This dedicated foundational training teaches students how to effectively release restrictions that are present in the body's physical and energetic level, reprogram the body's holding patterns and increase health on a cellular level. Pelvic floor release is a treatment for dissolving tension in the pelvic floor muscles, fascia and other blockages in the area. When the energy is blocked in the root, either by physical tension, emotional burden, past trauma, patterns or habits since long time, it inhibits the energy flow in the whole body. In this training you will learn you how to treat the pelvic floor both externally and internally (threw vagina or anus), give feedback on whether the muscles are too tight or too weak as well as specific exercise suggestions. The quality of energy flow in the pelvic floor impacts our overall vibrancy. When you understand how to utilize this system, you can transform and cultivate the flow of energy. Building the physical strength of the pelvic muscles builds core stability in the root and grounding in the body. The ability to relax will increase our sensitivity and alertness to our life force energy. It is our root to wisdom, creativity, pleasure and trust in life.
