Stalking Wild Psoas:Changing the Language of Bodychallenges the objectification of “body” by inviting us to experience ourselves as dynamic living processes. By decolonizing the mechanistic framework of psoas as muscle, we begin to invite a conversation with a biodynamic Core Intelligence. Weaving together new biology, systems thinking, somatic movement, and story-telling, Author and Somatic Educator Liz Koch reveals the predominant bio-mechanical paradigm as self-limiting and elucidates ways in which we can free ourselves in order to explore psoas as the messenger of the mid line. Following the keynote lecture and discussion, Liz will guide us through several explorations focused on the core as an expressive process. Please dress in comfortable clothes for movement.

Welcome to Core Awareness™

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.

Here at Core Awareness you’ll discover new ways of understanding the psoas. In addition to the blogs there is an educationally rich sourcing free for the taking. Explore my videos, articles, podcasts, interviews, FAQ’s and community links and let yourself go wild!
