Hip and Sacrum Workshop

In this workshop we will focus on instructions how you can balance your hips. The balance of our hips are important because they are the centre of our body structure. Therefore, they play a huge role in our posture. They also influence our lower back, how we sit and walk. It is  important to be generally aware and to take care of this structure. Common symptoms of an imbalance in our hips can be lower back pain, pain during and after walking, pain after standing, groin pain, aching pain while lying down or pain referring into the hips or buttocks.

The hips and SJ-Sacroiliac joints distribute the weight from our spine, shoulder, neck, head and into the legs and feet. It is very important to maintain the balance and integrity in the hips because the upper, middle and lower part of our body are interrelated.  Any misalignment in the hips and sacrum can affect the alignment of the spine, shoulder, legs, knees and feet.

The sacroiliac joint or SI joint (SIJ) is the joint between the sacrum and the ilium bones of the pelvis, which are connected by strong ligaments. In humans, the sacrum supports the spine and is supported in turn by an ilium on each side (Source: Wikipedia)

During the workshop we will study the anatomy of the sacroiliac joint. We will discuss what can cause sacroiliac-joint pain and how to avoid it. We will practice asanas that maintain pelvic stability. Further, we will explore functional movements to reduce tightness and increase strength of the muscles surrounding the sacroiliac joint.

The workshop will be held at Unit 56, 51 Leighton Place, Hornsby NSW 2077.
