The muscles at the base of your pelvis form the “sling” that supports internal organs such as the bladder and bowel.

These muscles assist with urinary control, continence, and sexual function. Maintaining a healthy pelvic floor can help reduce the risk of vaginal and rectal prolapse and support recovery after childbirth or prostate surgery.

Personal trainer Amy Biddle will lead this class on August 19 at noon. The class is for anyone who wants to keep their pelvic floor strong or improve pelvic floor strength. According to the Mayo Clinic, “Exercising these muscles can be important to prevent leaking, help with support and decrease pain.”

Anyone with concerns related to their pelvic floor should consult with their doctor.

This class is free and open to the public.
