🔸🔸🔸

Pelvic floor wellness is more than just a simple squeeze. The pelvic floor plays a major part in our lifestyle: from basic breathing to supporting our internal organs; aiding in sexual, bladder, and bowel functions; and helping to stabilize our entire structure. Pelvic floor wellness is a holistic journey through our physical, mental, emotional, and sexual Self.

🔸🔸🔸


Our Vision

We aim to be a global community of women supporting women with the intention of bringing the issues surrounding women's pelvic floor wellness into more of a main stream level of awareness.


Our Mission

We offer online education and live events to promote understanding of pelvic floor health and to encourage more candid conversation and effective treatment through the sharing of stories, practices, techniques, and professional resources.

CPF Series Online Course and Community

In the CPF Series, you'll learn the reasoning behind why pelvic floor wellness is more than just a simple squeeze. You'll also come to understand that an interdisciplinary team approach to your healing may also be necessary. In your private video series, you'll explore the anatomy of the core, pelvic floor, and the breathing mechanism; certain PF dysfunctions and how they manifest in the body and mind; and how to alleviate certain symptoms. Through yoga, laughter, fascia release, and the sharing of stories -- this is our CPF Series Online Course and Community. Trust the process, sister. Join us!

In Your CPF Series Online Course You Will Learn:

✔️ we're all in this together
✔️ healing is possible
✔️ just because we’re tight, doesn’t mean we’re strong
✔️ pelvic floor dysfunction is NOT normal
✔️ how to replace shame with joy
✔️ where the pelvic floor is located
✔️ why the PF is vital to a healthy lifestyle
✔️ how the pelvic floor relates to our core, our breath, and our connective tissue
✔️ how the PF relates to our emotional balance
✔️ how to externally and internally access it

🔸 IMAGINE THIS 🔸

sleeping through the night without waking to pee

holding your baby with stability and confidence

having sex with no pain

feeling joy and positivity rather than guilt and shame

sneezing, running, lifting, coughing, dancing, and laughing without leaking


🔸 TRUST THE PROCESS 🔸

This course and community has been designed for all of us women in mind. We all have a pelvic floor and need to know what to do keep her happy and healthy! Celebrate the Pelvic Floor is here to heighten our awareness by bringing this topic into the light. Through compassion, we’ll gain confidence. Through relaxation, we’ll gain strength. And through celebration, we’ll gain a new understanding of the body’s beauty and resilience.

This course is for YOU if you're a woman who seeks more joy and positivity in your daily life through physical and emotional stability in the core and pelvic floor. The techniques in this course have been proven effective in alleviating symptoms related to leakage, trauma, shame, pelvic pain, back pain, tightness, weakness, core instability, scarring, and painful sex and orgasm.

Hi! 👋 I’m Julie Blamphin, Founder of Celebrate the Pelvic Floor


My first teaching experience, when I was 12 years old, was coaching 4-8 yr old children with special needs. My mother owned a school of gymnastics and that's where my life's work began. 💫

Many years later, my role as a pelvic floor advocate actually began with my mother, as well. In 2003, Momma was diagnosed with a pelvic floor dysfunction. (Her full story in CPF Series Ep 3.) What then followed - along my own journey - was more experience, education, and awareness. A year after receiving my yoga certification in 2009, a student of mine tells me she feels like she's 'falling apart'. She'd recently lost her husband and now felt her body was manifesting the heaviness of her grief. The diagnosis of pelvic organ prolapse confirmed it. She's one of the many to practice pelvic floor stability with me through yoga, laughter, and fascia release. My own personal PF story includes pain, tightness, leakage, and shame -- the full gamut of physical, sexual, mental, and emotional challenge. Along the way, I've continued my education to hone this focus through Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Pelvic Floor Yoga with Leslie Howard, Transcendental Meditation, Laughter Yoga, and The MELT Method with Sue Hitzmann. Celebrate the Pelvic Floor was founded in the hopes of sharing all this knowledge with women far and wide. There are too many of us suffering in silence! Let's take this topic away from taboo, ladies. The time is NOW! 💥

"Who Knew...?"

Karen

I have been practicing CPF Yoga with Julie for only a few months, but I have been very impressed with her knowledge of pelvic floor dysfunction. Julie is passionate about alerting us to an issue I never considered could be causing my complaints of bladder symptoms and chronic pain. Who knew that healthy pelvic floor muscle function is directly related to the way you breathe? Practicing with Julie and then adopting diaphragmatic breathing, supportive yoga poses and pelvic floor relaxation techniques have enhanced my lifestyle. Thank you, Julie!

"I'm Feeling Empowered"

AliceAnne

Celebrate the pelvic floor!!! I honestly want to shout this! Since working with Julie in understanding what CPF means, I’m learning to listen to what my body feels and needs. Through CPF breathing, poses and enlightenment, I’m feeling empowered, peaceful and free. I’m releasing shame, worry and self-doubt while also embracing my unique and divine self! We need to not only talk about our pelvic floor, but indeed CELEBRATE IT!

"Awareness Has Helped"

Donna

I have noticed that my previous issues I had with hip flexors seems to be gone. I have also noticed my hamstring issues have improved. It’s been very interesting to realize that my alignment may have been causing problems and having that pointed out and awareness has helped me improve my pain issues.

"Enlightening"

Elizabeth

My CPF practices have been so enlightening. I've always said I have the bladder the size of a peanut! I would constantly worry about if I'd be able to find a bathroom when I was out of the house. But now, I'm able to recognize that many of my urges were about my pelvic floor tone and not my bladder.
