This workshop will combine both theory and practical work:
• Learn the functions of the (two) psoas and iliacus muscles
• Release your lower back, free your neck and relax your shoulders
• Enjoy full flexibility in your hip joints and spine
• Improve your ability to balance, feel more grounded and stable
• Create more ease of movement in walking, running and sitting
• Feel grounded and balanced and ready for effortless movement
The psoas as a true core muscle hugs the lumbar spine. Awareness and proper training of the psoas creates good spinal and pelvic alignment and liberates the lower back and hip joint. Recent research reveals the psoas as two separate units, deep and a superficial . In this workshop we will use imagery and movement protocols to activate and balance the functions.
In a next step we include other core muscles in this synergy, the transversus abdominis and deep multifidus. Furthermore, the psoas, diaphragm and pelvic floor are developmentally and functionally interrelated.
As movement educators we need to have a good understanding of the psoas role in movement, stability and balance
