Incorporating exercises on beach trip
Hi Esther,   I'm going on a beach trip soon and I was wondering if it's okay for me to walk on the beach with the L5 disc protrusion that I have and if you have any tips on stretchsitting or stertchlying at the beach and tips on being comfortable on a hotel mattress.   I initially got a lot of relief from lessons 1 and 2 which I have been working on for the past three weeks and this week I started learning and practicing lessons 5 and 6 but for the past four nights my lower back and my right leg have started hurting again and I also feel it during the day. I have felt increasing swaying in my back while stretchlying and feet discomfort when practicing tallstanding. Thanks

Could it be that in tallstanding you are letting your pelvis antevert too much? If you tip forward a lot in the squatting step, you may find that your rib anchor action cannot compensate and flatten out the resultant sway adequately. You may want to stick with Ch1,2 and 5 a bit longer before going to 6 (tallstanding) to make sure you have all the length you need to make your experiments with anteverting the pelvis safer and smoother. You can also start on the buttock squeezing step of glidewalking, which will naturally, gently and progressively settle your pelvis more tipped forward. On the beach you have the advantage of being able to fashion the sand into the shapes you need to support your body. You can create sand "pillows" for under your knees and under your shoulders/head when you are lying on your back. When you are sitting, createj a sand pedestal for yourself so you don't end up tucking your pelvis and use your fists on the ground to lengthen your back. Walking on the beach can be very helpful for helping build the muscles in your feet. And your disc protrusion doesn't make walking on the beach a problem. It's strange that stretchlying suddenly doesn't feel good. Perhaps it's what you are doing the rest of the day or that you have changed the way you are approaching stretchlying. There shouldn't be a sway in your back from stretchlying. Maybe you are being too conscientious about leaving your pelvis tipped forward. Let go of this aspect a bit and focus on creating extra length. It's better to slightly tuck (you can tolerate a slight tuck with the extra length you create) than to hold your pelvis right and miss out on lengthening your back. It's awkward to get both anteversion in the pelvis and length in the spine to happen in the beginning though eventually that is the ideal.

Hi Esther, Thank you so much for the tips. You're absolutely right; I've noticed that since I started practicing tallstanding I've been obssessing about anteverting my pelvis enough. Well apparently I have been overdoing it and it had affected my stretchlying also and has given me increasing pain for the past five days. I got a lot of relief last night because I did not antevert my pelvis too much and I've had a better day than yesterday. I'll follow your suggestions about the lessons and the beach trip and I'll let you know how it goes. Thank you so much!
