Book Course

 

In this workshop Monica goes beyond the basic structure and function of our sacroiliac (SI) joints to a deeper exploration of the ligaments and muscles that provide the important passive and active stabilisation of this joint.

We examine the types of SI joint dysfunction and what compromises SI joint integrity. You will learn how to practically assess SI joint problems and differentiate them from other sources of low-back and pelvic pain. We will explore and practice important adaptations to seemingly benign yoga postures and hands on adjustments to protect and preserve SI joint stability. We will also cover specific therapy for SI joint pain as well as practical tips on how to avoid injury.

A digital copy of the PowerPoint slides is provided. The anatomical images and functional knowledge provide a deep understanding of the biomechanics of these joints. The strong practical component will show you how to care for these important joints both on and off your yoga mat.
