Lay down supine (on your back) with your feet placed near your tailbone.  Place hands under the arch of your back, about 4 fingers should fit.  Remove fingers and feel the neutral spinal position.  Then, press the lower back down and round or tuck the tailbone while squeezing abdominals.  Next, arch the back and lift the tailbone while squeezing the back muscles.  Repeat, you can also do this movement standing.

How to do itStand tall with your feet hip-width apart. Begin turning your torso from side to side, allowing your arms to swing freely and limply (think of them as empty coat sleeves). Make fists and continue the torso and arm movements. Your fists will lightly bump your hips in the front and back."  Say (think) a mantra (affirmation) as your “gong ringing hands” ‘pound’ your body.  After one minute, relax your hands and slowly return to the starting position."Why it matters

Justin's family and mine have been really good friends for many years, a friendship that's more like some family you get to choose, which is how I earned the affectionate title as Justin's aunt Rachel.
