Master Psoas: Untapped Potential for Asana Mastery
Saturday, October 26, 2019
Venue: Lincoln Financial Studio
The psoas muscle (fully known as the iliopsoas) is a crazy-cool ropelike muscle that runs from the front of the body to the back. One of the body’s most powerful hip flexors, it is also prone to being passively tight due to all of our time spent sitting down. When the psoas is chronically shortened, it affects your posture, possibly leading to hip, groin and lower back issues.
What really makes the iliopsoas so fascinating is how underutilized it is- while being passively tight, it is actively not very strong in many people. In this workshop, Lara will help you locate, strengthen and stretch this muscle, to tap into untouched potential in your yoga practice. Harnessing the strength of the psoas will enhance your practice and mastery of advanced postures, such as inversions and arm balances.
