5 minute Pelvic Floor Routine

This will just take 5 minutes.  I promise.

1. Begin by breathing more mindfully. Once you have a nice rhythm, begin contracting your pelvic floor each time you exhale. Do this 5 times.

Cues that might work for you:
Imagine you are trying not to pee
Imagine you are trying not to fart
Drink a milk shake through a straw with your vagina (Got that one from a client) 

2. Stand up. Engage your pelvic floor. Breathe. Squat down. Stand up. Release your pelvic floor. Did you feel a difference when you released it or did the contraction fade already. Keep trying until you can feel a difference. Do this 5 times.

3. Repeat 1 & 2

Done!  Good for you.
