Doing Kegels But Not Noticing A Difference? These 5 Simple Yoga Poses Can Help

“When you look at the pelvic floor, it’s a matrix of muscles connecting your two sit bones, as well as your pubic bone and tailbone,” says Treacy. “Over time—and due to things like pregnancy, sitting too much, and obesity—those muscles stretch out and lose their tone.” What’s more, the joints on either side of your spine, which are held together by connective tissue, get lax, which can actually widen the space between your sit bones by up to an inch. This makes it challenging to tone the pelvic floor muscles even if you’re a Kegel devotee, says Treacy.
