Session five works with the front of the body to free any deeper pelvic and abdominal restrictions, which can inhibit movement and posture alignment.
One of the main focuses of this session is the psoas muscle. The psoas muscle is the major hip flexor of the body, which connects the legs to the spine and stabilises the vertebral segments of the lower back.
Sitting for long periods such as by the computer may lead to tightening of the psoas which can affect the bodies ability to walk upright. This is because sitting prevents the muscles from fully lengthening in order to allow the hips to extend. Without healthy hip flexion and extension the human body will struggle to move properly. Tight psoas muscles can also impact the breathing as the psoas is connected by ligaments to the diaphragm.
As well as prolonged sitting, the psoas muscles can also become tight when the human body experiences some trauma or fear. Prolonged stress in the body may lead to a muscle imbalance of the psoas muscle which could cause constant flexion and ultimately pain in lower back, pelvis and hips.
