A free and happy psoas allows the body to move with peak efficiency and little strain. Your psoas muscle is the main hip flexor of the body and the main engine of walking. It is essentially responsible for holding us upright while standing. Issues with the psoas can lead to any number of problems throughout your body—both physical and emotional. Lower back pain and other joint discomfort as well as disturbances to the nervous system can be linked to the psoas. This is not a yoga class. You will spend the afternoon awakening, learning about and releasing the Iliopsoas muscle group and understanding its core function within the body. Jonathan FitzGordon is author of Psoas Release Party! and creator of the CoreWalking Program. He is psoatically obsessed and thinks the psoas is the answer to any question about the body. 5 (20% discount for Abhaya Members)Pre-Registration Required
