Leslie Kaminoff Psoas workshop recording. Much attention in yoga and fitness circles has been given to the importance of “core strengthening,” without much regard for the equally vital qualities of “core sensitivity” and “core articulation.”
In this anatomically inspired exploration, Leslie Kaminoff will view these topics through the lens of one of the body’s most fascinating structures – the psoas muscle. Equally involved in movement, support, breathing and sensing, the psoas is like a myofascial superhighway that can take us deeply into the literal and metaphorical core of our embodied existence.
All levels are welcome: combined theory, inquiry, practice, discussion.
