The pelvic girdle is the meeting point between the upper body and lower body and includes the key structures of the hips and SI joints. The pelvis absorbs and transmits forces throughout the body and serves as the center for coordinating and initiating movement. This structure provides protection for the lower abdominal organs and opens to release life into this world. Alignment and movement practices through yoga support balance in the pelvic girdle which can translate into better posture, ease in movement, and enhanced well-being.
