2. Core Concepts and Anatomy
Explain how physical and mental habits impact health and function, apply the concept of mindfulness to therapeutic practice, apply the Weber-Fechner law to therapeutic practice, and contrast a structural intervention to a functional movement intervention.
3. Pelvic Movements and Pelvic Clock
Describe common movements of the pelvic bony structure, guide clients to experience movements of the pelvic bony structure, explain the benefits of the pelvic clock, and use the pelvic clock as a therapeutic intervention.
4. Pelvic Breath II
Perform a second pelvic breath lab, which involves a sensory “snapshot” of body and breath, allowing breath to happen below the rib cage, and a bladder-lung image (hammock, balloon).
5. Breath Lecture and Conclusion
Understand pelvic floor and spinal mechanics involved in respiration. Explain benefits of a lower breathing pattern and identify the possible causes of chest breathing.

We are pleased to announce our first web-based workshop (webinar) that we produced in partnership with Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute & Medbridge education!
In this first course of a 3 part series, the online participant will learn low-tech, non-invasive techniques to address pelvic floor dysfunction that draw from Yoga, Tai Chi, Qigong, Feldenkrais and conventional rehab therapies, to guide clients toward improved health and function. Part A lays the foundation for the series by covering anatomy, core concepts related to “habits of the mind,” and the physiology of breathing as it relates to the pelvic floor. Throughout each course in this series, Bill and Richard will walk you through various exercises to perform at home, in order to better prepare you to guide your own clients, students and patients through the same exercises & practices in your setting of care.
