Pilates
How do you feel about Pilates exercises?  I've been trying it in the last few months to get relief from minor recurring lower back pain.  It seems to help, but I'm wondering if it conflicts with what your book teaches?  (I've read your book and have been trying to apply the techniques.  I love what I've been able to do so far!)

The idea of strengthening muscles is great and pilates does that well. Unfortunately, a lot of pilates teachers teach a baseline pelvic position that is either very tucked or slightly tucked pelvis (which they call neutral). This is a big problem and can lead to disc damage over time. I also think many of the basic exercises strain the neck a great deal. It strikes me that Joe Pilates had excellent posture. The transmission seems to have been jagged. I know that there is at least one pilates school out there that agrees with me that most pilates is taught with a problematic pelvic position. I think it is great to have strong musculature, but I think it is important to be able to relax your muscles as a baseline. I like the analogy with lions - plenty strong, but very relaxed when they aren't in action. For yourself do what feels comfortable to your body AND makes sense.
