BRIDGING
This is the one of a physiotherapist’s staple exercises, if in doubt…bridge 😂
Often when children are growing, they come up against muscle imbalances, which can lead to aches and pains. A great way to protect the body from these is by keeping a good strong core!
A tip my top #pilates friend showed me was rolling the spine up and down, like a Mexican wave 👋🏽! Go follow @excellencepilates @excellence_physio for much more specialist knowledge than I can offer 😁

HOW TO INCORPORATE INTO PLAY
Get some lovely little cars or animals on one side of your child, and help them create a BRIDGE (!) so you can drive those little toys under their bottom!
….a traffic jam can always help you keep their bottom up for little longer 😏
