3-day psoas workshop with Liz Koch
“Stalking The Wild Psoas & Womb to World”

From Womb to World, the Journey that Shapes our Life: Understand the long-term effects of our own conception, nine months in the womb, and birth experience. Discover how this experience might still affect each of us today physically, emotionally, and psychologically. Learn to support human potential from before conception throughout birth and beyond.

Exploring the Somatic Dynamics of Birth as it Plays Out in Our Own Core Expression: Our personal and cultural story is always held and expressed within our Psoas. It is possible to listen deeply into our own or another person’s internal process of unfolding. Doing so offers us insight into unspoken levels of anguish we or another person may be consciously or unconsciously experiencing.  Prenatal imprints are on an embryological level playing out on a cellular, organ, and tissue level as primordial expressions of our life attitudes and desires. This workshop explores the Psoas and core expression through simple movement evoking fluid movement and sound (within an atmosphere of play) for the soul purpose of reawakening and revitalizing our primal core. The explorations offer a way of igniting a primal awakening that stirs our life’s passion from within our belly core.
