Yesterday’s post linked to youtube about relaxing the psoas muscles. I tried the video and couldn’t get up off the floor. I can put my knees up, but arching my back caused pain. Ignoring my body’s cues I did it a few more times causing more harm than good. Arthritis prevents certain positions and movements in that area. While driving to a matinee (Girl on a Train), I became concerned about giving insufficient, sketchy or inaccurate information.
Ann’s work seems to involve TRE. After investigating more, that involves a different set of exercises which I will try. I am not suggesting anyone else try these, just sharing as it fascinates me. I believe my body has stored everything that happened to it as a child.
After a quick scan of youtube videos, this one looks doable, but not the ones involving bending over at the waist or raising up my back while on the floor.
