HAVE YOU LOST YOUR SITTING BONES?
Your Sit-bones or bum-bones, whatever you want to call them! 🤷♂️ are really useful particularly if you are working on a office seat or if you are a musician like a pianist.
🌟 So, how do we find our sit-bones? Easy! Find a nice and comfy chair (padded if poss), take your hands and slide them in from the side, palm up, under your backside, and feel around for the two round bones. They’re in there, I promise! 💯
🌟 Sit-bones are bones in your butt for sitting on, they are there to support you when you are sitting, just like you have feet for standing on! They're your feet for your seat.
🌟 When you have found them, have a big slump and notice that they disappear in front of your hands and they're not supporting you, then try sitting up far too straight so that they disappear away behind your hands. You will notice you can hardly breathe 💨 and they aren't supporting you anymore either and it's far to tiring!
🌟 You can tell, somewhere in the middle is where those bones are and if you get them in the right place you'll have good support for a relaxed neutral spine, letting your sit bones rest into your chair, leaving your spine nice and long, and your head balancing freely on top of that nice long comfortable spine. Yay! Well done 🙌
