Great tips, Lillah – much appreciated! I hadn’t ever really thought about SI stability or heard it mentioned before. It gives me another aspect to be aware of and something to keep in mind when leading classes. I look forward to the rest of the series!

Thank you for this series. I have been a yoga student for many years. My hips and Si joint are hyperflexible and as a result – my yoga practice has not always helped this stabilization until I learned how to use alternating lines of energy to stabilize. This series has helped so much.

QUESTION – My left hip, si joint, etc is the side of pain. I also feel it ALOT in the front of my left leg at the hip flexor area. LOTS OF DISCOMFORT> Any suggestion?

Hello Amanda, It sounds like your left illium is moved backwards which tends to pull the sacrum with it making pain about the size of a quarter at the top of back hip. This would also pull on the front and shorten the muscles there. ilds pose with a blanket roll deep into the front hip crease should give some relief for the pain. Also there is a blocking pattern used by Dr. of chiropractic that may help. Lye on your belly and place the corner of a folded blanket under your left top thigh and right frontal hip bone and do prone savasana. The idea is that gravity will pull thr left side back into place…. Good luck! thanks for reading, more to come.
