Sitz Bone or Sits Bones

What The F... is your Sitz Bones?

We have all heard yoga teachers refer to the sitz bone in class. So what are they and why can't your teacher not just tell you to sit on your ass?


These bones are part of the pelvic bone named in Latin as The tuberosity of the ischium or ischial tuberosity.

I always find it a little too technical when teachers start naming specific bones and muscles especially for the general pubic. During teacher training even though we teach anatomy thoroughly we advise people to reference body parts that are easier for normal people who no nothing about anatomy to comprehend.

In case you were wondering this is where to locate the Sitz bones here is where they are.
