Notoriously tight and weak in most Westerners (thanks to a lifetime of chair usage), the implications of a dysfunctional Psoas can span the entire body and can even affect other bodily systems outside of the musculoskeletal one.
Lots of people spend too much wasted time trying to stretch out chronically tight hip flexors that don't want to let go (and possibly end up with angrier, tighter hips than they had before).
This workshop first teaches you the basic anatomy and function of the Psoas and the Iliacus, before spending time getting your hip flexors to release and then moving through some gentle stretching and strengthening exercises.
This workshop is extremely gentle and involves a fair amount of lying around waiting for gravity/time to perform magic! It should be appropriate for anyone who feels tight in their hips/lower back but does require the ability to get up and down off the floor.
Please contact Elizabeth Crosswell if you'd like to find out more.
An email will be sent a week or so before the workshop confirming details and what to bring. Please liaise with Dancefest if you have questions - Ellie does not have the names/details of the people attending the workshop and isn't involved in the booking process.
