Learning what your pelvic tilt is and how to control it is probably one of the most important things I’ve learned!
There are 3 types of pelvic tilts.
If you have an Anterior pelvic tilt I bet you suffer from back pain!
If you have a Posterior Pelvic tilt I bet you suffer from back pain!
Now you’re in luck, there are so many simple little exercises to help get you back to a neutral pelvic tilt. However…. I am not going to sugar coat it… it can take ALOT of work. I personally had a posterior tilt for a long time, and it took me around 2 months to correct it! I am still correcting myself all the time.
I often talk about yoga and how it’s changed my life. How to solve this little problem? Cat-Cow pose is a very good start. With Cat-Cow you are tilting into posterior then anterior. You can do this while laying down on the floor. In fact that’s how I started! I laid on the floor and practiced tilting my pelvis.
This motion helps. There is more to it… but the basic idea is if you suffer from one, you need to be doing more of the other.
What I have noticed is that some women tend to stay in an Anterior tilt so their butt sticks out more and generally most people who say “I have no butt” normally have a posterior tilt. In the end it causes problems regardless!
So plug yourself in, turn that light on. Listen to that body, do you have back pain? One of the first things you should be checking is your pelvic tilt!
There are many things that can help you when you start correcting your posture! Trust me, the more you correct the more you problems you find! I am always finding new problems and ALWAYS correcting myself.
Keep at it everyone, and don’t forget if you need help I am just a quick message away 🙂
