Self-Calming through Observation and Imagery
This digital audio download is $16.
This audio CD includes a brief introduction explaining briefly the two branches of the autonomic nervous system including the parasympathetic and the sympathetic commonly known as the “fight or flight” nervous system. There are five tracks with the emphasis on bringing one to a place of observation. These tracks include breathing, organ weight bearing, neural openings, spatial observations and self-observation.
Mapping The Pelvis DVDs
Each digital video download is $20.
This is an hour long mat class bringing observation to the PSIS bones. The PSIS bones are the back hip bones of the pelvis. This class emphasizes how the PSIS bones of the pelvis coordinate with the motions of the legs. You will also learn how the PSIS bones mobilize in relationship to the spinal motions such as arching, curling, rotating and side-bending
This is an hour long mat class bringing observation to the ASIS bones. The ASIS bones are the frontal hip bones of the pelvis. The class emphasizes recognizing when the ASIS bones are indicating a Fight of Flight motor reflex posture or a functional movement parasympathetic posture. You will also learn how the ASIS bones mobilize in relationship to the motions of the legs.
The upper coccyx is the top of the tailbone where it meets the base of the sacrum. This hour long mat class will introduce you to the concept of how the top of the tailbone moves in order to create leverage of the legs and spinal column.
The pubic tubercules are boney knobs on the front underside of the pelvis. Their position in relationship to the legs is one of the best structural indicators as to what state of the nervous system we are operating in. This hour long mat class will familiarize you with the location of your pubic tubercules and how they coordinate with the legs.
The ischial tuberosities are commonly known as the sitz bones or sitting bones. Contrary to popular belief, they are located on the back of the body, not on the underside of the body. This hour long mat class will introduce you to the location of the ischial tuberosities as well as the soft muscular tissue of the posterior pelvic floor. This class will give you tools to recognize when the base of the back of the pelvis is being constricted thus limiting range of motion of the hip.
Pelvic Triangle & Pelvic Floor
The pelvic triangle is the base of the pelvis upon which we normally would sit. It is highly mobile and houses one of our seven valves. This hour long mat class will introduce you to the location of the pelvic triangle and the musculature that sits between the two sides of the triangle. It will give you the skills to recognize when the pelvic floor valve is moving up in the body to create immobility of the pelvic triangle.
The sacrum is a large structure at the base of the spine that makes up the back of the pelvis. The sacrum attaches to the pelvis at the sacroiliac (SI) joints. This hour long mat class will introduce you to your sacrum and how it relates functionally to the pelvis. The sacral position highly influences the colon function.
The bladder is attached to the pelvis with fascia. In the fight or flight state the bladder moves upwards in the pelvis pulling the pelvis out of functional alignment with the legs, thus limiting hip mobility. This hour long mat class will familiarize you with where your bladder is in the pelvic cavity.
Lateral Motion of Bottom Coccyx
This hour long mat class will introduce you to the “rudder” function of the tailbone. The tailbone moves laterally to dictate where weight bearing and load of the spine sit. Normally in gait the tailbone moves behind one leg and then the other. This hour long mat class will familiarize you with the tailbone and introduce you to its lateral shifting ability.
Iliac Crest Angle
The iliac crest is the top curve of the pelvis that runs between the ASIS and PSIS bone. The angle of the iliac crest allows for optimum mobility of the legs in coordination with the pelvis. This hour long mat class will allow you to observe how the iliac crest relates to the legs in various positions of weight bearing and load.
The ischial spine mobility in the transverse plane of motion is the precursor to forward and back motion of the pelvis and spine. This hour long mat class will introduce you to pelvic motions in the transverse plane.
The inguinal ligament is a ligament connecting the ASIS bone to the pubic bone of the pelvis. The inguinal ligament creates an outward support off of the femoral artery and vein and psoas muscle group. If the abdominal wall tightens inward too much the inguinal ligament compresses and thus limits pelvic mobility and circulation in the legs. This hour long class will introduce you to the inguinal ligament and allow you to recognize its position.
