If you have any pre-existing medical conditions we recommend you obtain approval from your Doctor or healthcare professional before starting. Remember, always start your exercise program slowly, work within your own comfort zone and build as you go to lessen the risk of injury.
Each of the following exercise videos has been specifically designed to improve and enhance different areas of your pelvic floor muscles. These videos have clear step-by-step instruction from Jane as to how to correctly perform the movement so that you can give your pelvic floor muscles a full workout without too much strain on your body. For maximum effectiveness, we recommend trying each of the videos starting with the Introduction to Pelvic Floor Exercises and working your way through all 13 pelvic floor exercise videos. The exercises work best when done while engaging the pelvic floor (or ‘core’) muscles and should be incorporated into a regular exercise routine.
