Author's note:

I take it you want to learn more about the pelvic floor (PF), and you have come to the right place. The PF has become a hot topic in the movement world, so the time is ripe to learn more about it. It is a fascinating region of the body to explore because of the complex and multi-functional nature of the muscles that support our man and lady bits. While these muscles might be famed for their ability to control our bowels and bladder, PF function goes much further.

In this book, we dive into the functions beyond the obvious. We explain:

- How the PF responds to your every movement to maintain your overall stability and posture
- How the PF relates to breathing AND how we can use breathwork to encourage the PF to relax
- How the PF is involved in sex and orgasms
- How PF health is so closely related to psychological health via the mind-body connection

When you take a step back and begin to appreciate everything the PF does, it is really rather astounding! So astounding, that I believe the PF needs to be honoured, appreciated, and worked with. And guess what -- this book offers a set of tools for helping improve your overall pelvic health. What's more, since we believe in consulting experts, we also provide a Q&A with a pelvic health physiotherapist who specializes in this area of the body.

As movement enthusiasts -- and more importantly, as human beings with a pelvic floor -- I think it is so important to educate ourselves about pelvic health. This is precisely why we made this book.

I hope you enjoy learning about the PF as much
as I enjoyed writing this book!
