The pelvic girdle is the first segment of the lower body, inside it contains
some organs such as the bladder, both intestines and in the case of women
the reproductive organs, also serves to anchor the lower extremities to the
axial skeleton. The pelvis is composed of the two iliac bones and the sacrum,
it must fulfill two functions:
-First, a static in which it is necessary to ensure the congruence of the three
bony parts that compose it, and that, in the center of its ingenious
architectural design converge the ascending and descending forces
transmitted by the trunk and lower limbs.
– Second one, is that it must have and whose function in this case is
dynamic, the ability to move together, in addition that these structures must
have some capacity for deformation between the three bone pieces, so they can adapt and absorb the asymmetric forces projected during the march.
The functionality is to maintain the coherence and incongruity of the three bony pieces that make up this structure, because they act as a dilatation joint,
absorbing the forces transmitted through the march, that’s why we say that it is so important that the pieces that compose it have some ability to deform and be malleable to perform their function.
If our pelvis is rigid and we do not exercise it with the corresponding asanas that are needed, it will end up becoming a monolithic, inert structure, etc.
Lacking life and therefore energy, in addition to the passage of time could
occur fractures due to fatigue and osteoarthritis of the hip.
The practice of asanas and the progress of flexibilization of the pelvis in the medium and long term, will produce that our pelvic waist is at maximum
performance in its functions of absorption and tensional transmission,
functional improvement of the bladder, intestine and reproductive system.
To have a long-lived pelvis we must mobilize the pelvis through the asanas in each and every one of its possible planes of movement, whose objective is the “opening of the hip or pelvic unblocking”.
The results of practicing yoga aimed at maintenance, strengthening and
functional improvement of the pelvis is manifested by maintaining thesphericity of the heads of the femur over time, thus avoiding its gradual deterioration and coxofemoral joints by the constant impact of hammering,
the stresses would be absorbed and transmitted to the lower train in a much more efficient and effective way. Regular practice aligns the joints and
pelvic axes, thinking them as an architectural purpose, which aims to solve the problems of coherence, mobility, solidarity and lightness to facilitate
locomotion in a more efficient way.
The pelvis is an energetic reservoir related to the capacity of delivery and
pleasure. In the pelvis area happens that the inhibition of pleasure occurred during some phases of our childhood, having not been satisfied in the right
way, or that the demand was disproportionate. Therefore, it could become energy blockages or stagnating energy that is somatized at a physical and mental level with the passage of time for not having been released, forming
layers that make up, what in bioenergetics call the muscular shell and is a
psycho-emotional defense mechanism. They are emotionally dead zones,
because they have lost their sensory function of emotion, whose expression
of that emotion they block.
The rigidity of these shells causes the perceptive level distortion of the
individual in itself and its environment, hindering the relationship between
the two. This is how mechanical and compulsive behaviors originate,
hindering the potential development of the individual, causing difficulties
for adaptation, satisfaction and self-support.
The unblocking of this segment will make us closer to the balance between
well-being, creativity and spirituality, for the energetic liberation that we
Practicing Yoga, always guided by an instructor, we will have a strong
pelvis, breaking the shells, provaiding sensibility and movility. Letting the
