Praise

“This book has enlightened and assisted me in my own personal and professional evolutionary process, and I feel that any reader, after taking this journey with the author, will be able to add a layer of knowledge and enlightenment on their own path to a better understanding of optimal health and function.”
—Gary Mascilak, D.C., P.T., C.S.C.S

“The Vital Psoas Muscle considers this specific muscle, located in the front hip joint and lower spine and critical for postural alignment, movement and overall well-being. It tells how to solve lower back pain and reduce trauma through understanding the physical, emotional and spiritual ramifications of this muscle, offering in-depth illustrations and key stretching and strengthening routines that incorporate the use of yoga or pilates.”
