“ The pelvis is the centre of the body, when the pelvis is balanced you feel more grounded.” – Karyn Marais
23 Feb 2019 | 11 am – 2 pm | ZAR 390 | At ReUnion Yoga & Meditation
Following the well-attended foot workshop, Karyn Marais continues the journey from the feet into the pelvis. She will guide you through steps to finding a balanced pelvis. The pelvis is the centre of the body, when the pelvis is balanced you feel more grounded.
What we will explore:
-basic alignment principles, experiential anatomy of pelvic alignment, front to back, left to right, deep front line to lateral.
-techniques which build awareness around balancing stability and flexibility to create pelvic integrity (the importance of the psoas muscle)
-balancing and strengthening the deep core, strengthening a centered body rather than accentuating an old pattern.
(the work of transverse abdominis and multifidus)
-the art of walking, drawing in from what we have covered above we look at the natural movement of the pelvis in our evolutionary bipedal gait as we stride with one leg in front of the other.
