No matter what cycle or phase a woman may be embarking upon the Psoas plays an essential role! Whether it is your sexual desire, the ease of your menstrual flow, the holding within and eventual birthing of your baby, a quick recovery, or pre and post menopausal shifts…the health and vitality of your psoas is going to either support or disrupt the dynamic flow of life. Having a juicy, fluid and expressive psoas provides you with just the right amount of gut instincts; heart felt courage, and dynamic core expression to make each transition integral, with easy, and definitely pleasurable. Whatever stage of life you are in the healthy fluid Psoas is core for reaching your full potential.
Working along side perinatologists, obstetricians, and indigenous midwives, Anna Verwaal RN, CLE has attended hundreds of high-risk hospital deliveries and natural births at home. Her research on the long-term effects of conception, nine months in the womb, and birth experience have evolved into an educational and healing perspective regarding the journey that shapes our lives. From Womb to World is a conversation between USA born Liz Koch and Dutch born Anna Verwaal concerning the assumptions, imprints, and traumas reflected in the cellular matrix of human beings that are expressed in the core tissue of the Psoas.
Dr. Michael Shea PhD is an international educator and author in the field of somatic psychology, myofascial release, and biodynamic craniosacral therapy. He is currently an adjunct faculty teacher in human embryology within the pre and perinatal psychology doctoral program at the Santa Barbara Graduate Institute of California. Liz Koch and Dr. Shea discuss embryology as a symbol for healing, wisdom, and wholeness. Using the story of the developing embryo helps us understand the fluid core and the dynamic juicy psoas by shifting the cultural paradigm of body as object to body as a living bio-intelligent process.
Liz Koch, author of The Psoas Book and Core Awareness: Enhancing Yoga, Pilates, Exercise, and Dance explains and demonstrates a simple exploration for softening and hydrating connective tissue: spine midline and psoas. Using a SloMo™ type exercise ball almost fully deflated Liz shows how she uses this simple tool for re-discovering primal movement along the body midline.
