A journey of Transformation that utilises the power of:
KRIYA YOGA (SEQUENCE OF MOVEMENT & ASANA)
SOMATIC RITUALS & ENERGY WORK
Supported with somatic practices and deep rest, release for the Psoas muscle, we will share a space of integrity and trust to ground down + de-stress our nervous systems.
The Psoas - (also known as the muscle of the soul) is one of the muscles that we work on in Kundalini Tantra Yoga through moving, opening, breathing, spiralling, letting go.
The Psoas is connected to the reptilian part of the brain and our fight or flight response so is considered to hold the most emotional tension of any muscle in the body. 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.”
“Long before the spoken word or the organising capacity of the cortex developed, the reptilian brain, known for its survival instincts, maintained our essential core functioning. The way we live today, constantly rushing, competing and achieving, has the psoas in a constant “fight or flight” state.”
Though hidden deep within the body, the psoas is increasingly acknowledged as one of the most important muscles of the human structure. It has a multidimensional influence on physical, emotional and mental experience of stability, strength and connection.
Psoas Muscle And Breathing
The psoas, when tight, pulls on the pelvic floor muscles. And the fascia (connective tissue) joins the psoas to the diaphragm.
Having a tight psoas will also impair the role of the diaphragm, causing a disruption in breathing patterns.
There is a reverse effect as well – if we’re often stressed, this will affect our breathing patterns which in turn will affect the psoas.
When gently and sensitively accessed experientially the psoas can initiate a process of deep inner transformation as well as healing back pain, pelvic instability, digestive issues and a multitude of other physical conditions.
