I found trying to relax was better for keeping still then trying to hold myself still.
Make sure you tell the person running it that you are having a bad day.
Best of luck

I agree with gotobef. Also, for me it worked better if they gave me headphones with music piped through them. That way, I was more likely to relax rather then holding myself still. Just a suggestion.

I'm sorry to just be seeing this. I always ask for a pillow under my knees; otherwise my low back hurts so bad and/or the si joint slips out of place and makes it hard to get up or walk. I hope it went well for you! 🙂💕🙏🌸
