The Pelvis

The pelvis is a powerhouse of the body. I like to think of the pelvis as a bowl of water. If your pelvis is tilted too far back with the back flattened and the pubic bone lifted, water spills out the back of the pelvis. If your pelvis is tilted too far forward the pubic bone moves down and there is an increased curve in the back, water spills out the front of the pelvis. You can tilt your pelvis in both directions and then find a balance imagining that there is water in the pelvic bowl and balancing it there. You can also check side to side and see if you feel water is tipping out of one side of your bowl versus the other, working to find a balance in your pelvic floor from front to back and side to side is ideal.
