Many experts consider the transversus abdominis to be the most important and most effective muscle for providing support for the lower back. It wraps around the waste and cinches in like a girdle, applying pressure as it squeezes, encouraging the spine to bend in a healthy way.

These core videos are amazing. I have been mystified in pilates and exremely frustrated. Now I have a base to build upon. I just wasn’t understanding my teacher saying pull the b line in, and therefore have been struggling in class. Thank you and I plan to practice with these tutorials in an effort to build my yoga and pilates to a most safe practice. You are the best!
