Forward bend (video)


This forward bend exercise builds on the trunk tilt videos in the previous post, and also the spinal elasticizer exercise which encourages the spinal vertebrae to work together in sequence to facilitate flexion. 
As always, as I am not present when you are doing this exercise do take appropriate care for yourself - especially if you have a medical condition that affects balance, such as Meniere's disease or benign positional vertigo - as you are responsible for your own safety. Take it slow; only bend forward as far as you feel comfortable; then press through the feet and uncurl slowly beginning from the bottom of your spine with your head coming up last. 


The image I show comes from The Power and the Grace by Joanne Elphinston (2019).
 Please note that due to the Covid-19 lockdown the video was made in my home rather than the Clinic.
