About the Event
The psoas is a muscle situated deep within the abdomen that can be viewed as the core of the physical body. This muscle influences many aspects of both physical wellbeing as well as the fundamental sense of Being. It is crucially important in supporting balance and “centering” (coming home in yourself), movement and coordination, and also for posture and joint rotation. It is the only muscle that connects lumbar vertebra with the legs and the diaphragm.
The psoas serves as a highly sensitive mirror and radar for the deepest feelings, reactions and emotions. When affected, the psoas tells the real story of what is happening, far from what the eye sees. Moreover, the psoas is at the heart of the area when fear, hurt and trauma are packaged up and hidden away. It is the muscle that makes you fight, flight, freeze or respond.
In this advanced course, you will learn how to work with various dynamic and static deep-touch techniques, client-oriented exercises that bring awareness into the psoas so as to strengthen the muscle and help it release its emotional charge. You will learn to make deep contact by conscious touch, respectful entrainment, allowing space for feelings and emotions, and the importance of breathing. A special emphasis will be placed on listening with heart and soul and unconditional acceptance, all of which create the fundamental conditions for profound and vital presence and relaxation.
