Stabilize the Sacrum Part 5: Core Strength

Finding Your Core Core strength is important for all yoga practitioners and often overlooked. SI joint pain can often be traced to a weak core and pelvic floor. Everyone knows they need core tone, yet finding the best yoga moves to build that tone can be challenging. When we talk about core tone we need to consider the transverse abdominal muscle especially the section located in the space from just above the pubic bone to the navel. In order to tone our core we need to be able to draw the lower belly in and up without tipping of the pelvis or clamping down with our ribs. Ie: keep the rectus...

Stabilize the Sacrum- Part 4 Setu Bhanda

My Favorite Yoga Pose After Sitting After all the time many of us spend in a chair, this pose will feel really good! The pelvic lift or Setu Bhanda is at the base of many therapeutic yoga sequences. Using the pose as part of this sacral stabilization series returns tone to the deep posterior buttock muscles that are needed for happy hips. Pelvic Lift / Setu Bandha Sarvangasana Place a strap around your thighs, 4–6 inches above your knees, and slide your hips toward your feet so your knees are over your ankles. Curl your tail and slide your knees forward to lift your hips up. Exhale and press...

Triangle Pose Challenges the Sacrum – Part 3

Triangle Pose Challenges the Sacrum – Part 3

The Importance of Pose Alignment Triangle pose or Trikonasana challenges students with Sacro-illiac joint problems in a big way, as it is difficult to get enough rotation and depth on the front leg to allow the sacrum to tip sufficiently to avoid strain.

If you find this pose creates negative pain either when in the pose or just after performing the pose, then it is best to leave it alone until you are able to build more tone in the...
