RADICAL PELVIC HEALTH INTENSIVE

A 5-day deep dive into physiology, movement, and radical pelvic health

JULY 7th - 12th, 2022 | VERMONT

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
Organ prolapse
Painful monthly cycles
Difficulty with fertility and birth

We were not taught how to live in our female bodies.

BUT WE CAN LEARN.

THE RADICAL PELVIC HEALTH INTENSIVE

...is for the woman who has gone to the doctor with painful periods, and is told to go on birth control.

...for the woman who has visited her gynecologist experiencing painful sex, and is told it's normal.

...for the woman who goes to the physical therapist after a lifetime of low-back pain, and is told to do more core work.

This is for the woman who is ready to take full responsibility for her radical pelvic health.

Sister, what if there is NOTHING wrong with you?

What if, instead, everything you've been taught about your body was wrong?

What if you could learn about your female body- and how to care for it- from a radical feminist lens?

The Radical Pelvic Health Intensive is for you.

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 & understand your body.

Meet Adelaide Meadow

Your radical pelvic health expert.

Let’s talk about the correlation between pelvic posture and vaginal health

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.

What women are saying about working with Adelaide:

"Yoga with Adelaide was the first time I could do yoga without pain."

- Keighlee

"Throughout my pregnancy, I learned more about my body from Adelaide's classes than I did from any of my doctors."

- Darby

"Adelaide's teachings were the most helpful part of my prenatal care, and I'm a homebirth midwife."

- Celia

"Adelaide is a clear and dynamic educator with a pertinent perspective on women's health. Her understanding of the body's wisdom is a resource for families and their allies."

- Kyla, Nurse Practitioner with a focus on women's health
