Physio Restore Workshops
Sydney Pelvic Clinic Physiotherapist and mother of three Felicity de Blic has brought together her knowledge from the worlds of physiotherapy, yoga and meditation, and psychology to create our Physio Restore Workshop Series. Physio Restore is a unique workshop that dives into pelvic awareness and alignment, and nervous system regulation, with the goal of creating wellness and ease in body and mind.
Physio Restore is available in three formats:
Physio Restore for Pelvic Tension
This 90-minute workshop incorporates movement, breathing, meditation and relaxation-based practices to address pelvic tension and its symptoms. The workshop also includes written and audio resources to support home practice.
Combining knowledge from physiotherapy, yoga and meditation, and psychology, our Physio Restore for Pelvic Tension workshops are a must for those seeking ways to address the multidimensional aspects of pelvic tension and its symptoms. Anatomical, physiological and psychological influences pelvic tension, and every person’s experience will be unique. Physio Restore includes gentle movement and breathing practices, supported postures, meditation and deep relaxation to tap into each of these components.
A key theme of the workshop is unwinding the stress response and building flexibility within the nervous system. This helps to break the cycle of stress creating more muscle tension and pain. Mindfulness principles in working with painful sensation will also be explored, to help us soften the nervous system’s sensitivity to pain.
Participants will receive two MP3 recordings of Physio Restore practices and a written posture guide to assist you to effortlessly incorporate it into your weekly self-care routine.
