Want more information on your pelvis and spine position and where you are in space? #pilates and PCS can help!


Specifically, check out our first #summerworkshop (July 14, #signuponline) discussing #fundamentalpilates principles, their shapes and applications including: #neutralpelvis, #neutralspine, #pilatesflatback, #ccurve and the infamous #loadedforwardflexion. #signuponline #spaceislimited

⭕️IS BUTT WINK BAD ?⭕️


Let’s start by saying that “neutral spine” doesn’t mean a fixed position.. rather, it means a range where the spine can move (flex/extend) without troubles.


Quite infact, if you’ve ever squatted ATG (ass to grass) you’ve noticed your pelvis rolling backwards at the bottom and no matter how hard you try not to, if you really want to get deeper, you’ll have to. But, is that a bad thing?


The problem comes when the lumbar flexion exceeds the “neutral range” and it becomes evident. That’s where problems start to happen.


Bottom line: IF you’re keeping your chest up, back tight & neutral, and squatting the weight through your legs... the butt wink won’t be a problem.


On the other hand, if you’re actually squatting the weight up wih your back, well, you need to re-evaluate your technique!”
