Psoas

The exercises on this page are as much about exploring your psoas and your pelvis as they are about healing. With the FitzGordon Method, healing cannot begin without awareness. Settle into these explorations to come to a better understanding of how your body works.

Physical, emotional, and postural health are predicated on a body having loose supple joints with toned muscles. If you are reading this you likely have some tight joints. Every one of these releases is intended to bring movement and clarity to the involved joint.

The following exercises can be done all at once if you have the time but are also effective individually. For instance, someone who experiences hip pain while walking can stop on any street corner to do the Foot on a Block exercise. Temporary relief can go a long way toward permanent relief when we are trying to retrain the nervous system to believe that pain can be abated.

Finally, as good as these exercises can be for your psoas they are not a substitute for learning how to walk and stand more effectively. Changing a lifetime of conditioned patterns can be the answer to much of your pain and discomfort.
