The Psoas muscle branches off the spine and traverses deep within the pelvis bilaterally. Come learn how to locate, access, and utilize the Psoas muscle as a supple, elastic link between the lower body, the core, and the upper body for deeper connection, spinal decompression, fuller breathing, and enhanced physiological health. When the Psoas works rigidly versus elastically, it can lead to severe back and hip pain. We will explore how the Psoas works in a multidimensional way as an integrative centering complex partnering the hamstrings, adductors, abdominals, and pelvic floor throughout the Pilates exercises on all apparatus. You will walk away with a clearer and deeper appreciation of the Psoas muscle and its significant role in healthy movement with concrete examples to apply to your teaching and self-practice.
