- Preventing Yoga Injuries: Keys to Maintaining Sacroiliac Stability More and more Yoga practitioners (and their teachers) are showing up to class with sacroiliac discomfort becoming members of a rapidly growing international “SI Club”.
- In many instances, sacroiliac joint or SIJ issues in Yoga practitioners are the consequence of repetitive dysfunctional movements, skewed body mechanics and forceful overstretching. Over time, these actions can erode the inherent stability of the pelvis and the SI joint, resulting in chronic pain and movement impairment.
- Drawing on decades of medical research, Donna Farhi will use an evocative PowerPoint to guide you through the complex anatomy and kinesiology of the sacroiliac joints so that you can better understand why certain practices compromise the integrity of these joints, and why STRENGTHENING not STRETCHING is the key to reducing pain and healing these joints.
- In the second part of the clinic we’ll look at two of the most common culprits for creating SIJ instability and what you can do to correct these issues. Discontinuing these common practices can radically alter the future outcome for your sacroiliac joints, hips and lower back.
- We’ll follow this with a unique movement sequence that Donna has developed to restore pelvis balance and stability. This pelvic integrity practice is a simple, accessible practice that may become your lifelong friend.
