On Thursdays' Restorative Yoga class something interesting happened. I had started class with some gentle stretching and then we moved to our first restorative pose of the evening. I chose to do the Psoas Release pose, inspired by Liz Koch's book on the Psoas. Liz Koch writes about lying down in what's known as the "constructive rest position" which is a simple, supine pose with bent legs. I added to that tons of props so that the body does not have to work at holding itself up. The result? A really relaxing pose that through the usage of props and gravity allows the Ilio Psoas muscle complex to release.
