Presented by Tom Myers

The hips, low back, and sacrum complex takes a lot of strain in the extremes of motion – forward bends, backbends, lateral stretches, and especially twists.  This workshop enumerates the do’s and don’ts of lumbar, sacrum, sacroiliac, tailbone, and hip relationships in both asana and gait analysis.

Learn how all these bones change relative to each other in these movements, and locate the areas vulnerable to injury.  Learn how to enhance post-injury healing through rolling and self-bodywork, and when to rest.

This course is open to all movement practitioners and manual therapists with an interest in movement, and to student adepts who are interested in low-back safety and ‘movement hygiene’.

This day includes:

  • How muscles and ligaments work together in the pelvis
  • Which asanas expose the low back and SI joints to the most strain?
  • What signs point to the likelihood of low back injury?
  • How to promote fascial and ligament healing after a strain
  • BodyReading™ pelvic postural patterns with applications to asana


  • To identify and review common weaknesses and injuries in the lower back and pelvis
  • To identify predisposing factors for low back injury
  • To promote visual assessment skills for postural imbalance in the pelvis
  • To review best practices for healing ligament and muscles strain injuries
