Trunk tilt (video)

This exercise looks at how you are using your pelvis to carry your trunk forward. This is a wonderful foundation for doing a forward bend, which will be the next blog video, but it also explores sharing the forward bend movement with more of the body rather than asking just our spine to do all the work. One video explores the basic movement, the second one explores asking your spine and legs to join in. A practical use for this ability to bend from the hips, taking the sacrum with you rather than leaving it behind, is when we are walking or running uphill; it is more effective movement than curving forward from our midback as you see so many people doing.
As with all these videos, you are responsible for your own safety when doing these exercises so do be self aware. 

Please note that due to Covid-19 lockdown the video was made in my home rather than the Clinic.
