The Elusive Psoas

Emphasis: Core
Recommended length: 3-6 hours

 

The psoas muscle is responsible for proper balance and general body support. It maintains body structure and body relationships. It can well exert a vital influence on bodily well-being. Its close proximity to the diaphragm implies that imperfect psoas function reflects into the diaphragm and into the ribcage. Anything directly affecting the psoas also affects the pelvis and its contents. Learn new postures for developing the psoas with unique postures guaranteed to enhance core strength, muscle tone, balance, and stamina. Participants move into a Taoist flow of postures that incorporate continuous smooth and circular motions that promote ease, fluidity, and grace in the body.

Backbends and Twists

Emphasis: Spinal strength
Recommended length: 2.5–3 hours

 

The Spine is The Tree of Life. Backbends reverse the aging process and fill the body and heart with vitality and joy. Many of us have lower back, shoulder, or neck issues that limit our ability to do backbends or twists. Through a safe approach, Deanna will guide you through a series of backbends and twists that in combination will bring openness to your body, joy to your heart, and enthusiasm to continue moving. No matter what your age, issue, or experience level is, you can work toward developing a supple spine and recharge your life!

* Some props provided. Contact the instructor to discuss the group and site needs.
