Happy Wellness Wednesday! The glute bridge is our Pilates instructor Lauren's favorite exercise. Great for low back pain by activating the core, glutes, and hamstrings.
Come try it out in our new Pilates neutral spine mat class Wednesdays at 5 pm. .
Things to watch for: *Ribs popping out, losing connecting between the pelvis and ribcage. Think of rotating the pubic bone higher in the sky while you reach your bottom ribs towards your pelvis.
*Feet too far out too close to your rush: try to keep knees directly over your feet.
*Knees falling in or out of alignment with the hips, over-activation of the low back and shoulders. Try a small ball, yoga block, or rolled up towel/sweatshirt to keep the knees aligned while activating the inner thighs. OR a Pilates ring or theraband/theraloop around the outside of the thighs to activate the ABductors.
