I feel the need for a fresh post. This is directly related to the “debate” I use that terms loosely about nutation and counter nutation of the sacrum that has been going on in the blogosphere. As of late, right here on my own.
I have been contemplating my own writings and particularly my last post to come to some basic agreement about the movement of the SI joint. It brings up a larger issue of what is “real”? I’m not going to get too esoteric about this but what is the balance between subjective and objective reality as it relates to our own body?
As a preface, there was an original question asking if someone could explain what nutation and counternutation actually were and how it might relate to backbending type postures such as ustrasana, kapotasana, and urdhva dhanurasana.
