Pictures please! This sounds great but I am a visual learner! :)


I agree, Renate. I have a client that has extremely tight hamstrings and lacks pelvic mobility. Illustrations would help with confident placement of props. Thanks!

Thanks for this article. Lengthening the side body is so delicious and freeing. I am trying to fully understand the tipping of the pelvis: In Parivrrta Janu Sirsasana to the right, if the pelvis does indeed tip to the right, would the left sitting bone then come up off the mat? If not, how would the pelvis tip? I would think the pelvic tipping is important in Trikonasana, because it helps keep boht sides of the waist long...but when our goal is to stretch one side of the waist, wouldn't we want to keep the pelvis stable so the top side of the waist must lengthen? Anyone want to share some thoughts on this?


What great clear, constructive advice for a common problem with beginners.


please show some pictures of what you explain about the poses (where to place what...) - it'll make it so much easier to understand.
