What is Neutral Spine
It’s the basic position your back is in when you’re lying on your back on the floor, naturally!!!
Great posture is easy to achieve and maintain – plus a healthy body image & having less pain are what most people want.
Of course, some people have variations in their spinal curvature, but many conditions can be improved with work and attention to spinal positioning.
Are you camera ready?
Not to sound creepy, but if you were caught ion camera when you weren’t ready or looking – what would your posture look like?
The more you practise anything, the better you get at it – good or bad….
We want to strengthen that neutral curve, so in my workouts and wellness seminars, I put a ton of focus, reminders & effort into my clients awareness. We do all of our strength training, core work, upper & lower body work in NEUTRAL SPINE for that reason.
Rounded upper back
Rounded lower back
These all are ok for stretching but not for strengthening!
I want you getting stronger in the RIGHT position. The more you do something, the better at it you get!!!
Lie on the floor.
Pretend you’re lying on a nice smooth, freshly combed white sand beach!
Think of what body parts would leave an imprint in the sand…..
Legs……..oh…. And of course – your Margarita!!!
But seriously, your lower back wouldn’t be PRESSED into the sand. You have a NATURAL LOWER BACK CURVE = that’s “neutral spine”!
I want you to maintain your great lower back neutral spine, not FLATTEN IT OUT!
