Yoga for male pelvic floor health


A healthy pelvic floor for men means having normal and pain-free bowel, bladder and sexual function. According to Susie Gronski, a doctor of physical therapy who specializes in male pelvic health, yoga is an effective way for men to maintain a healthy pelvic floor.

Practicing specific contractions while in certain yoga poses helps if you have a problem with sexual, bowel and urinary function. Gronski suggests men engage the muscles around the genitals as if you were about to urinate and were holding it back. Or, she says, imagine you’re drawing the base of your penis inward.

Practicing coordinated contractions, one second on and one second off, is a similar action to what occurs involuntarily during ejaculation. Practicing these contractions can increase your awareness of this coordinated muscle activity and could help with premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction.
