For almost three years, Jason has resisted addressing your questions about the sacroiliac joint (SI) — mostly because it’s such a complex topic for a podcast. But today! I wore him down. He addresses a listener question about the mysterious sacrum and the soreness that so often comes along with yoga practice.He talks about:
*Why, why, why?? do we so often experience sacral pain in yoga
*What is often happening to the sacrum when we experience pain flare-ups
*The role that the piriformis can play in SI soreness
*How to alter your yoga practice to get out of pain for good
