Special Workshop

The Buoyant Pelvis

What is a "balanced body"?

Saturday Aug. 22nd

10am am – 4 pm

Every asana (posture) has its root in the pelvic girdle. Any misalignment of the pelvis creates an imbalance, increasing the risk of injury.

  • Understand the basic anatomy and biomechanics of the pelvic area.
  • Recognize the symptoms of disfunction in the sacroiliac joint.
  • Learn how to apply sound biomechanics in asana to prevent pelvic girdle injuries>

Tammy Bigley, MSPT, is the director of Women's Health at Ascent Physical Therapy, and a survivor of gymnastics. She brings her expertise and her exceptional ability to make expert concepts accessible to everybody.

Angela Sullivan is certified Yoga and CoreAlign instructor and a proud survivor of sacroiliac disfunction with over 25 years of yoga teaching experience and a unique approach to understanding the balanced body.

There is no charge for the workshop, although a practice of generosity through donations is welcome to help defray expenses.

Space is limited! RSVP to Elizabeth at 885-9965.

Yoga

explores the intimate connections between body, mind and spirit. We learn to genuinely listen to our bodies while we develop flexibility, strength, and endurance. The practice of yoga is uniquely adaptable; the benefits are both immediate and enduring.

The classes at Sun Mountain Yoga are firmly grounded in human biomechanics, providing a safe and supportive environment in which to strengthen, release and reeducate our bodies for our daily lives.
