Good pictures, Clear writing.
This book goes way beyond instructions to "do your Kegals exercises" explaining in great detail the anatomy and synergistic functions of the pelvis and why imbalances here affect posture, headaches, strength, and pain. I could not voluntarily control my coccyx but now I can Thanks to Eric Franklin and Pelvic Power
I still remember being in a Danskinetics class at noontime at the Kripalu Yoga Center in Lenox, Massachusetts back in the early 1990s, and the leader of the dance session that day who was a guy, said to us all, "Now you are going to discover something that you do not know you have...it's called a 'pelvis'." From that moment on, he took us through some agonizing exercises that made us understand many things about our anatomy that we just were not understanding before that. Eventually, I had the pleasure of taking a week of Danskinetics in August 1997 with Nateshvar Ken Scott, the fellow who designed the program at Kripalu, and it was great. Btw, if you purchase a Kripalu Yoga Gentle or Dynamic DVD, I appear at the end of the video while dancing on the lawn in a white shirt and tights with teal green shorts, and that video was shot on 31 August 1997.
I teach taiji and various moving meditations and have some knowledge of numerous martial arts and meditative body works that all consider subtle control of the pelvic floor muscles to be a critical step in internal energy work. Teaching or coaching a person to mentally discover, and then actively work with these muscles can be very difficult, for all the reasons Eric Franklin outlines in this book. If the only thing that I got from this book was improving my repertoire of images for working with students it would have been a great find. However, the most important aspect of this book was that I found his exercises helped me to improve my own connection with, and sensation into, these important integrators of my internal somantic space. I wish to express my sincere gratitude to the author for this book, the gratitude that a student feels towards a teacher when new learning blossoms. Thank you
