Office Pilates–Pelvic Tilts

Today you may be in the office or traveling in a car or on a plane. Either way, this is a good exercise to put the lower back at ease. It’s a small range of motion you can do seated in any confined space.

  • Sit up tall where ever you are and pull your belly button to your spine. Make sure you have a neutral spine–that means a slight arch in your lower back.
  • Inhale to stay
  • Exhale rock your pelvis by tucking your tail bone between your legs and flattening or lengthening your lower back. It is not a large range of motion.
  • Inhale rock back to neutral.
  • Repeat this exercise for as long as you like. You can’t do it too much. Do it throughout the day or whenever you feel pressure on your back.

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.
