Engaging the Abdomen…Properly! – with Barbara Stamis

In this first segment of a series of 3 you will learn to properly engage the abdomen, while learning to differentiate movement between your hip joints from your spinal and pelvic joints. It is a great prep for more advanced abdominal work or for a deep yoga or Pilates practice. These basic tools will stabilize, strengthen and give health to your spine! Once you have mastered this segment, you can look forward to moving onto the Intermediate Abdominal Series. Please note: If you are experiencing low back pain or have an acute injury, please consult with a doctor or physiotherapist prior to performing the sequence. It may also help to go over some of this work with a private instructor. If you have Osteopenia or Osteoporosis, please keep the head down, eliminating the chest lift and do not perform the roll down or roll up. (You may also place a pillow or book under the head if the neck is tight and chin is higher than your nose while lying down.)
