The course will be taught in English, with Spanish translation.
Practice with Sandra Carson, senior international yoga teacher (E-RYT500) and Anusara® certified during this weekend workshop in Madrid. Learn to feel and give flexibility to your psoas and create stability in your movement.
The psoas is a deep muscle that is a major player in our body that has many jobs. It acts as a stabilizer between the lower body and the upper body, it is a mover of the legs and it creates flexion of the hips.
For yoga practitioners, having a healthy psoas has a tremendous positive effect on forward bends, backbends and twists. Besides the physical benefits of a healthy psoas, this hipflexor also has a powerful effect on how able you are to relax and feel good in your body.
In addition to its physical role, the psoas is also an “emotional” muscle and your “second brain.”Stress, unprocessed trauma and emotions are stored deep within your body, and in the psoas muscle. To connect to this part of yourself and to learn to feel it and release it, can be of great benefit to finding more ease, wellbeing and vitality.
The workshop is accessible and recommended to students of all levels and yoga practitioners who want to learn new patterns of movement.
It can be of particular interest to yoga teachers and students wanting to learn more about the effect of the psoas and pelvic alignment in yoga, to people with some pain in the lower back or pelvis zone and in general for those interested in improving their health and emotional state though yoga.
It is highly recommended to take all workshops together, if possible.
The course qualifies for Yoga Alliance continuing education hours.
