Scaravelli, Yoga, Workshop, Psoas, Catherine Annis, Birmingham, UK

The psoas muscles are the deepest muscles in our core.  They are involved in almost every movement we make, from walking and running to sitting, and of course, we use them throughout our yoga practice.

Whilst they are extraordinarily sensitive and responsive, we often find it difficult to consciously feel them, or even know where they are within our bodies.   When we’re tired, emotional or have just been overdoing it a bit, they may become unbalanced and tense, potentially causing a wide range of symptoms including lower back pain, stress, postural imbalances and contributing to exhaustion and poor digestion.
