Pelvic Floor Tone and Posture | What’s the connection?

Did you know that how you stand affects the tone of your pelvic floor?

If you want to feel better in about your body,  improve butt and pelvic floor tone as well as reduce lower back pain, you need to start with the essentials.

This is your postural alignment homework which will directly benefit your pelvic floor tone.

Back up

That means, when you’re standing, your weight should be through your heels, not the balls of your feet. You should be able to lift your toes and your butt should curve out. I’ve said it before: don’t tuck your tailbone! That doesn’t mean you let your tummy hang out though! Draw belly button through to spine, but do it without moving your pelvis.

Keep checking yourself as you’re standing – weight on the front of your feet? Rock back!

PS: you won’t be able to do this if you’re wearing shoes with any heel at all… so take your shoes off!

When you’ve got that, try finding your abdominal muscles.

Gently drawing in your abs may mean your pelvis moves, effectively tucking your butt. Try it again without thrusting your hips! Stand side-on to the mirror to check. Weight should be through your heels, tension out of your knees, butt free and unclenched.

Hi Bina. You need to speak with a medical professional who can properly diagnose you and discuss treatment for you individual case. First and foremost speak with your doctor about this.

well, wearing negative heels helps. I do have several pair of those shoes (different styles)…or step barefoot in the sand and sink in the heels.

Omg! I just tried this and that stance looks so much better than what I’ve been doing for the last 20 years! It’s going to take work for me though because it engaged some lower back muscles that I don’t normally use. I love it! Thanks!
