Leaning forward is something you do all day long whether you are getting in and out of a chair or out of a car, while sitting at a computer or when squatting to pick up something from the floor.

Key points about leaning forward from sitting position:

  • You are not moving from your hip joint sockets but from the connection of your sitting bones with your seat.
  • Your hip joint sockets do need to release for the movement to happen
  • Moving from your hip joint sockets makes you use your midback in the process which is not serving you.
  • You can use your thumbs on the most releasable part of your hip joint sockets when leaning forward as a reminder to soften them.
  • The most releasable part of your hip joint sockets is situated lower and in the front center of your body, on each side of your pubic bones
  • When leaning with released hip joint sockets: 

           – Your spine organically softens into its length           – Your buttock muscles relax automatically           – Your lower back expands naturally

And, as a result:           – Your head and tailbone soften away from each other effortlessly.
Leaning forward while going up and down in space is what keeps you balanced above your feet when done as designed by your body intelligence. More about this is covered in the next part of this course.
