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...

Stabilize your Sacrum with Yoga: Part 2

Downward Facing Dog Helps Stabilize Welcome to Part 2 of Stabilizing your Sacrum with Yoga. A well done Adho Mukha Svanasana, or Downward Facing Dog Pose, will help you stabilize your sacroiliac joints and align your knees. Often in yoga classes students are asked to lift their hips high and bring their heels and chest down toward the floor. Aggressive action in this way without aligning the bones leaves the ankles, knees, and hips sloppy and disconnected so structural support is lost. By following the ques in this video with the aid of the...

Stretching Your Hamstrings is Bad?

Stretching Your Hamstrings is Bad?

Stretch or Strengthen Your Hamstrings? The Spirit of B.K.S. Iyengar must have somehow touched Michael Edwards, creator of Yoga Align when he wrote the article Stop Stretching Your Hamstrings, hosted by Huffington Post. Alignment in yoga is important for many reasons. I agree with the intent of his article, which is to shed light into a dark place in the understanding and practice of yoga where people overstretched their hamstrings, weakening the integrity of their structure. Having been trained in the Iyengar method, the source of alignment...
