Episode 36: Anatomical Focus for a Posterior Pelvic Tilt

This class is  a video specifically designed for those with a posterior tilt of the pelvis. Before going ahead and doing this podcast, you will want to be sure that this class is suitable for your postural habits. A posterior tilt of the pelvis looks something like this, with the tail tucking under and the lower back rounded:

Generally, this causes the hamstrings to be tight, the lower back to flatten from it’s natural lumbar curve and the shoulders to begin a steady slump forward. The class was originally created with as a video. I have posted the mobile version here. Be sure to have a blanket or towel, and a strap.

Episode 35: A Quiet Spine Video

It’s a video!!! This is a 75 minute practice in which the poses are held slightly longer. The way that most of the asanas in this class are designed is so that you feel more supported by the props and the floor. I hope that you find this class beneficial for you when you need more of those long juicy stretches rather than a vigorous vinyasa class.

If you would like only the audio of this class it is in the next post. 

You will need a block, a strap, and a blanket for class.

There is an added bonus at the end of class introducing how to bring a foam roller into your yoga practice.
