Demystifying the Psoas
The psoas muscles are the deepest muscles in our body. They are the link between our spine, diaphragm and legs and act as messengers between our inner selves and the outer world. They are involved in almost every movement we make - walking, running and sitting and provide important pathways for neural messages.
Whilst they are extraordinarily sensitive and responsive, we often find it difficult to consciously feel them, or even know where they are within our bodies. When we’re tired, over-worked or emotional, they may become unbalanced and tense, potentially causing a wide range of symptoms including lower back pain, stress, postural imbalances and contributing to exhaustion and poor digestion.
Join this workshop to understand more about these most emotional of muscles, and:
∗ Improve your understanding of the structure and role of the psoas in the body
∗ Discover the connection between the psoas and the breath
∗ Learn why you should never stretch your psoas and why it doesn’t need strengthening
∗ Find out how to soothe and release your psoas safely
∗ Let go of long held tensions which may help relieve lower back pain and improve your psychological well-being
