for your psoas at least, try these:

watch out for back pain when you lay on the ball. you may want to start with a softer ball like the Yogatuneup Alpha ball.

On the couch stretch, it is critical that you contract the glute of the leg that is behind you. You should not be just stretching psoas tissue; the flex of the glute introduces a neurological component to help release and lengthen the psoas. Without it, you’re just pulling on tissue and you may even strain it.
