  • Thinking about the tilt of the pelvis

    The tilt of our pelvic, either forward or back, has a major impact on our posture, and can lead over the long term to back, shoulder and neck pain. We explored this movement in class this week, first sitting cross legged on the floor, and then using blocks to help...
