Currently in the US, 1 in 5 women will have surgery to repair a pelvic organ prolapse, and yet it isn’t standard practice to screen for, or educate, women about this condition. Studies show that POP can be prevented or even reversed with simple exercise, breath, and movement strategies, and woman deserve this information before their bladder, uterus, or rectum is falling out of their body. Women don’t need to spend their remaining days in a headstand to slow the effect of gravity on pelvic organs... join Catherine to explore options for postures, pranayama and pessaries to keep your parts in place!
