Join Sally for this exciting opportunity to open your hips, back, and side body in a deep and profound way. We’ll use passive yin yoga postures as well as a few active yang postures to first find, and then release, the Psoas muscle. A tight Psoas can lead to all kinds of pain and discomfort, including lower back pain, general tightness in the hips, slouching while seated or standing, and unnecessary fear and anxiety. This often elusive muscle tightens up whenever we feel threatened, and in our modern society this happens to most of us on a daily basis. Even simple things like waking up late and rushing out the door, or being overwhelmed by the number of emails we have to respond to puts us in “fight or flight” mode and causes the Psoas to tighten. The psoas also tightens up when we sit too much or drive too much. Come explore how slowing down, going deep, and being soft can change how you feel on a physical, mental and emotional level. This class is appropriate for all levels.
