A Great Time In England – What Particpants Are Saying

Published by Liz Koch on July 18, 2008 in Blog

My June 2008 European tour was great fun! The Pilates Foundation of London welcomed me back for the 5th year to teach a class for their Pilate’s students and instructors. I especially enjoy how ready these eager participants are to learn about a healthy supple core. They have a strong training in somatics and each one has spent hours developing their own body awareness.

I spent a day seeing private clients, lectured to a small local group of therapists and enjoyed receiving a Bowen session with therapist Martin Grasby. My Warwickshire 3-day workshop brought together a truly amazing group of therapists, instructors and laypersons ready to delve deep within, and experience the dynamic psoas. I meet people from all over Europe and Japan and felt especially honored to work with a Japanese Obstetrics Physician who came so far to discover more about the mighty psoas. He understands the important and vital connection between a healthy functional psoas, pregnancy and natural birth.

I return in October, as a keynote speaker for the International Bowen Conference. Following the conference is a 2-day 12 hour workshop (open to every body) and then a 5-day residential retreat and Professional Application Course in Somerset, England.

Here’s what people are saying:

As an Osteopath who works in the Cranial field…I found a new dimension in this introduction to Liz’s bio-energetic, living, creative and harmonious insights to the dynamic relationship of form and function in movement. She integrates ‘the whole’ from a place of knowing within her own stillness that reaches out offering so much to those receptive to ‘listening’….allowing the possibility for each individual to find that place of stillness which exists within each of us.

I am still enjoying the after-effects of the course, my new upper psoas awareness is really helping me to access lost feelings of lightheartedness and joy.

Thank you for an extremely moving and powerful workshop…at the time, I had the feeling I wasn’t ‘taking it all in’, but these last few days, I have had various insights and been feeling very different inside my body – which all goes to show how fantastic the workshop was!

I love the way you mixed practical with chat and theory….I really enjoyed your demos too, especialy using sound, watching them was witness to someone who works deep within and from their own experience.

What I found most valuable was witnessing another teacher/practitioner, rooted in their practice through their own body intelligence. I don’t find often, but when I do, it nurtures me deep within my soul and affirms that I am going in the right way with my own practice and teaching.

Hi,Liz!
First I must say sorry that we had no time to say Thanks & Goodby.
Although I had a high wall about language,I experienced very valuable and useful time at Warwickhsire with you.
I was very interested in iliopsoas for these few years. I recognize iliopsoas plays very important role in our life-motion,activity,health.But it was very mysterious for me.
At the workshop I was strongly impressed by the your word , “juicy & dry” & “tissue”.
Coming back to Japan,I read your book again.Through the workshop I could understand more deeply. Thank you!
