Transverse Abdominus

Anatomical Function: The Transverse Abdominus stabilizes the pelvis and thoracic (middle) spine.

Tango Function: Supports upright posture, gently, leaving hip flexors relaxed and hips flexed.

This is not an accurate drawing; the transverse is much closer to the spine.

If you have pilates equipment, you can do the “elephant” exercise with a reformer or a ball or try wool socks on a smooth floor.
