The Supportive Psoas, Yoga Therapy for the Spine, Pelvis & Hips

June 23, 2018 - June 24, 2018

Drawing from her forthcoming book co-authored with Donna Farhi “Pathways to a Centered Body: Gentle Yoga Therapy for Core Stability, Healing Back Pain and Moving with Ease”, Leila will teach a two day workshop with a focus on the psoas.

Learn experiential anatomy and yoga therapy techniques to explore the psoas as a muscle of movement, support and integration. Awareness of this “yogic” muscle can turn your practice and teaching into a living process of transformation in which you live and move from your wholeness.

The psoas is a muscle of integration. It creates a bridge by linking the body back to front, upper to lower, core to periphery, spine to limbs, and deeper self to public self.

In this workshop you will learn to:

*Use experiential anatomy to access, relax and lengthen your psoas to its maximum resting length.

*Experience your psoas as a source of core stability and centrally initiated movement.

*Explore the role of your psoas in spinal, hip, and pelvic alignment, pain and dysfunction.

*Engage the psoas to feel more deeply centered in your true self and access your inner power.

This workshop is suitable for yoga students and teachers, movement teachers of all disciplines and health practitioners including massage therapists, physiotherapists and kinesiologists.
