Lessen Your Back Pain with Yoga and Walking

I love yoga. I have studied, taught, and practiced yoga for over 35 years. I started my yoga journey because it was the best relief I found for my low back pain. I even wrote a book in 2016, Healing Our Backs with Yoga, reflecting my life’s work in order to share my gifts and knowledge to help others learn how to apply yoga effectively for the relief of back pain. Changing Lifestyles… As we go through life the demands, our habits and our activities change. For me, my fully active teaching schedule and duties as a business owner...

Stabilize the Sacrum Part 7: Locust Pose

Stabilize the Sacrum Part 7: Locust Pose

The Importance of Pelvic Tone Just recently there was an NPR special on the detriments of sitting for long hours. The report covered how people who sat for more than 6 hrs a day, including work and home life, lost their capacity to walk. That is really BIG. My personal experience can testify to this possibility. Now that I spend much more time at my desk as a way of reaching out to my students from all over the East Coast, I ran into my own difficulty when walking due to a lack of muscle tone. So I have established a more balanced practice of...

Stabilize Your Sacrum with Up Dog – Part 6

Does your Butt have this one? Classically core strength is delegated to the transverse abdominus muscle. However when it comes to stability for the sacroilliac joints the muscles of the buttocks along with the deep intrinsic muscles of the hip joint also need to be toned. Everyone would love to have a good looking yoga butt, and rightfully so! Not only do toned muscles contribute to the shape of the buttocks, they also give posterior stability so a person can stand from a squat without using their hands. Can you? Upward Facing Dog Pose...

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...

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...

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. One also needs to have a certain degree of tone in the lower abdomen to support the sacrum from the front of the pelvis. Remember the principles of yoga. 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...
