Not a lot of mamas realize that pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock, and wrap all around the backside of the body.
This means that there are many different ways to strengthen the pelvic floor beyond Kegels!
In my last Postnatal blog post, I described how to strengthen your pelvic floor in Bridge Pose.
One of my other favorite poses that I like to teach in my Postnatal classes is Baddha Konasana, also known as Butterfly Pose.
Head on over to East Side Yoga to see how exactly you can receive the pelvic floor strengthening benefit of this pose.
