We all love our Iliopsoas!
Just found a really good article by Nichelle Strzepek over on the Dance Advantage blog titled “Introducing the Iliopsoas” that is well worth sharing. It’s not a very long article, and as we’ve been talking about this group of muscles in class, I thought it would be a good place to begin the search.
We spend a good portion of time in hip work and drills, and have added strengthening exercises of the Psoas for better technique and to avoid injuries.
Go read the whole piece at Dance Advantage, it will really help you understand why. She has a cute intro too!
