Know What You’re Doing: Connecting with Your Pelvis

March 30, 2011

The pelvis is composed of the largest and heaviest bones in the body. The pelvis is also the center of the body and coordinates and transfers the movement through the trunk, head and arms; that is, it should transfer movement to the upper body but very often doesn’t do its job. If the pelvis is rigid movement and won’t move, the vectors of force generated from the legs (in running or walking) cause pounds of pressure to push into the hip joints like pile drivers hitting against bedrock. When this happens, the whole body needs a wake-up call.

Follow along with Susinn as she demonstrates another quick Feldenkrais® Awareness mini-move that will begin to make the pelvis feel lighter and freer.
