|We all have our postural faults, especially if we lose focus. Mine is rib flaring, that tendency to jut the bottom ribs forward in a faulty attempt to open the chest or lengthen the body. This often results in excess back tension and pain.|
With mindfulness and an awareness of this tendency, I can better control this common error and so can you!
The secret is, no surprise, “connection”. I like to use the image of 2 vertical bungee cords connecting my front bottom ribs with my pelvis. Watch the video to test if you’re a rib flarer and learn 2 exercises to help fix it.
