Pelvic Rock, Sitting

Picture of how to do the sitting pelvic-rock exercise
  1. Sit in a comfortable, neutral position, with your feet flat on the floor and your buttocks near the front of the seat.
  2. Gently roll your shoulders forward. Feel the weight move backward on your "sit" bones.
  3. Now straighten up slowly, rolling your hips and lower spine forward while your shoulders move back up.
  4. Repeat 8 to 12 times, gently rocking your pelvis backward and forward.
