Part B will begin by covering modifications of yoga poses to address soft tissue tightness, functional movement, and pelvic dysfunction. The pelvic clock in supine from Part A will be reviewed, and techniques for the facilitation of a client’s understanding of the pelvic clock will be presented. Components of Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement lessons to promote functional movement and address pelvic dysfunction will be demonstrated, as well as the pelvic clock exercise in sitting.
