Psoas Stretch

Step 1;

Kneel on the floor, knees hip width apart, with the soles of your feet flat against the wall.

Step 2;

Raise your left knee and place your foot on the floor, making sure your knee and ankle are in line. Push your pelvis forwards and you should feel a stretch on the front of the right thigh. Hold position for 20 seconds. If this is easy, proceed to step 3. If not, then practice this daily until it becomes more comfortable and then proceed to step 3.

Step 3;

Return your left leg to the kneeling position. Raise your right ankle up, bending at the knee. Slide your knee backwards towards the wall, until your toes are resting against the wall. Make sure your toes; ankle and knee are in a straight line.  Take your knee as far back as is comfortable, whilst maintaining balance upright and keeping your hips level. If you find yourself unable to balance or bending forwards, bring your knee forwards until it is a comfortable position to hold. Hold position for 20 seconds. Repeat on opposite side to stretch left Psoas.
