Level 2 - Pace: Moderate
Our lifestyle often has us deal with tight and sensitive hip flexors. The ilio-psoas is a very complicated/sophisticated muscle, its fascia is in contact with the femur (leg) the ilium (hip), the spine (vertebral body, transverse process and disc) and with all the organs of the abdominal cavity. This muscle doesn’t like to sit too much, and we need to make sure that our glutes and lower abs are strong enough to have a balanced movement pattern.
In this intermediate mat we will also play with the wall, with some elastic bands and other tricks to make sure we can work through the sequences, getting into the proper muscles without overworking the psoas.
