I read the chapter "stretchlying on your side" about 3 times, but I still don't understand all the steps.
1) On p98, step 2: Position your pelvis: Lift your hips off the bed and tip your pelvis forward into anteversion. Does this mean you lift both your hips off the bed? I tried this but it's almost impossible on a mattress with soft latex or tempur. And does this also mean you create a sway back on purpose? Which will then be removed as indicated in the book?
2) On p99, step 3: Position your arms to give you leverage: Do you use both arms? On the image it looks like she's only using 1 arm? Do you place your hand the same as on the images? And additionally it says to engage your abs, but is this the same kind of movement you do when preparing for stretchsitting? Keeping your neck flexed and upper abs engaged?
3) On p99, step 4: Push your upper body up and away from your lower body: Do you push hard or just gently? When pushing hard, I feel like my hips sink even deeper in the bed and although I get a better stretch, it feels weird.
4) On p103, step 12: Lengthen your neck: If your chin/head is slightly angled down, will this also prevent you from having eyebags ? ( question from my mom , i can't help it ;-) )
She uses a cervical pillow now but she wants to change to a "soap shaped" natural latex pillow so she can do the neck lengthening.
I hope anyone can help me out here! Maybe with a small video or picture?
Thank you very much!
