Mariel will speak at Lecture on Thurs. She says, "I became interested in the and how unique it is in humans. I wanted to learn more about how our bodies 'know' how to build bones that are uniquely human."

Next workshop is on the 19th May with taking us on a journey into the : 'The Transformatory Power of the Pelvis'. Only 5 more days to take advantage of Early Bird Rate.

Upright open is ideal for locating the exact cause of dysfunction. You are scanned seated normally and asked to ‘push down’ - straining into the so that any can be evaluated

Spotlight on: Non-Radiographic Axial Spondylarthritis. For the next few days, we will focus on this not well-known condition, which is an autoimmune disease that causes in the & , & affects around 30,000 Australians. Learn More:

random confession: Earthling Bowie..COULD GET IT!!!!


Today I found something very special: the skull and pelvis of a deer! I was picking up litter in the reeds along the shore where not many people go, and there they were! They’re perfect and I love them so much, but I have a few questions. I didn’t look around because I was too excited, but why could there ONLY be a skull and a pelvis? And is there any symbolism around finding those two bones together?

hey! can i please get good references of like, simplifications of leg muscles and i guess legs in general? probably the pelvis too, the lower body is just killing me right now. (i mean in art, my own legs are fine =P)

No problem, anon! Here are some notes on legs that I’ve picked up, but there are probably some more thorough ones (with actual muscle names lol) floating around the web if you want to check those out as well. Just remember to balance curve/straight on either side. 

***EDIT: The stick figure thing is called “crickets” by the creator because they look like cricket legs. I just remembered that.***

Here are some of my favorite guides to muscle simplifications by Will Weston and Sycra Yasin:

And for good measure, here’s some refresher on more gestural ways of looking at limbs:

The Pelvis

In our experiential anatomy class today we studied the structure our pelvis. 

We did an exercise to engage and release the iliopsoas.

  • one knee bent in constructive rest position, the other leg lengthened.
  • Turn out the lengthened leg and lift it up at a 45 (degree) angle and lower.

After doing the exercise my leg felt longer, there was more length in my leg and my soas felt relaxed. 

I found it interesting looking at and feeling the connection between the hips/pelvis and the legs/feet.

I came across something on here that said something about a pelvic tilt (?)in regards to HRT.So will HRT change in how your pelvis/hips sit ? On the post it said they had discomfort & pain in their hips/pelvis & ppl told them that they had more of a swaying in their walk & their butt stuck out more (they’re taking estrogen,HRT) so since I’m afab if I go on T will my pelvis/hips change somehow like that persons did just in a different way or reverse ? I’ve never heard of this & confused

Followers say:

Finallaw said: If im understanding the question right, no HRT should directly affect something like that. Estrogen doesn’t automatically make someone walk with a sway in their hips or something similar with testosterone. While consciously or unconsciously walking in a different manner is probably the cause and it can happen for a number of reasons. Like trying to walk in a manner more common to your gender could do it. Also unless you’re on hrt before/during your “first” puberty, hormones aren’t gonna change your bone shape. Even if you are on hrt at a young age, its hard to say what the difference could be.
