This post from Nightcat jumped out at me:
I need to get my body into balance and would like to learn more about this pelvic power--I venture to say this is the first time I have heard "pelvic power" associated with skiing, publicly anyway.
|In his book "Pelvic Power for Men and Women," Eric Franklin explains a series of mind/body exercises for stength, flexibility, posture and balance. Franklin, who has an extensive practice based in Zurich, talks about a deep body awareness that can assist in rewiring posture and movement patterns. Both of these guys are talking about taking months, or longer, to make corrections, which means most people won't even begin to do what they advise. But the benefits would go well beyond skiing. A lot of weaker skiers, golfers, tennis players and runners don't know their bodies are out of balance. They also don't know how to move. So, they struggle against themselves, having to always overcompensate with one set of muscles that work against the others doing the motion. They end up being slugglish, awkward and frustrated. The problem is, generally only elite athletes have the time, money and access to this kind of body reeducation. The average person ends up thinking they were born with the wrong stuff, which isn't the case.|
