Yoga for Back Pain & The SI Joint Workshop - 6/9


Friday, June 9, 2017 ( 6:00pm - 8:00pm )

What Is the SI Joint? Its full name is the sacroiliac joint. There are two of them in your lower back, and they sit on each side of your spine. Their main job is to carry the weight of your upper body when you stand or walk and shift that load to your legs.

The SI Joint is often overlooked as a common cause for back pain in Yoga practice and in life because of its complex nature.  In this workshop with Instructor, Alison McLean DPT, E-RYT, HHP, we will explore the anatomy and bio-mechanics of this baffling joint and participate in a therapeutic Yoga practice to open as well as stabilize the area.  You will leave feeling lighter and freer in your lower back, pelvis and hips with tools you can use safely at home.

+ Learn how to distinguish between lower back pain and sacroiliac joint dysfunction. 
+ Experience moving the hip in its 6 directions
+ Learn traction techniques that you can practice at home
+ Strengthen and stabilize the SI joint
+ Understand how to modify your practice to suit your body’s needs

$35pp / Space is limited to 20 guests / All mats and props are provided / Essential Oils will be woven into the practice for enhanced effects.
