Incontinence will affect most women during their lifetime, but that doesn’t mean we need to accept this as the norm, or the decreased quality of life that accompanies it. Female anatomy, childbirth, and aging are not insurmountable risk factors, and studies show that a simple intervention of education and yoga can reduce the frequency of leaks by 70%! Catherine has found that an individualized approach yields even better success rates, and can be easily incorporated into a yogic lifestyle. Join her to learn about the most common types of leakage and the specific practices that improve bladder function and restore a sense of safety and support at the root.
