Study Group Description
The iliopsoas (or just “the psoas”) gets blamed for all sorts of movement dysfunctions by Pilates teachers, yoga teachers, massage therapists, physical therapists, and chiropractors. In this study group, we’ll look at what is actually known about the function of the iliopsoas in movement and learn what kinds of problems actually arise in relation to it (e.g., tendinitis, snapping hip). We’ll also try to unpack the origins of the mysticism surrounding this muscle! This study group dovetails with Separate But Connected, but is open to all Pilates teachers and other movement/exercise professionals.
