Side to side pelvic tilts on the stability ball is a great corrective exercise and appropriate awareness exercise for your client to make sure that they understand what the lateral flexion of the pelvis feels like while he or she keeps the shoulders still. Start by shifting your weight into one hip or one buttocks on the ball. If you keep your shoulders still, it causes your spine to laterally flex on the other side. Then you'll reverse that and come back in the opposite direction. As you laterally flex each time, the pelvis raises on that side and then shifts to the other side and comes up again. You'll get lateral flexion of the spine and keep good stability with the vertical alignment of the upper portion of the spine.
