The Inhara Practice, or as some call it
"The Vagina Workshop"
The word Hara stands for the soft abdomen in Japanese.
The InHara Practice is a system of movement for women to reconnect with the most primal portion of her body, within her pelvis.
During this 4 week workshop, women will move through a specific sequence of “exercises” to connect with,tone, invigorate, and juice up the abdominal walls and pelvic floor.Immediate results have been: a stronger center and lift to a sagging pelvic floor.Long term results have included: re-lifting of prolapsed pelvic organs,vibrant sexual health, greater knowledge and confidence in your sexuality,and a renewal of the upward fountain of your creative drive.This program is for all women, at any age, and at any stage of her life.
Testimonials from workshop participants
"(I am) Well past child bearing age but very much interested in maintaining a strong pelvic core, I found Marissa's Inhara Workshop totally enlightening. I keep practicing because it continues to energize me." Therese
"The InHara Practice was a life-changer. I was able to identify specific things I was struggling with postpartum and follow a plan to strengthen my core and overall well being. I learned so much about myself and female anatomy. It is refreshing to have an open conversation about topics that don’t often get discussed in today’s society." Terri
