The iliopsoas muscle is thought to be the most core muscle of the body and it is key to stabilizing the lower spine. The psoas is a muscle closely involved in breathing, as it connects directly to the respiratory diaphragm. In this class, we lengthen, twist, and flex the psoas in order to create flexibility and space in the abdomen. By releasing strain or tension in the psoas muscle, we prepare the diaphragm for deep, smooth, and uninhibited breathing.

Prajna Yoga: Tias & Surya Little

Prajna Yoga makes its home in the foothills of Santa Fe, New Mexico – the home of Tias and Surya Little. We believe that yoga is a pathway that begins in the outer layers of body and mind and navigates inward to the mystical, subtle and rarely seen interior. We combine meditative practice with the power and grace of asana training. In a process that requires sensitivity and inner listening, we explore the sheaths of connective tissue, muscle and bone in order to bring about greater wakefulness, luminosity and space within.
