Yoga & Beyond | The Yoga and Movement Science Podcast
About This Show
I started this podcast to provide access to engaging interviews and discussions with thought-provoking, idea-shaping professionals and to stimulate our thinking about WHY and HOW we teach and practice. For me, the "beyond" part reflects the bigger picture of movement, anatomy, biomechanics and wellness. I interview authors, biomechanists, physical therapists, pilates teachers, rolfers, chiropractors, yoga teachers, anatomy teachers and more, all with the goal of sharing ideas about the body and how we move. I feel that there's a lot of misinformation out there in the yoga world (and fitness world) and my goal is to cut through that and provide more science based info. More Science. Less Woo Woo!

Y&B #52 - Proximal Stability for Distal Mobility
4 days ago
Proximal stability for distal mobility is a principle that’s often used in corrective exercise, manual treatment and personal training. Generally, it means that working on core stability can affect distal joints, providing more mobility. This is logical. A stable core may allow for less chaos in the periphery. In this episode Jenn Pilotti and I discuss 2 studies that look at how proximal strengthening impacts the knees and ankles of female athletes. The first study looks at the effect core stability has on landing kinematics for female Capoeira practitioners; the second looks at what strengthening the hip does for high school female basketball players with history of ankle injury. These studies support the notion that core stability in the lumbo pelvic hip complex affects the knees and ankles.
