Course Description

This course is designed for anyone interested to learn more about the sacroiliac (SI) joint — whether you are a yoga teacher, a dedicated yoga student, or someone trying yoga to address SI joint discomfort. The SI joint is a critical hinging point between the upper and lower body, which means it often plays a contributing role in pain in the low back, pelvis, and/or hips.

  • Common sources of dysfunctions and stressors that trigger discomfort.

  • Be familiar with the function and common dysfunctions found in this key joint.
