The psoas is the seat of the soul, it links the femur to the lower 5 vertebrae, it crosses the hip joint and is a major hip flexor.
Stress response.... its hard wired to our nervous systems and the major torso flexors. Circumstances like long standing arguments with partners, free floating anxiety, a verbal jab from a co worker or friend, a close call in the car, can all equate in tight guts, hunched shoulders, sunken hearts. Creating a habitual response to stress. Falsley informing our experiences as normal.
Yoga gives you the opportunity to undo this chronic tension and replace it with a deep abiding sense of harmony in the body and mind.
