All About the Psoas: 6 – Week Series For Tight Hips and Back
What is the psoas?
The psoas is the primary hip flexor muscle that attaches to the leg, pelvis, and mid/lower spine. It joins the iliacus muscle forming the iliopsoas to not only flex the hip, but also function as part of the core to stabilize the lumbo/sacral spine (lower back and sacroillac joint).
It is the most common culprit of back and pelvic pain and tight hip flexors.
Because of the attachment sites and relationships with many other muscles, it’s linked to poor breathing patterns, neck, back, hip, and pelvic health, stress, and internal organ function. Essentially, an unhealthy psoas effects the entire body.
This is a small group workshop style series designed to deepen your understanding of basic anatomy and the relationship between the psoas muscle, the upper and lower body, and posture.
A small group allows you an opportunity to ask questions and learn modifications specific to your body and current condition.
In this beginner friendly series, we’ll explore restorative yoga poses, mindful movement sequences, stretching techniques, and breathing practices to release tension and tightness, to activate the deep core muscles, and ultimately enhance overall health and well-being.
You’ll learn tips and tools to move with ease and freedom so you can continue to do the activities you enjoy as you age.
