Your pelvic bowl is the complex structure of bones, muscles, and connective tissue, that includes your ilium bones (hip bones), sacrum, tailbone, pubic bone, and top of the femur (thigh bone). Your pelvic floor is a basket of interwoven tissues that form the "floor" of your pelvic bowl. In our class, we focus on the physiology and function of the pelvis, connect with our pelvic floor muscles through breath and movement, and learn which actions and positions help the baby engage, move through, and exit the pelvis.
