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.

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...
