    Position 3) Hold right knee with both hands, tuck chin and inhale deep (through nostrils). As you inhale, "push" knees while you "pull" with your hands. Hold for 4 counts, then exhale as you roll spine down until head rests on floor. Form check: keep arms straight as you "push/pull.

    Repeat for a total of 2 sets with right knee and 2 sets with left knee. Finish with three Rock 'N Rolls.

    Now that your spine is warm from increased blood flow, here is one of my copyrighted movements to strengthen your spinal insertions and increase their flexibility.

      T-Tapp Twist Spinal Sequence

      "Twist, Reach 'n Roll - Spinal Sequence" for Strength, Flexibility & Alignment looks a lot easier than it is - be extra careful to follow form to the finest detail. This type of movement is considered to be comprehensive and compounded since it involves several muscles as well as anatomical isolation of the lower body from the upper body.

      Starting Position: Feet should be 12"-14" apart (under hips)...

Form Check: hands and elbows should be as close to the floor as possible with chest out and shoulders pushing back. The vertebrae between shoulder blades as well as lower spine should be pushing flat into the floor; tighten arm muscles to set position. Do not relax arms on the floor.

      Tuck, Reach & Pull

      Rock 'N Roll

      Tuck chin inward to chest area, curl the spine and gently rock/roll as shown in these photos.

      Form check: use your knees and thigh muscles to "push" against your hands to initiate the "curl". Continue 4 to 8 times, you should feel the spine muscles begin to relax and get warm as circulation increases. For those who are a little more advanced, try to pause as you roll up without touching feet to the floor and extend...
