The Plague of Pressure

The Plague of Pressure 22 March 2021 Last week I woke up one morning with my head spinning around and around. I felt overwhelmed by the amount of things I needed to do in a very short time.

Constructive Rest Pose

Constructive Rest Pose 21 December 2020 ‘The mysterious psoas muscle is the main muscle involved in your fight or flight response in your body. Your psoas contracts when you are frightened.
