are just as important!
This area of the body is particularly challenging to understand and work with both as a student and a teacher – the deep muscles at the base of, and inside of, your pelvis.
Here, one of our better Pilates instructors puts an end to the mystery, describing clearly, simply and briefly (the way we like it!) what problems may arise and the best corrective Pilates exercises.
And to my great surprise, she explains why Kegel exercises are not necessary and may even cause problems! This was total news to me!
By the way, this article is over at PilatesIntel, the best Pilates blog in the universe – no kidding! Well worth signing up for the weekly post.
Take a look!
