Start: (Same as Pelvic Tilt Start)

  • Lying on your back
  • Knees bent, feet flat on the floor, hip width apart
  • Arms down by your sides

Movement:

  • Contract your abdominals and begin to do a slight pelvic tilt
  • Contract your glutes (bum muscles) and lift your hips off the mat until your body is in a straight line from your knees to your shoulders
  • Be sure not to arch the back by keeping the abdominals pressing down throughout the movement
  • As you begin to lower your body back down to the mat, contract the upper abdominals and roll through the spine, lowering one vertebrae at a time.
  • Tailbone touches the mat last
  • Exhale as you lift off the mat
  • Inhale as you return to the starting position
