Ditto on the comments about this needing graphics. It would be very helpful for those of us new to this who do not have a good understanding of anatomy. Now I have to go searching the internet. It should all be available in one place, because this is very important information not fully delivered for those of us who are visual learners.


Very informative article. Would e better with graphics


I loved the article, but found that I DID have to REALLY concentrate to understandt the visualizations. For me, it would be easer to understand the paragraphs, if they were supported by graphics. This would enable the less anatomically educated reader to understand these concepts more easily and improve their practice.


@Lynne, there's no substitute for a good teacher when it comes to yoga. Even a few teacher-led classes can greatly improve your at-home practice.

This article is extremely clear and beautifully describes all of the necessary components to create a well aligned triangle pose. And also why it is important. Once again Julie, great job

ANYTHING I read by Julie Gudmedstad is informative, easy to understand if one concentrates, and adds to my knowledge of anatomy. Thank you......


Jenny McCarthy has a good program for regular exercise but I wish I could find a similar program for yoga. She uses a camera to correct positioning and also plans an individual program. With so much information out there it would be helpful to know where to start for my body type.

I am a Yoga E-RYT,I thought it was very good Info.A visual wood have been helpful.


Without images, drawings or a video, the "Free Your Pelvis" article is nearly worthless. I'm disappointed.
