Hips & shoulders parallel to the floor. Posterior pelvic tilt. Use wall/chair for balance if necessary

Hips & Shoulders squared and parallel to the floor. Lower back is straight. Careful not to slip into an anterior pelvic tilt. Start with your front knee over your front heel. From here gently pushing it outwards without changing the position of your hips.

Both knees, standing foot and pubic bone in line. Move side ways only.

Both knees, standing foot and pubic bone in line. Push the side of the hip where the knee touches the floor diagonally down

Back is straight or even sligthly arched. Anterior pelvic tilt. Pull your belly button towards your locked knees.

Legs hip width apart. Feet pointing towards the front with locked knees. Lower back is straight or even arched. Work on your anterior pelvic tilt to lengthen the hamstrings!
