So many of us have shortening & dysfunction in our psoas muscles. A huge reason for this is because we spend so much time sitting from a very young age. If you are unfamiliar with the psoas muscles, read my blog, The Muscle of Your Soul here: https://wishallwellness.com/the-muscle-of-your-soul/
– As you walk, focus on the leg that is behind you. You want to feel a push off from that foot. Often, the tendency as we walk is to sort of grab the ground in front of us.
