The Holy Bone: S-I Joint Workshop (Elite Fitness, Saigon, Vietnam)

Where is the sacrum and what are the S-I joints? Many students, and even yoga teachers, have little awareness of this region and its importance as a stabilizing structure. The sacrum--which means “holy bone” in Latin--is the base of your spine, literally your anatomical center.

This workshop will introduce essential anatomy of the sacrum and S-I joints. We will learn how to control sacral movements to benefit your yoga practice and everyday locomotion. We will introduce posture modifications that may minimize or prevent S-I joint pain, and explore the energetic “lock” of uddiyana bandha. Teachers will expand their teaching skills by refining the way they instruct backbends.
