Training the pelvic floor muscles during pregnancy, in the immediate post-partum period and during sports should involve a multi-system approach. For over a decade, when I rehab the pelvic floor and core muscles I work within the muscular, fascial, respiratory and nervous systems. There are two exercises that I feel are multi-system exercises that not only balance the pelvic floor muscles, but also strengthen the core, the back and provides great stability for the pregnant women.
Yoni Eggs (aka Jade Eggs) have suddenly caught wild-fire and have made it to late night TV with Regina Hall & Conan O’Brien. Her enthusiasm is awesome, his surprise fantastic, but the sad fact remains that she was poorly trained & shared some possibly detrimental ideas. Before you go ahead & just pop a yoni egg in, you need to know how to properly use it or you may be exercising yourself into a pelvic or orgasmic dysfunction. Yet along with this amazing evidence that more and more women desire to claim their pleasure and sexual vitality comes the sad fact that this profound practice is being diluted into “drive-thru Jade Egg practice” aka the McEgg movement.
