THE PSOAS CONNECTION:
THE DEEP CORE TO THE PELVIC FLOOR & BEYOND
$50 if registered in advance, 4 hrs of CE credits available!
This is an experiential workshop based on the psoas major’s most important role: connection from the lumbar spine to the hip, one of the body’s most vulnerable areas. Other muscles integrating through the deep core and pelvic floor will be discussed, as they work together to create balance and stability. This will be discovered through anatomical information, yoga postures, the emotional and spiritual aspects, release, and breath work.
The class is based on Jo Ann’s books, The Vital Psoas Muscle: Connecting Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Well-Being, and the Concise Book of Yoga Anatomy, both by Lotus Publishing & North Atlantic Books.
