Did you know that prolapse occurrence is estimated in 35% of post-partum women and up to 40% of women who have undergone hysterectomies? Risk factors involve laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy, vaginal deliveries, and stress urinary incontinence operations.  This lecture explains the types and stages of prolapse, while offering a bio-tensegrity (fascial tensional integrity) framework for improvement. Prolapse is often seen as a weakness, yet focus on breath, position and connection make all the difference for dynamic stability and engagement. Learn how to work safely and confidently while also encouraging progression in the Pilates paradigm.


At the end of this course, participants will better understand:

  • the anatomy involved with the multiple pelvic organ areas commonly affected by prolapse
  • the multiple causes of prolapse
  • the staging of prolapse
  • how breathing in the Pilates environment promotes pre-natal preparation to avoid prolapse
  • fascial engagement to support optimal pelvic floor activity in supine, prone, sitting, standing and dynamic action
  • the impact of musculoskeletal loading on prolapse
  • a progression of improvement in both mat and Pilates equipment
