The Intuitive Pelvis
Connect with your Root.
5 Week Embodied Program
An intuitive program for womxn, mothxrs, and birthing, postnatal, and menopausal people who want to take control of their pelvic health and reduce symptoms of incontinence, prolapse, and painful intercourse.
Your pelvis is a sacred vessel that holds the source of creation and the ability to eliminate everything you absorb that might harm you. The pelvis is the connection point in the body between the lower extremities and all vital organs. It is the origination of who we are, our relationships and where we come from in this world.
Your pelvis was designed to enhance wellness and health in your body and bring forth new life. Yet, the pelvis is frequently the most neglected part of the body and social conditioning can lead you to disconnect with your pelvis and its ailments.
Avoiding certain activities because of Incontinence, Sexual Pain or Prolapse is not a normal state of pelvic health.
Now is the time nourish your pelvic health and embrace all activities in life!
I will be honoured to journey with you on your path to restoring balance within your pelvis.

Does this sound like you?
If this sounds like you , then The Intuitive Pelvis Program was designed for you!
Your pelvis holds your body in balance and is meant to be nurtured and cared for like every other part.
Many people experience symptoms of pelvic dysfunction particularly during pregnancy, postpartum, peri-menopause, menopause and post pelvic surgery. Yet, most womxn are not able to get the care they need to find relief.
Because pelvic health concerns are not commonly spoken of socially and symptoms are often normalized by many healthcare providers, people suffer without ever receiving proper care. Furthermore, many people disassociate from their own pelvic awareness because of sexual or birth trauma, social norms, insensitive health care, or lack of information. Past sexual and birth trauma can further impede access to care because of the vulnerability associated with this part of the body.
Although pelvic health dysfunction is common, it is not normal. You are not meant to suffer with pelvic health dysfunction and you deserve to regain health and balance in your body.
By sharing in a community of people who are experiencing similar symptoms, you will gain insights and wisdom about your own body and experience. Throughout the program, Colleen will help you identify and explore your pelvis while tuning in to your body's needs. The Intuitive Pelvis Program will help you discover techniques that you can incorporate into your life to help support your pelvic health.
It is possible to reduce symptoms of incontinence, prolapse and sexual pain by taking an embodied approach to your health and pelvic awareness. Refining awareness with your pelvic health can be the beginning of restoring balance to this part of the body.

Hi, I'm Colleen Stadlwieser (she/her). I am a birth keeper, truth seeker and yoga guide. My mission is to help you navigate the uncertainty of pregnancy, birth, postpartum and all the changes these bring to your body by integrating yoga, reflection and breath so that you discover your innate wisdom and find balance in your body, mind and soul.
Birth keeping has been in my blood for over 20 years and the journey has not always been straight forward for me... I'm a mother of eight children: 1 adopted, 2 biological living children, one failed adoption, and 4 biological angel babies. I experienced four miscarriages and thirteen years of unexplained infertility on my path to becoming a mother and know the worries that come with this journey very well. In spite of my advanced maternal age, my postpartum experiences were far more physically challenging to me than pregnancy ever was.
My classes and offerings focus on serving womxn who are struggling with the emotional, social and physical changes that these transitions bring. My knowledge about the pelvis is based upon my yoga training as well as my own journey back to pelvic balance. Which is what I want to share with you!
I'm glad you are here and look forward to connecting with you on your journey. I am honoured to guide you on your path back to pelvic health.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much time is involved with the program?
90-120 minutes of in class time per week, and another 30 minutes of home practice.
What if I miss a week?
If you miss a week, we can make it up one-on-one sometime in the privacy of your home, or I will record the session for you to watch on your own time.
What if my pelvic health doesn't improve?
My hope is that you would find some relief from your symptoms and become more in tune to the needs of your body by integrating the techniques and information shared in this program. The techniques shared in the Intuitive Pelvis Program have been helpful in my own recovery and quite often there is an element of trial and error to discover what will be successful in your own recovery. By integrating the reflections and techniques offered throughout the program, you will develop awareness of what works for your body. However, with any program of health, there are no guarantees. Not every technique works in every body the same way and you may require more specialized care than the scope of this program can offer. I provide resources for you to reach out to and further assist you on your path to recovery throughout the program.
Do I still need to see a pelvic floor physiotherapist or uro-gynechologist if I participate in this program?
The Intuitive Pelvis Program is intended for you to use as a tool on the path towards your recovery. The program is designed for you to pay attention to what specifically works in your body to assist in your recovery. The program cannot replace the care of a physiotherapist or uro-gynechologist. If you are receiving care from another healthcare provider I encourage you to continue that relationship if you are finding the services helpful. Ultimately, you are the person responsible for your health and wellness in your life and know best whether any care provider is benefiting you and whether or not to continue receiving support from them. The decision is completely yours.
How long will I have access to the course materials for?
You will have access to the course content for the entire 5 weeks of the program along with any notes that you make during the course. Any hand-outs provided to you during the program are available to you for your future use, but should not be shared with anyone outside of the course.
