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 until you are able to build more tone in the...

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 wall and a block, you will be able to create...

Yoga for the Asymmetric Pelvis

You are invited to a special three hour workshop on Yoga for the Asymmetric Pelvis on April 29th, from 1 to 4 pm, at One Center Yoga. Who is this workshop for?

Also, I have finished production...

SI Joint Dysfunction in Yoga

SI Joint Dysfunction in Yoga

SI joint ‘dysfunction’ had been part of my life and personal journey for over 30 years. Sometimes the pattern was not noticeable, sometimes very painful for weeks on end, and most notably used to create a scoliosis pattern with knee and shoulder strain on opposing sides. What I can confidently report is that coming to understand and apply the right yoga moves is what had given me a fairly high degree of functioning even though my SI joints had been out of out of alignment at least half of the time. Now, in 2016, it turns out they are more stable thanks to the right maintenance....

Sacral Stability and Yoga.

Sacral Stability and Yoga.

It is becoming more common that students of Yoga suffer from “Pelvic Ring Instability” due to over stretching, to much flow yoga without building muscular integration by holding poses, and/or performing poses without alignment. This instability often results in hip, sacral, back and knee pain. During my October 2014 teacher training weekend students in my 500 hr yoga therapy program studied how to use yoga to address loss of stability in the sacroilliac joints and pelvic ring. At the end of the weekend one student who did not suffer from SI imbalance reported that her knees had been...
