Cue the confetti and open the champagne because this month, Claire is celebrating 7 years of freedom from teaching those traditional pelvic floor exercises called "Kegels"! Invented in the 1940's, Kegels are known as the "go-to" exercise in more industries than you think (not just pelvic floor health), and you might appreciate that it's somewhat hard to go it alone in this sea of Kegels, but Pelvic Floor Expert Claire has managed to do it successfully now for more than half a decade. Join Claire in this honest and candid episode where she highlights 1) why she stopped teaching Kegels and what exercises she prescribes instead, 2) whether she ever regrets making the decision to takes Kegels out of her repertoire, 3) what research exists for and against Kegels (and why it's somewhat contradictory), 4) whether it's appropriate to teach Kegels AND the full-body approach at the same time, 5) what benefits her clients have gained from her non-traditional approach, and 6) finally a truly honest account of some of her experiences of (unsuccessfully) teaching the Kegel in a group exercise setting. Do you want to know if it's possible to help treat clients with pelvic floor dysfunction without prescribing Kegels? Well, tune in to this week's episode to find out!
