Join us for a Puerto Rico Women's Retreat
RADICAL PELVIC HEALTH
Because sacred posture is your birthright.
Utuado, Puerto Rico
December 27th, 2021-January 2nd, 2022
A 7-day deep dive Puerto Rico women's retreat exploring physiological radical pelvic health.
Sister, this world was not designed for your body.
You were taught to stand like a man.
Breathe like a man.
Sit, walk, and move like a man.
And the consequences are life altering.
Chronic back and hip discomfort
Uncomfortable, not pleasurable sex
Painful monthly cycles
Difficulty with fertility, and birth
We were not taught how to live in our female bodies
But, we can learn.
Women's health concerns are largely misdiagnosed because female physiology is grossly misunderstood.
We go to the doctor with painful periods, and are told to go on birth control.
We go to the gynecologist experiencing painful sex, and are told it's normal.
We go to the physical therapist after a lifetime of low-back pain, and are told to do more core work.
But what if you're *not* actually destined to live in pain?
What if there is nothing wrong with you?
What if, instead, everything you've been taught about your body was wrong?
Even if you have been studying the body for a lifetime, have you been studying her genius from a female lens?
Your body is for you.
And when you support the body, you support the woman.
Developing an intimate relationship with your female physiology and pelvic health is essential for taking back your power, and your health, as a woman in our patriarchal world.
It starts with questioning what you've been told.
There is a lifetime of conditioning to undo, and learning to unlearn.
But take a deep breath...
You can know and understand your body.
Puerto Rico Women's Health Retreat: Radical Pelvic Health
How you stand is a feminist issue.
Meet Adelaide Meadow
Your radical pelvic health expert.
Adelaide is a physiologist, yoga teacher, bodyworker, and homebirth midwife who is passionate about the radical feminist reclamation of the body.
Her genius is her ability to read the female body- specifically, women's sacred posture and the magic of the female pelvis.
She is passionate about liberating movement practices from biologically inaccurate and harmful bodily teachings that are grounded in male physiology, and rebirthing female movement practices.
She is a sought-after teacher, leader, and speaker on women's health and women's culture, as well as the author and illustrator of a children's book about undisturbed birth.
