Today’s video is going to show you exactly what key exercises you need to do for your ideal pelvis and spine alignment.
There are many finer points to this alignment, more than we can cover in this short, 4-video series, but what you learn today is the most critical and can make the difference between really great body movement and problems you really don’t want.
Research has shown that when the pelvis is out of alignment, the core muscles don’t always turn on automatically when they’re needed and this causes other muscles to activate instead. This throws your whole body out of whack (that’s a technical term 😉 ) and that’s what can lead to lots of unnecessary problems. It can also make your other exercise routines less effective, or even harmful.
Now, before we dive into the core of today’s video, you need to know that there are two super-critical muscle groups that we’ll be working with in the coming weeks’ videos (your deep spine muscles and your deep abdominal support belt), but many people don’t get these important connections right because they skip the critical alignment that I’m going to show you today.
What I’m trying to say here is that today’s video is a big deal, so don’t skip it! 😀 Good alignment will make understanding and establishing core connections easier, more natural and automatic.
After today’s video you’ll know exactly how to find your ideal alignment. I recommend using a mirror when you’re first getting used to what your ideal alignment feels like. That way you can feel and see your ideal alignment at the same time.
Retraining my own alignment patterns has been a long process that has taken some getting used to! But, luckily, my ideal alignment patterns now feel normal, at least most of the time. 🙂
This process may seem simple, but it holds some very powerful benefits for you that you can’t get any other way. If you have trouble with it, or if you have any “AHA!” moments, be sure and let me know in the comments below. I’d love to hear about it either way and I’m here to help if you have questions!
See you in the studio,
