#010: Demystifying the Pelvic Floor with Erin McDonald


The pelvis is a part of our body that remains a mystery for many of us.

We’re taught to ignore this area because it’s thought to be dirty or just not important.

But what happens when something goes wrong?

What happens when we reconnect?

What is normal when it comes to pelvic floor health?

Today’s guest, Erin McDonald, speaks the truth about growing up being a “good girl” and how connecting to the pelvis can transform your life.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • What pelvic floor health means and getting to know yourself

  • How the grief of our losses lay deep inside our pelvis and how to begin to connect to this area and then release

  • How injured intuition and being trained to be the “good girl” sets women up for dismissing who they truly are

  • How to begin checking in with your body and create a deeper relationship with yourself and your root wisdom held within your pelvis

This episode is sponsored by my upcoming 8-Week Yoga Therapy for Depression series beginning in January. If you’re ready to try a new, holistic approach to address the root cause of your chronic pain, anxiety, depression or habitual patterns that you’re ready to let go…and finally get back to living the life you desire, you’ll want to join me for this incredible program using yoga, pranayama, meditation and chakra balancing.
