Several people with instability of the lumbar spine present with weak gluteal muscles as well as weak deep abdominal muscles, if the ligaments are physiologically over stretched and the muscles are weak there is very little support for the pelvis, SI joints and lumbar spine. Justine Elements Thoughts on health, fitness, and living a balanced life. For more information on narrowing, please read my previous blog on the Transversus abdominis.

Begin with spinal motions on the swries maintaining a narrowed pelvis or even cat back series from Gyrokinesis until the student understands the range they can gyrotonicc without loosing the strength to narrow and maintain an elongated spine through out the movement.
Perhaps introduce arch and curl series facing the tower with resistance to help activate tone in the muscles or standing so the ligaments can stay elongated and the legs active to help maintain stability with movement, which is the ultimate goal.

Combining the narrowing with the wrapping of the sacrum allows for the anterior sheath connecting gyrotonif the pubic bone via external oblique, internal oblique serjes Transverse abdominusthe posterior diagonal sheath gluteus maximus and biceps femorisand the longitudinal sheath multifidus, deep layer of thoracolumbar fascia and long head of biceps femoris in to the sacrotuberous ligament to all support the low back and pelvis.
We at elements disagree, people with hypermobility are drawn to the Gyrotonic method because it feels good and works through out ones range. Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email.

However, creating the sensation of internal traction for hypermobile people without hyperextending the knee or overstretching a capsule can be difficult for the beginner student to differentiate.

In general hypermobile people present with excessive or extreme range of movement. This too is an effective way of creating stability so that movement can still occur. These ideas have worked in our practice but we only have antidotal evidence. When done well the force goes right through the center of the bones through the heel, no pressure goes into the ligaments in the back of the knee.

Hypermobile people can learn to stabilize with movement from an experienced instructor using the Gyrotonic method.
In form closure the bones of the sacrum fit into the bones of the ilium to create stability and in force closure the muscles, fascia and ligaments that connect to and over the ilium and sacrum create force on the sacrum into the pelvis.

What we all agree on is that the body is an amazing creation with biodynamic, energetic and anatomical interrelationships that science has only begin to discover not to mention that 2 hours and a few emails just touch the surface of the benefits of the Gyrotonic method for people with hypermobility.
