Liz Koch discusses the Psoas muscle and Core Awareness™ principles with Deric Stockton, owner of Core Strength RX Private Gym in Scotts Valley, CA. We discuss overuse, misuse and abuse of the psoas, the importance of spine-based movement, and how to maximize the psoas muscles action potential. A powerlifter, and strength coach/personal trainer, Deric offers a unique somatic perspective of the core muscle, affirming the importance of skeletal positioning, fluidity and proprioception for a healthy powerful core.
Liz Koch is an international educator and author who seeks to dissolve the objectification of “body” in order to re-conceptualize human beings as biologically intelligent, self-organizing, and self-healing. Employing biomorphic and embryonic paradigms, Liz redefines psoas as smart, expressive tissue that is both elemental and universal.
Core Awareness fosters core integrity and self-efficacy as creative and expressive human beings.
