Ways to guide students in lifting the pelvic floor?

Press inner thighs together with a block to engage inner groin adductor to begin the process of understanding the lift of the pelvic floor. Also, suggest lying on the back and getting them to soften the abdominal organs and begin to get the same actions in the legs, contracting and pulling up from the anal sphincter.

Another way – put students in poses where the heel of the foot is under the perineum/anus region, such as Ardha Matsyendrasana and teaching to lift up off the heel.
