The following exercises are designed for students who have taken sessions at our studio and are looking for an outline of basic movements they can practice at home or when traveling.
Lye on your back with your knees bent and your heel lined up with your sit bones.
Press into your heels while simultaneously drawing your pubic bone towards your navel. This scooping action should bring your lower back firmly into the floor. You are now in a Pelvic Tuck.
Release this position and roll your pelvis away from you allowing your lower back to get pulled up away from the floor. You are now in a Pelvic Anterior Tilt.
Rock back and forth between these two positions 6-10x. Rest in the center. Ideally there should be a tiny space under your lower back and your pelvis is level. This is called Neutral Pelvis. We will refer to this position many times throughout the fundamentals.
Place your hands on your lower ribs with your fingers in front and your thumbs behind. If this is not comfortable for your shoulders please adjust your hands to another position. As you breathe in fill up the side and back spaces between your ribs. As you exhale gentle squeeze your waist line while visualizing length from head to tail. Breath 6-10x

This exercise uses a Neutral Pelvis and the Posterior Lateral Breathing both described above. Breath in to prepare. As you exhale and engage the abdominals float one knee up to a table top position while keeping the pelvis quiet. Breath in again maintaining abdominal support and exhale moving the leg back down. Repeat on the other side. Keep pelvic motion to a minimum. Do 6 sets.
