1. Find Your Base-Line Muscles.

Pelvic floor Base.  Rectus abdominis Line.

Working from Base-Line has changed my life. I feel better than I ever have before.

the base-line muscles pelvic floor and rectus abdominis shown in a human figure from the front and angled. The rectus abdominis muscles are like two ribbons that run parallel up the front of the abdomen from pubic symphysis of the pelvis (the bone between the legs) to the front of the chest, attaching to the rib cage i.e. they extend quite high. Each rectus abdominis is made up of sections of muscle, panels of muscular tissue separated by bands of connective tissue within each 'ribbon' two stacks of blocks.  The linea alba, a strip of tough connective tissue lies between the rectus abdominis muscles on the body's midline. Think pelvic floor base, Rectus abdominis line. Our core pillar of strength up the front of the abdomen.

Your Base-Line is your core pillar of strength, from where the rest of the body extends.

All movement should be supported by your Base-Line.

The position of the rest of your body is relative to your Base-Line.

the pelvic floor and  rectus abdominis muscles shown in human outline shown from the side. The pelvic floor is like a basket of muscles at the base of the body. The solid foundation needed for healthy movement. The pelvic floor is a crescent-shape on midline, the front attaching to the pubic symphysis from where the rectus abdominis muscles extend up the front of the body. The rectus abdominis, thin when seen from the side. Ribbon-like, sectioned into panels of muscle separated by connective tissue up the front of the abdomen. The body's central line.

human outline from above with the pelvic floor muscles in-situ.  Like a basket of muscle, slung between the bones of the pelvis - spanning the pelvic canal.  Several muscles, differing in shape and size, forming the basket. Left and right sides are symmetrical, with holes on the midline for the anus and genital outlets.

A basket of muscles that should be tight and secure at the root of all movement.

The body's central line, strong and flexible muscles from where the rest of the body extends. The rectus abdominis muscles should be fully extended. Engaged and elongated, supporting the rest of the body through a full range of natural movement.

Strong and flexible, supporting the rest of the body when fully activated and extended.

Technique Tips.

It takes time and effort to learn to use your body correctly. Keep your Base-Line in mind whatever you are doing.

Work on breathing with your Base-Line.

breathing technique

As you activate your Base-Line muscles, begin to use the roll-down action and move as feels natural.

the roll-down

Focusing on your Base-Line will increase your awareness of your posture so you can feel how to move in order to start releasing the pain and physical tensions on your body.

Keep working at it. Find your Base-Line and begin the journey to better health.

the key to healing

Become aware of when 'the wrong' areas of muscle activate. When you feel this happening - relax, breathe and focus on your Base-Line once more.

base-line muscles seen in outline of body. The rectus abdominis central line attaches right between the legs to the pubic symphysis of the pelvis, forming two parallel stacks of panels of muscle, separated by the linea alba.  Attaching to the costal cartilage of ribs 5 6 and 7 of the chest. Our core pillar of strength. Flexible and supportive.

Focusing on activating and extending your Base-Line will increase awareness of your state of body alignment and balance and develop your sense of conscious proprioception building the connection between body and mind.

Base-Line muscles in a human figure seen from the front, angled upwards. Base pelvic floor muscles are like a basket between your legs, the foundation at the base of the torso. The rectus abdominis muscles either side of the midline linea alba from pelvic symphysis to the chest wall. The rectus abdominis muscles consist of multiple sections of muscle tissue, panels side by side extending up the front of the abdomen. Active your Base-Line, thinking longer and stronger with every in breath starting from base, then section by section of the rectus abdominis.
