When: June 25, 2022
Day:  Saturday 
Time: 9:00 am -10:30 am (Eastern Time Zone)
Price: $20.00 

Psoas and Lower Back Health
The sanskrit word sankalpa means resolution or intention. The intention for this class is to become aware of and resolve structural imbalances at the lower core, so that we feel stable, secure, and grounded in your inner strength and power. 

The psoas muscles attach to the sides of the five (5) lumbar vertebrae as well as the twelfth thoracic vertebra and span the length of the inner groin where they attach at the inner femur (thigh) bone.  The psoas muscles are the only lower core muscles that directly attach to the lower legs, span the inner pelvis, and finally attach to the vertebra of the lower spinal column. These muscles are “hidden” in the unconscious and not easy to feel. Thus, our yoga practice will isolate these muscles and bring them into our conscious. 

Our goal is that when you awaken the psoas muscles, so you feel more stable and connected to your core – your place of inner power and strength. 

Also, if you experience lower back pain it may be due to weakened psoas muscles or even weakened gluteus muscles. So, our yoga practice will also target strengthening  and relaxing the psoas muscles and glutes (buttock muscles), so that you experience pain relief in your lower back.

Benefits include:

  • Upright posture
  • Pain relief in the lower back
  • Relieve tight psoas muscles 
  • Improvement in overall body alignment
  • Increased hip flexibility and movement
  • Increased lower core and abdominal strength
  • Increased balance and confidence
  • A sense of feeling connected, grounded, and safe

Pranayama: Alternate nostril breathing.

Asanas: Standing poses to awaken the psoas, Twists to release the psoas, Supported Inversions and Forward Folds to lengthen the psoas, and Domes to create expanse in the psoas muscles.

Restoratives: Relax in your favorite restorative pose. Suggested Restoratives include Setu Bandha Sarvangasana and Savasana. 

Healing Injury? For those who have a history of injury or trauma and notice that the effects of the minor/major injuries are beginning to interfere with your everyday lives, please note that all of the yoga classes are naturally healing.

Each yoga class is designed to help release stored pain, anxiety, stress, or tension you may be experiencing so that vital, healing energy – prana – can move freely through the entire body. When vital energy is flowing freely (not obstructed), you experience positive emotions, revitalized energy, mental clarity, lightness, pain relief, and an overall sense of well-being.
