The Treasures of Triangle
Why is the triangle pose blamed for issues in the spine, SI joints, and knees? Listen, as Susi explores why it's blamed and why on the flip side that the triangle is an exceptional position, especially when someone has recovered from SI joint issues, plus more in this episode of From Pain to Possibility.
Susi explores the triangle pose and describes what she has seen when people do a traditional way of moving into the pose versus how she prefers to see it done. Susi has found that her students are very surprised at how limited their hip movement is when teaching her way.
Do you know how to move correctly? Listen, as Susi discusses why most people don't have the foundation capacity or capability to do the triangle pose and what we can do about it. Susi believes that when you use smaller movements and learn how your joints move, you can quiet the compensation and move the way your body is designed to move.
The bottom line is that triangle can be horrible if you don't do it correctly. Do you want to learn how Susi does it? She is leading a two-hour course on triangle pose specifically. She will dig into some more of the pose's mechanics and dynamics, and she will walk you through some foundational movements, breathing, and awareness exercises to really explore your own self and movement.
