Der Tänzer und Bewegungspädagoge Eric Franklin hat Elemente des integralen Yoga, Formen des Tanzes und die asiatische Vorstellung von der Lebensenergie Qi zu einer eigenen Trainingsmethode kombiniert. Der Autor will Bewegung, Vorstellungskraft und Körperbewusstsein miteinander verbinden, um Männer und Frauen zu regelmäßigen Beckenboden-Training anzuregen. Voraussetzung für die Stärkung jeder Muskelgruppe ist nach Franklin die Wahrnehmung dieser Muskelgruppe. Mit eingängigen Skizzen unterstützt d ...more

I am studying this book and drawing pictures and doing the exercises, maybe with more fervor than any anatomy student, since the 'test' involves my own pelvic floor and the saggy organs therein. I want to know why and how I might be able to feel more and maybe influence more what is happening. Did I ever know how the kidneys and bladder are so intimately connected..."every 45 minutes the kidneys filter all our blood, distribute hormones and modulate the chemical composition of blood." (p. 84) I' ...more

This book is excellent. If you are working on a specific physical condition, it's fantastic. I used it during a troublesome pregnancy. Even if you aren't managing a condition, the concepts are great for maintaining form. For someone familiar with Pilates, this approach goes hand-in-hand. The use of imagery is very easy to do, and with much less stress than comes with physical therapy or other methods of muscle isolation. The only thing that could be better than this book is if Franklin, himself, ...more

There are times when it is difficult to understand the book. The instructions can be as convoluted as the systems in the body, but once you figure them out they work very well. I have a greater feeling of wellness and better understanding of my body. I am more in tune with the interconnectedness of the body and have more to integrate into my yoga classes. It is better than the cover, even. I recommend it

A great book for men and women that want to discover their pelvic floor, be it in order to improve their sexual life, to be able to breath deeply, to control intra-abdominal pressure in order to lift more weights in the gym, or just for fun, in order to better understand their own anatomy.

I was hoping this would have more information about pregnancy and postpartum pelvic floor issues but it wasn't really addressed. Honestly I didn't read the whole thing or do the exercises. It is probably good for people with issues more thoroughly addressed.

Interesting but a little too technical for the lay reader. But got a few ideas from it that has helped with my posture.
