Yoga Therapy for Your Psoas

with Jaime Stover Schmitt

Style: Yoga Therapy

Duration: 30 min

Intensity: Low

Props: Blanket, Bolster, Chair

Class Description

In this blend of tutorial and practice, you’ll learn about the anatomy of the psoas and the other hip flexors and their function, as well as the lifestyle and postural habits that can contribute to tightness in the region, and, in turn, affect the health of your lower back. 

You’ll begin with a walking warm-up and then move into reclined and standing range-of-motion exercises and a sweet bolster-supported psoas stretch. 

If you have ankle weights, a theraband, an eight-pound weight or stone, and a step platform at home, have them on hand for this class; however, you can do all of the movements without them. 

Enjoy this focused practice and the opportunity to learn about the psoas and how to keep it strong and mobile.
