I’m sharing a fun little exercise that promotes pelvic stability which ultimately means engaging that deep abdominal muscle known as the Transversus Abdominis, aka TA, aka invisible corset. This amazing abdominal muscle is responsible for pelvic stability during movement and that protects the back 🤗 It’s arguably the most important ab muscle but the one that no one knows about or doesn’t care about because people think six pack equals strong core.. WRONG – that has to do with body fat composition which does not always correlate with a healthy body. Any ways- that’s a topic for another time .. 😬

This particular exercise challenges that pelvic stability by adding unstable surfaces. That’s a great way to practice engaging that TA. Think about scooping the belly up and in. Or imagery I often use is “imagine you have a string draped across your hips and each end is tied to each hip. Imagine Trying to pull the string taught.”

I would love to hear other instructors verbal cues for engaging the TA!

Instructor Tips-
1️⃣ Before you begin, ensure you engage your TA
2️⃣ Hands on your hips so you can feel for a “wobbly” pelvis
3️⃣ Move slowly and do your best to maintain a nice fluid motion
4️⃣ maintain neutral pelvis (don’t jam back into Mat)
