There are 33 vertebrae in our spine and between each vertebra is a disc made of tough cartilage with a fluid center.

The spinal cord is the highway for communication between the body and the brain! It also has incredible memory, so it is important to take care of the spine from a young age.
Weight
Managing your weight can help you prevent many ailments.

Having excessive weight is hard on your joints and makes it difficult to keep good posture.
Look straight
Chin down a little
Shoulders rolled back and relaxed
Chest relaxed & open, breathing effortlessly
Core engaged
Arms hanging naturally
Knees not locked
Weight balanced on both feet

Rolling Back
Lay on your back, gently bring knees in one at a time towards your chest. Hug your knees together if possible, then lift your head as you breathe in. Bring your head down gently as you breathe out. Repeat 3 times.

In that position, rock back and forth for 10 counts and side-to-side for 10 counts.

If you can, start from a sitting position holding your knees.

Get on your hands and knees and relax your head. First move your torso side to side with your head dropped.

When you have an astute sense and awareness of your spine, you can take care of it better.

Same goes for your mind and emotions! When you can catch yourself being too tired or off balance, you can meditate, stretch and nourish yourself accordingly.
