(Featured pic is proper form for hip hinge – others are examples of going too far) The “hip hinge” is the perfect natural movement exercise that can be done easily. The point is to feel and learn how to engage the muscles that attach to your pelvis/SI joint and knees and to help prevent or correct misalignment in the pelvis. Easier said than done when you are hypermobile – right? Yes, but small subtle “exercises” that help teach our bodies and brains to work together and engage the right muscles during the “natural movements” we do all day long,...Read More
I’ve made it no secret that I’m still working on regaining my strength & stamina from my most recent EDS spiral. Strength training is key when you are hypermobile – our muscles do what our connective tissues cannot. Finding ways to build muscle without adding stress to already unstable joints often becomes the difference between functioning or having to stay in bed with debilitating pain. Hence, why I love working out at Sculpt Studio. Everything about Sculpt: the Megaformer, the classes, the studio, Mary (the owner), the instructors and the community – rocks. I can often find parking easily. And,...Read More

‘A Chronic Pain–Management Conference for Healthcare Professionals – Shifting the Paradigm’ – Integrated Health Conference for Medical Professionals
‘A Chronic Pain–Management Conference for Healthcare Professionals – Shifting the Paradigm’ – by Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. Click conference info and registration link for more information. One of the concerns among EDS providers is the idea that chronic pain is viewed as a disease by many mainstream medical providers and even those in the integrative health and wellness community. The problem is that most providers do not look at the cause of the pain. A good example – my knee may be hurting because it’s dislocating or I have a damaged nerve or I have arthritis. Each of...Read More
