The Pathway of the Psoas 
May 16 | 2 - 4 p.m. | $30
Shannon Knorr 

In this virtual workshop, we will explore and discover the pathway of one of our deepest postural muscle groups, the Iliopsoas. We will explore breathing techniques and feel the relationship between this deep hip flexor with our head and neck. We soften the superficial hip flexors, while finding deeper support of abdominals, the deep spinal muscles, hips, hamstrings and gluteals, to support this releasing and lengthening of the psoas muscle group. The props you need are a chair, a bolster, and 2 blankets, a strap and 2 blocks. Modifications are shown. All levels welcome, one year yoga experience is recommended. Please pre-register through The Yoga Room.
