So I talk about sacroiliac joints loads in this blog. Largely because you ask loads of questions! If you are in Melbourne, and you want to learn more in person, perhaps you can join me for a workshop on 21 April to learn about the pelvis,the SI Joints, and stability? It will change EVERYTHING.

Continuing in this week’s theme of giving help when ask, today’s post is is for reader Nick, who said, Hi Nadine, I found you on the net whilst looking for things to help with si pain. Have been doing two of the exercises and would just like to say that they are a god send! [...]
Today’s yoga sequence comes to you from the awesome Bree over at yogagypsy. Bree’s kindly gone to a huge amount of effort to create this yoga sequence for us – once you’ve checked this one out, you should head over to her blog and have a wander around. Good shiz there. Really good. Note: This [...]
The five things you absolutely should not do when you have SI Joint Pain (and three that you should).
When you have SI Joint pain, and it’s really bad, just about all ‘regular’ yoga is a bad idea. Basically, other than doing things to help those joints get back into alignment, and more stable, you don’t want to be moving your pelvis and lower back around much.

This pose is gold, GOLD I tell you. Also, just a warning: there is a whole lot of anatomical geekery in this post. If it doesn’t interest you, go straight to the video at the bottom. You will get the benefits whether you know why it’s working or not. In the years when I had [...]
Hopefully you haven’t ended up with back pain because of your yoga practice, but you may well have. Far too many people do. Especially SI-Joint pain. I know I say this a lot but I could write a freaking BOOK about this. It would be a pretty whingey book. If you have lumbar disc issues [...]
I mentioned yesterday that I’ve had a flood of emails over the last week or so, from people who have yoga related injuries. One of the reasons it upsets me so much is that I am (or was) a person like that. When I first started yoga, I was hyper-anxious, super-competitve, and my felt sense [...]
Right. I’ve had enough. Last week, I was inundated, INUNDATED, with emails from people who have yoga related injuries, mostly backs and SI Joints. What have their yoga teachers being DOING? Surely they got the memo that their first job is to keep their students safe? Nope, apparently not. Man, it pisses me off. So, [...]
