In this class, we will discuss the relationship of the SI Joint with the pelvic floor.  We will identify the major muscles of the pelvic floor and explore how they relate to the pelvis and the SI Joint.  We will palpate the landmarks of the pelvis and explore the mechanics of how it works in posture and locomotion, and finally work through a series of exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor and stabilize the pelvis and SI Joint.
