Need to abandon some of my current stretches & exercises?
This is related to the yoga thread. I've already discovered the importance of an anteverted pelvis and yet find myself falling into the "neutral" pelvic position much more habitually that I would have thought I would, since I'd only been working on that for a few months. What struck me today is that I think some of the exercises my PT gave me are actually causing me to go into the neutral pelvis more regularly. I'd been trying to continue my PT exercises and add in your program, but now I'm seeing they are probably in conflict. One example is the "dead bug". Are you familiar with it? You lie on your back knees bent, place your pelvis in "neutral", contract your lower abdominal muscles and the march your feet up and down. I've been doing that 3 mins. a day and think maybe I need to stop that and others. In fact, I'm considering giving up my other exercises and going completely with your program for now. I'm swaybacked and as attached as I am to things like the half bridge pose, I'm hearing your advice about not doing things to stretch those ligaments further. Well, just reflecting here. I think I'm at a crossroads where I need to choose one approach or the other, and yours makes such total sense (not to mention how much it's helped just to stand with an anteverted pelvis...)

Dying bug is a good exercise. Try not to retrovert (tuck) your pelvis ("neutral" to me is anteverted). Even if you do tuck a little it shouldn't be a problem since you are lying down, hopefully stretchlying, and there isn't significant compression in your discs. I actually teach dying bug as a variation of the rib anchor strengthening exercises. the main emphasis is to press the back of your ribcage against the mat. Bridge pose is tricky. You want to avoid tucking the pelvis and/or swaying the back. Not easy to do, but worthwhile trying.

It's all in how you do these, isn't it. I'll try the half bridge that way and dying bug as you indicate. I wasn't taught to press the back of the rib cage against the mat. My PT had me tucking my pelvis  in every exercise possible! Thanks for taking the time to respond!

I am beginning to see some o fthe same issues (even though I have just started the program)..my PT also wants tucked pelvis with "dead bugs". The ribs to the floor os a bit new for me and will take some learning. Joan
