Quick Tip: Do you know how to stretch your psoas with a partner?

Posted by on Mar 16, 2016 in Bodywork Techniques, Community Workshop, Exercises, Health and Wellness, Stretches

This week Psoas co-owner, Scott Schwartz, and Psoas client and 2016 Olympian, Nathalie Marchino, demonstrate a great and easy partner stretch for your Psoas muscle. As a competitive athlete it is very important that Nathalie is able to access the full length and strength of her psoas to help increase speed, power, and endurance while maximizing performance and preventing injury. The psoas is the only muscle that connects our upper and lower body yet is one of the most neglected and damaged muscles due in large part to the consistency of which we regularly sit. Get out of your chair, find a partner, stretch your psoas, and check out our YouTube channel for other self care tips and stretches!

Stay posted for more information regarding a meet and greet style community workshop we will be hosting here at Psoas on Wednesday, April 13th at 6:00 p.m. with Nathalie just before she leaves for her Olympic training.
