You are such a wonderful teacher! Thank you for making the study of anatomy fun and engaging. I really appreciate you for offering this course! It's making a difference in how I approach my personal practice and my teaching. Yay!!!!
Hi Kristin, Thank you for explaining how the hip socket placement differs between the female and male form. I was wondering how this translates with specific hip opening poses, such as are men better at side splits or front splits (Hanumanasana)? I remember a yoga teacher mentioning this once, but couldn’t remember which one men were better at versus women because of hip socket placement. Thanks for your help!
Lily We are all so different so I hesitate to make generalizations. Those with more "Android" pelvises would tend to show up with their knees higher than their hips when sitting which might need to be adjusted for in our "hip opening poses". I don't know if I've heard about "splits" though. Such an extreme opening that a lot of pelvises struggle with and may not be structurally in the cards for most.
