The Asymmetrical Pelvis & Spine: Patterns of Diagonals & Imbalances
Everyone seems to have an imbalance in their body. It can be confusing because we so badly want to fix it but are unsure how to accomplish this goal. Often it is not the obvious choice but something else in the body that is causing the obvious imbalance. In this workshop, we will look at different bodies and discuss, by looking at imbalances in the pelvis and ribcage, how to address them with breath and Pilates exercises.
We will talk about how the body compensates in the pelvis and ribcage and how this can lead to possible future knee and hip injuries. Discovering new ways to teach clients who have asymmetrical pelvic patterns, including scoliosis, and learning how to address these imbalances to bring more awareness so clients can be more present and proactive with their own movements.
Through understanding these powerful body forces and helping clients realign themselves, we can help prevent hip and knee damage, as well as enable them to heal more effectively after injury or surgery.
