WHAT ABOUT THAT TAILBONE? The tailbone affects the alignment of the whole spine! A misaligned tailbone is caused by weak, tight muscles in the pelvic floor. This creates an imbalance in the pelvis that can; Shift your body weight to one leg; Throw your neck out of balance; Shift the weight of your body from your bones on to your muscles affecting bone calcium; Causes your muscles to tighten and shorten along your entire spine. This is why Svaroopa Yoga begins with poses to help realign your tailbone, then moves to poses that open and lengthen the muscles along your entire spine. This helps eliminate both mental and physical stress, while providing new paths of muscle memory to keep your core open and your body free of pain.
