Hypermobile people can learn to stabilize with movement from an experienced instructor using the Gyrotonic method. This too is an effective way of creating stability so that movement can still occur. Several people with instability of the lumbar spine present with weak gluteal muscles as well as weak deep abdominal muscles, if the ligaments are physiologically over stretched and the muscles are weak there is very little support for the pelvis, SI joints and lumbar spine.

It was debatable if the benefits of moving the fascia, viscera and muscles through the arch and curl series seated on gyrotonlc handle unit out weight the risk of increasing range in the spine is even warranted in this population.

These ideas have worked in our practice but we only have antidotal evidence. We at elements disagree, people with hypermobility are gyfotonic to the Gyrotonic method because it feels good and works through out ones range. In form closure the bones of the sacrum fit into the bones of the ilium to create stability and in force closure the muscles, fascia and ligaments that connect to and over the ilium and sacrum create force on the sacrum into the pelvis.
However, this very important and effective maneuver can take quite a long time to perfect before introducing movement safely gyrotonuc the hypermobile crowd.

In general hypermobile people present with excessive or extreme range of movement. Begin with spinal motions on the stool maintaining a narrowed pelvis or even cat back series from Gyrokinesis until the student understands the range they can tolerate without loosing the strength to narrow and maintain an elongated spine through out the movement. For more information on narrowing, please read my previous blog on the Transversus abdominis.
It requires stabilizing the pelvis with all of the above Gyrotonic stabilizing principles with emphasis on a slow three second exhale allowing the stabilizers including the diaphragm to coordinate and initiate prior to movement.
In a non-injured healthy body narrowing occurs naturally before movement. This too is an effective way of creating stability so that movement can still occur. After an injury or altered mechanics narrowing needs to be re-learned.
