MBSR introduces mindfulness techniques for the purpose of enabling participants to integrate and apply mindfulness to their everyday lives. The MBSR curriculum is used as a structured pathway to reduce stress (physical, mental, emotional) and increase wellbeing. Or, as Jon Kabat-Zinn the founder of MBSR says, “It is a simple but powerful route for getting unstuck, and back in touch with your wisdom and vitality.”
Why mindfulness and why now? More than likely you have identified a problem or challenge in your life. This problem has caused you to suffer in some way, whether it be physical, emotionally, or spiritually. When you step back from your definition of this problem, you also noticed a part of you saying; “maybe there is another way of working with this problem.” After all, if you were satisfied with the current results, would you be willing to consider something new? This part of you is likely seeking balance, peace, equanimity, or a sense of more control. The MBSR program is designed to reconnect you to your inner wisdom and the deep knowing that resides inside you and that things can be different.
Outcomes include improvement in stress reduction related to sleep disorders, anxiety, emotional reactivity, anxiety, cancer, substance abuse, panic attacks and others. Many physical, psychological, and emotional benefits of MBSR have been reported in scientific literature. These are not promised results as the depths of any benefits gained is dependent on commitment and effort. The more a participant engages in the practice the more likely they are to experience the benefits.

Yoga and the Pelvic Floor: Teacher Training
May 6-9 | Saturday + Sunday : 12:00 — 5:30 pm with break, Monday + Tuesday : 11am — 4:00pm
Yoga Center of Denver
Join Leslie Howard, author of Pelvic Liberation and creator of Pelvic Floor YogaTM, in a special yoga teacher training focused on the proper strengthening and stabilizing of the pelvic floor to create the correct foundation of each movement in the body.
This twenty-hour training is designed to help yoga teachers deepen their understanding of how to teach students with pelvic floor issues and apply Pelvic Floor YogaTM. The course covers various topics, including the cultural, medical, and historical contexts of women and the pelvis, current understanding of the pelvis, in-depth anatomy of the pelvis, hip flexors and rotators, how posture affects the pelvic floor, identifying hypertonic vs. hypotonic muscles, and how emotions and breath impact the pelvic floor.
Other topics covered include teaching breath and asana to women who need more tone and those who have to much tone in their pelvis, how to hold a safe environment for women, what to do with the pelvic floor during all stages of pre and post-natal, and restorative yoga for the pelvic floor.
If you’re a yoga teacher looking to deepen your understanding of the pelvic floor and teach students with pelvic floor issues, this training is perfect for you.
Leslie Howard is an Oakland-based yoga teacher, specializing in all things pelvic. She leads workshops and trainings nationally and has written a book about caring for the female pelvis, Pelvic Liberation.
She is a regular presenter for the Yoga Journal conferences and a regular contributor to Yoga Journal magazine. Her own struggles with healing her hips and pelvis led her to intense study of the anatomy, physiology, cultural messaging, history and energetics of this rich place.
Her teaching is informed by over 3500 hours of yoga study with senior Iyengar yoga teachers. She considers Ramanand Patel her most important influence and mentor. She has designed two very successful studies for UCSF on how to use yoga to alleviate incontinence and pelvic pain.
Each year, Leslie gives presentations to hundreds of women on anatomy, physiology, posture, proper breathing techniques, and asanas (poses), a system she developed called Pelvic Floor YogaTM.
As a result many women have reported significant alleviation of symptoms including a decrease in pelvic floor issues thus lessening or eliminating the need for surgery and/or medication.
