Advanced Core Awareness Course for Laypersons & Professionals via Zoom

June 2, 2022 @ 10:00 am - June 30, 2022 @ 2:30 pm


The 5-Week Advanced Core Awareness course is designed for both Laypersons & Professionals interested in refining your understanding of the explorations found in my book Core Awareness: Enhancing Yoga, Pilates, Exercise, and Dance. In the intimacy of a small group zoom gathering (max 10) we will integrate the fundamental concepts for maintaining a healthy psoas. Each week I help you articulate and refine your movement using specific explorations from the book to increase proprioception, gain sensory awareness, and integrate your understanding of how to support your healthy functional Psoas. You will be working to gain nuance in your own system.
In partnership, you will be learning from each other’s experience and expertise, as we integrate healthy psoas into your practice and/or profession; sharing observations, and questioning your strategies will deepen your perception of the Psoas. As we focus on one major concept/chapter each week, you will also study keynote images presented in order to develop a keen eye, recognize strategies, compensations, (dysfunctions & injuries) behaviors, and expressions while practicing deep listening to foster your inner knowing of Psoas with Heartfelt Compassion.

FOR EVERYONE: Integrate the Core Awareness explorations into your own practice in order to be able to gain refinement as well as to successfully guide your clients and students through a natural process for regaining and maintaining a healthy psoas. 

Course Participants will learn to:

  • Develop observational skills for supporting the healthy psoas.
  • Become cognizant of the signs of an overactive sympathetic fear response and disrupted proprioception
  • Identify and choose a strategy of support, facilitate and implement basic trauma protocol
  • Utilize somatic tools for supporting the healthy psoas and nourishing the Neurocore.  
  • Facilitate your students and client’s ability to resource support
  • Recognize disruption and lack of grounding in movement and core expression
  • Work alone and together in partnerships in displaying the ability to attend to the healthy psoas  
  • Conceptualize and communicate the importance of core integrity and its relationship to the psoas.

PREREQUISITE & REQUIREMENTS: You must attend a minimum of  the BASIC 12-hr Psoas Workshop and at least one other workshop or Zoom class.  PLUS have read  The Psoas Book and bring to class: Core Awareness: Enhancing Yoga, Pilates, Exercise & Dance.  Expect to be on screen the full class time, attend to homework assignments week by week, and work in partnership during class.

NOTE: This course is an educational process designed for people interested in the field of Bodywork, Yoga, Pilates, Dance, and Fitness to increase their understanding and experience of the healthy psoas.  It is NOT for those needing to heal from trauma or major injuries. Please register only if qualified. This course is limited to 15 participants 

I encourage professionals already on my COMMUNITY page to attend this course to further deepen your understanding of how to utilize the explorations in Core Awareness and develop skills in discerning the healthy psoas.

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!
