Pelvic Health Workshop @ Balu Yoga & Wellness
Oct 21 @ 12:30 pm – 3:30 pm

with Kristie Norquay


Kristie is a Physio + Yoga Therapist with a special interest in pelvic health and pain science. Come spend the afternoon learning, breathing, exercising (gently) and creating a safe, supportive space to ask questions and discuss all things pelvic health related.

Ladies, it’s time to take charge of our health! There are so many things we haven’t been taught, don’t know, or wonder about. Gain the knowledge and support to give your body what it needs in any stage of life. Whether you are in your 20’s, 40’s, 60’s or beyond, it’s never too late! You can start taking positive action steps right now!

In this workshop Kristie will help you:
Gain the knowledge and support you need to give your body what it needs and take positive action steps at any stage in life.

Make movement feel good again; regain mobility and strength and move with more ease. Improve your deep core muscle system. If you have back pain, hip pain, pelvic pain, a weak core, or you avoid movement because of bladder or bowel issues – this is the class for you!

Make calm your new normal; reverse the effects of stress in your life. Move towards a mind that is quiet and clear. Understand your nervous system and how stress plays a role in your pelvic health. Learn the importance of breathing properly and reduce tension – Kristie will tell you in this workshop!! Hint: It plays a big role. Let’s chill out!

Kristie is also happy to discuss and answer questions (as best she can) related to pelvic health. Peeing, pooping, sex, pregnancy, post-partum, pain, tension, weakness, prolapse, kegels…it’s all fair game!
