HOW TO STRETCH YOUR HIP FLEXOR THE RIGHT WAY! - When I see people doing their hip flexor stretches, I see so much back arch, and even though you're getting an ok stretch you're not maximizing it👊👊! - Try this small, but VERY significant adjustment to make your hip flexor stretch more effective! - 💥Assume your normal hip flexor stretch (one knee on the ground and one in front) 💥 Imagine you're wearing a BIG belt buckle! Keep that belt buckle pointing straight ahead ⬅️ or slightly up ⬆️ throughout the entire stretch. 🔥 If you watch the video, on my first attempt, I arch my back and start shifting forward. I can shift pretty far forward but my imaginary Big belt buckle is pointing slightly down ↙️, and I'm not getting as much of a stretch on the hip flexors (psoas). . 🔥🔥 On my second attempt, I point that belt buckle straight ahead (posterior pelvic tilt) and start shifting forward making sure I don't let that belt buckle point down (anterior pelvic tilt). - 💥TAG A FRIEND WHO NEEDS TO FIX THEIR HIP FLEXOR STRETCH! - #hipflexor #psoas #mobility #stretching - #run #running #ifbb #npc #wbff #glutes #abs #core #mobility #massage #psoas #iliacus #quads #legday #squats #lunges #backsquats #frontsquats #bodybuilding #bodybuilder #crossfit #crossfitgames #crossfitter #crossfitters #wod

Meet the Psoas!! This amazing muscle is the filet mignon in the cow. It starts at the back of the body and crosses over to the front. It’s my favorite muscle 😍. It's function has been debated in the past due to its multiple connections into the lower back and the fact that it is the ONLY muscle connecting the lumbar spine and the leg bones. As a result it acts as a route of energy transfer through the body, and a tight, weak or inefficient psoas can affect movement and energy a great deal! When the spine is fixed the psoas flexes the hip, and helps with hip adduction and rotation. When the leg bones are fixed it assists in straightening the spine (with a little help from some spine extensor friends.) It has a very close friend in the Iliacus with whom it shares a tendon and they cuddle together at the front of the pelvis- together they're known as the Iliopsoas, literally joint at the hip!! 👯 #anatomynerd #pilatesnerd #anatomyofmovement #blandinecalaisgermain #psoas #hipflexor #iliopsoas #lumbarspine #pelvis

Hoy volví de correr y estaba tiesa. Me costó mucho soltar la tensión de mis músculos, en especial los isquiotibiales. Y es que eso es de las cosas duras del triatlón. Si no somos consistentes y dedicados con los estiramientos, fácilmente nos convertimos en atletas de esos que en vez de piernas parece q corrieran con un par de estacas. ¡Estiren! Eso marca una gran diferencia 🤗

Starting November 1st! Unlocking the Mysteries of the Psoas Forrest Yoga Social Media Challenge with me and fellow @forrestyoga teachers, Lola Rephann (from Jersey City, New Jersey) and Aviva Levine (from Oakland, California) online for 2 weeks this fall, to explore the mysteries of the vital psoas muscle. Each day, we'll explore a new Forrest yoga pose designed to lengthen, release &/or strengthen the Psoas. We'll each be offering slightly different variations and modifications as well as more on both the physical and energetic ways of working with this bio-intelligent muscle. To join the challenge: 1. Follow Lola, Aviva and I on Instagram &/or Facebook. Lisa: @lisadayyoga Lola: @dakini9 Aviva Levine: @breatheinloveretreats 2. Starting November 1st, post a photo or video of that day's pose along with any questions, insight or just about your experience with it. Tag Lola, Aviva and I on your posts and add #unlockingthemysteries and #psoaslove so we can all find each other 3. Invite your friends to join and support eachother. This challenge is not a competition. It's an opporutnity to tap into the wisdom and experience of the community to find new ways of working with your body to promote ease and healing. . . . . #yogaeverydamnday #yogatherapy #psoas #yogalove #yoga #yogachallenge #yogi #yogaeverywhere #yogapractice #igyoga #yogapose #yogalife
