forward lean when walking

Esther and/or team:
I’m not sure about leaning slightly forward when walking. When I experiment with that my lower back kills me. However, I can still push off with the back foot and remain upright, and totally engage my glutes. 
Does anyone have a comment on that, and thanks in advance. 
HAPPY NEW YEAR, and thanks Esther for all you know and share.

Hi Maxine.  I'm not an instructor but I was having that same problem when I finished the Elements course and occasionally have it now when I'm not paying attention to my body when walking (standing, sitting, etc. smiley ).  What I find really helps me when I feel the pain in my lower back is to check my rib anchor.  Sure enough when I engage that, my back feels better.  Sometimes I engage the inner corset if I really need to make sure I'm not hurting my discs.  Just a thought from a fellow student.

Today is January 1 2021 - HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Hi Colleen

Thanks for your response...I'll check that out for sure. I'm certainly not great at anchoring my ribs, so I know what you mean. Being in a body is such a challenge sometimes, isn't it? I'm also trying not to think about it too much and just walk naturally. That also helps. Cheers, Maxine
