Sacral Stability, the Core and the Breath

With Doug Keller

Two Day Therapeutic Teacher Training

Sacral stability is part of a broader topic of pelvic and low back pain, which is more intimately related to issues of the breath than we might realize.

This two-day training will focus first on understanding the sacrum and sacroiliac joint — its proper movement and the sources of pain in the ligaments. This will include covering beneficial actions — both remedial exercises and applications in asana — that go beyond most traditional instructions given in yoga class, but which are at the same time simple, accessible and whose effects can immediately be felt.

This naturally expands into consideration of the ‘Core’ and the bandhas — and how they are to be understood and applied in movement and asana. And this will be put in the context of the breath and breath patterns, with the understanding that many pain patterns in the pelvis and low back are related to disordered breathing patterns. In establishing better breathing patterns — with deep consideration of ‘Ujjayi’ breathing — we’ll reestablish the connection between breath and bandha.

We’ll devote plenty of time to applications in asana, with time for practice and for putting the knowledge to use!
