The Core and the Sacrum: Principles for Practice

A common problem for many yoga practitioners is SI joint pain, which can arise when the sacrum gets destabilized. In this Practice Tutorial, Doug shows how to maintain stability in the sacrum by engaging the core. Doug explains the key principles and actions for activating the core to safely support greater mobility in the lower back on our practice.

The Four Corners and the Core in Twisting

In the low back there are a few places that are vulnerable to injury during twisting if we don’t take proper precautions. Doug explains these areas, and how we can coordinate our shoulders and hips to protect these vulnerable points and take care of our backs.

 

Releasing the Psoas Muscle for Low Back Relief 

An out-of-balance psoas muscle will pull on your back, and may lead to general back pain, groin pain, or even a herniated disk. Doug explains the different effects of different types of psoas imbalances, and guides you through a series of poses to release tight psoas muscles and find relief.
