The Muscle of Your Soul

Living Well

Katelyn Sander 0 5307

Your psoas muscle is the deepest core muscle of the human body. It is the only muscle that connects your trunk to your lower limb and plays a key role in maintaining posture, stability, and balance. It also plays a part in encouraging effective diaphragmatic breathing which we know is so powerful in optimizing oxygen flow into the muscles and tissues, key for performance, recovery, mindfulness, and relaxation.
