have you been doing pelvic floor exercises as well? might help, if you haven't. If you have I'm sorry I don't know what to suggest! blush

I don't know to be honest - but I found that I was doing ffs (fanny farts) when I first had my baby 7 mths ago. I have been religiously doing my pfexercises and no more ff's. It was just a thought but I don't think I'm being very helpful, sorry.

fab thanks. you are being helpful. off to do pf's.

god i think it's just part of yoga to be honest, just look deep in meditation and don't worry, they've heard it all before.

i did this when I started yoga many years ago, had never even given birth.

I just learnt to clench hard when I was doing a position that caused it. usually coming back from a headstand blush.
