A Gentle Yoga Practice for Psoas Release


A Gentle Yoga Practice for Psoas Release

The psoas muscle – via its close connection to the diaphragm and the fight-or-flight response – is thought to play a significant role in our mental and emotional well-being. Yoga offers many powerful ways to release chronic muscle tension in the psoas.

This half-hour practice offers a number of yoga sequences to help mind and body settle down and to facilitate deep release in the psoas.

Join yoga therapist Marlysa Sullivan, as she guides you through a series of asanas that will open all the different areas of your body that can impact the psoas muscle, both facially and through direct muscular attachment.

You’ll also explore the relationship between your breath and release of the psoas muscle.


Marlysa Sullivan MPT, E-RYT 500 is an Assistant Professor at Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH) where she teaches in the integrative science and yoga therapy departments. Marlysa has developed many courses.
