18-Hr Psoas Depths & Retreat (Somerset, England)

3-Day Psoas In-depth Workshop – OPEN TO EVERY BODY

Open to EVERY BODY the workshop provides the necessary time  for delving deep within your core to explore the healthy functional iliopsoas. By understanding the Psoas and its role in the survival response (flee/fight/freeze) we’ll begin a dialog between the iliopsoas complex, autonomic nervous system and reptilian brain (old brain). The iliopsoas muscle affects skeletal integrity, joint rotation, muscular tension, breathing, feelings, and organ functioning.

This 3-day workshop includes:

  • Understanding the function of the iliopsoas muscle on all aspects of well-being
  • Practical experience sensing, releasing, toning, and lengthening your own iliopsoas
  • Exploring the energetic/emotional/spiritual dynamics of physical core
  • Recognizing the dysfunctional iliopsoas as an expression of TRAUMA
  • Recovering and maintaining a healthy iliopsoas muscle
  • Applying ideas to everyday movement; sitting, driving, and walking
