Drop deep into a somatic experience and reconnect with your life force. Part theory before we work through an embodied asana practice to release stored tension in this deepest muscle of the human body. Our fast paced modern lifestyle (which runs on the adrenaline of our sympathetic nervous system) chronically triggers and tightens the psoas – making it literally ready to run or fight. The psoas helps you to spring into action – or curl you up into a protective ball.... The psoas is far more than a core stabilising muscle; it is an organ of perception composed of bio-intelligent tissue and “literally embodies our deepest urge for survival, and more profoundly, our elemental desire to flourish.”
Just like a party we lubricate and juice up the tissues, ease into movements that help the surrounding musculature to 'get along' a little better, and let loose... just a little, not too much, so we wake up feeling awesome, not smashed like if we party to hard!
