If you’ve been dealing with a consistent and persistent Sacroiliac Joint Pain, you know how frustrating it can be.
Especially since you have had some modest short term gains. You have figured out some tricks and tools to adjust or get some relief.
But that sharp stabbing pain, it still comes back. That radiating pain around the hip, pelvis or lower back, it doesn't quite completely settle.
You’ve stretched your hips 12 different ways. You’ve strengthened your core. You've watched countless sacroiliac joint videos on YouTube and faithfully done all of the exercises.
You've read about the relationship between your inner and outer core, your adductors and piriformis, your glutes, QL and obliques. You've stretched what you have been told is tight, and strengthened what you have been told is weak.
And you do feel stronger . . . in some ways. But any release you experience from the pain is only temporary. The longterm healing you seek remains stubbornly
I was one of those yoga teachers who thought pain was normal. After learning from Susi, I felt different - almost weird - because I had no pain.

The short answer is no.
Think of the pain in your sacroiliac joints as big loudspeakers.
And the persistency of the pain is letting you know - loud and clear - that something is up. That the short term relief you have experienced is superficial, or surface; and there is another problem - that when resolved will lead to more significant, meaningful and more complete change.
Said another way - where the pain is, is not the actual problem, it is an expression of the problem. The actual problem lies under your awareness.
This is why you haven't been able to resolve your issue completely.
You can't change anything you aren't aware of.
Which is why you can get short term relief but not long term change.
Or why what used to work, no longer does.
To get to a longer term solution, you need to address the issue that actually exists.
Otherwise, over time, if the actual issue isn’t resolved, your body will becomes more fatigued and tighter. Blood flow can reduce, trigger points develop, and the pain around your sacroiliac joints will likely persist and/or radiate.
I have worked with a lot of people over the years who have tried “everything” to resolve their SI Joint issues pain, without lasting success. I have helped them improve their awareness and gain the clarity on the actual problem.
To help them – and you, if you find yourself in the same frustrating situation – I have created an online program designed to teach you how to recognize and retrain the underlying biomechanical patterns and say goodbye to the pain once and for all.
Susi is an exceptional coach. If you want to work with one of the best, if you want to work with someone who really wants you to succeed, if you want to work with someone who truly walks the walk and talks the talk, work with Susi. She really knows what she is doing.

A key piece to recovering from pain is becoming aware and getting really clear on what is working and not working and then how to make the necessary change.
I have a BSC. Kinesiology and have been helping people reduce and eradicate pain for 25 years. I have also been a bridge between the medical world and yoga. Two of my programs have been studied at the University of Calgary and both showed benefit for supporting people and their wellbeing. I am also the author and presenter of I Love Anatomy and Anatomy for Yoga Therapists.
I have been training teachers and health professionals in yoga therapy since 2001 and am the lead teacher in the highly successful C-IAYT Accredited Functional Synergy Yoga Therapy Program.
As a young student of yoga, I began to combine the ancient practices of yoga with my BSc. Kinesiology at a Vancouver pain clinic. When I continued to encounter individuals, including yoga instructors, who accepted that their pain was “normal”, I began to explore how yoga was being taught and practiced. By designing therapy programs that utilized sound anatomical principles of kinesiology with the time-honoured practices of gentle yoga, I have enabled people to find pain relief, feel good, and rediscover vitality in their lives.
I've been practicing all the principles + after doing a 60-90 minute practices all week + moving w/ease + breath, I feel like I’ve just been moving + breathing, I don’t feel like I’ve “practiced.” Prior to this course usually something is hurting, strained, overused, but I’ve interpreted it as “I’ve worked out.” It’s just so strange to go thru my day + night “pain free” …..that I feel like I haven’t “done” anything….so my brain is catching up with the novelty that I can do a strong practice + not feel pain. AND I am making progress in areas where I was weak /tight/both or lacked mobility. Hope you understand what I’m saying, it’s just plain weird to not have twinges, tension during or after “practice”.
