How to Keep Your Pelvic Floor Healthy

Kegel exercises have become hugely popular in recent years, with celebrities like Kourtney Kardashian and Gwyneth Paltrow touting the benefits of “Kegel boxing” and jade egg exercises. Though this might seem like just another passing trend, the truth is that developing a strong pelvic floor can help both women and men counteract incontinence, or involuntary urination. The pelvic floor is a bowl-shaped set of muscles that sits at the bottom of the pelvis, supporting the bladder and sex organs. As most muscles do, the pelvic floor naturally weakens as we age, and this can be compounded by pregnancy and childbirth. In order to make sure your pelvic floor stays strong, take a look at the guide from Rory below for pelvic floor exercise instructions along with breathing practices.
