To avoid such harm, it is necessary to first be aware of your order in different postures. In forward flexion, it is important to cultivate the awareness of moving your sacrum and ilium as a unit. For example, in Janu Sirsasana’s single leg head to knee forward bend pose, when entering the pose, tilt the ilium on the side of the bent leg slightly towards the direction of the extended leg’s foot. This allows the ilium to push the sacrum to move together as a unit. When the ilium is no longer downward, do not continue to bend forward further. In the same twist posture, it is also important to find a sensation that allows the sides of the pelvis to rotate along the spine, so that the sacrum and ilium can be an inseparable unit..

This posture may alleviate symptoms of sacroiliac joint pain, as it can apply asymmetric forces to the sacroiliac joint. Slowly enter to make sure you feel okay, and if there is any pain, stop and don’t do it again.

Adjust the center of gravity and hip angle to find a position where your sacroiliac joint feels most comfortable..

After each practice, you need to use the appropriate posture from these two poses again to strengthen the stability of the sacroiliac joint. You can also practice this sacroiliac joint stabilizing posture for a period of time, or even a few years, to enhance the stability of the sacroiliac joint..
