Focus on a healthy Psoas muscle and you will improve your skeletal integrity, joint mobility, muscle strength, breath, & organ functioning. Plus you will balance and enhance your sexual and emotional wellbeing! Whatever stage of life you are in the Psoas is core for reaching your full potential.
The focus is the relationship of the Psoas to all aspects (and ages) of women’s reproductive health: including menstruation, pregnancy, birth, postpartum, menopause, sexual pleasure, full body orgasm, core integrity, and the recovery from and prevention of surgery for prolapse or hysterectomy.
Saturday & Sunday, May 21 & 22, 2016
Don't miss this rare opportunity to study with these renowned myofascial and clinical experts in the integrative understanding, assessment and treatment of female pelvic health. Clinicians, manual therapists, body workers, birth workers, doulas, and yoga and movement teachers will all benefit from this immersion in fresh perspectives, in-depth anatomy and physiology, and movement explorations.
Explore the rich depths of the pelvis with bodywork, movement, and self-experience. The pelvis is the cradle of life and source of vital function and pleasure, yet potent cultural perspectives and inhibitions surrounding sex, bodily functions and posture can make it a difficult area to learn to navigate with confidence. Yet proper pelvic balance is so imp
ortant to the health of the spine, gait, digestion, elimination, childbirth, sexuality, and emotional well being. Sexual trauma, the wounds of childbirth, surgeries, and the challenges to the mature pelvis are our primary focus (but most of the material in this workshop applies to men as well). Tom Myers, author of Anatomy Trains® and director of Kinesis Inc, a worldwide bodywork education company and Dr. Eden Fromberg, osteopathic, holistic OBGYN and biointelligent medicine and movement pioneer offers clinical correlations and treatment perspectives rooted in connective tissue insights.
