Advanced Core Awareness Course (NCBTMB Approved)on Zoom (Level One) Copy

September 21, 2023 @ 10:00 am - October 19, 2023 @ 2:30 pm


A 5-Week Advanced Course designed for both Laypersons &  Professionals to refine your understanding of the explorations found in my book Core Awareness.

In the intimacy of a small group gathering (max 10) on Zoom we will integrate the fundamental concepts for maintaining a healthy psoas. Each week we refine and articulate movement, increase proprioception, and integrate our results by working together. Learning from each other’s expertise, sharing our observations, questioning our strategies we’ll explore each chapter, encouraging a keen eye, nuanced sensing, and deep listening while fostering our inner knowing.

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 also gain:

  • 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 sensing the core expression (Neurocore)
  • Facilitate your client and students ability to resource support
  • Learn to recognize lack of grounding in movement and expression
  • Work together in partnerships that will display the ability for self help or to lead students through explorations that support the healthy psoas
  • Conceptualize and communicate the importance of core integrity and its relationship to the psoas.


PREREQUISITE & REQUIREMENTS: You must  have attended a minimum of One BASIC  Psoas Workshops and/or a combination of the 5-week Audio Psoas course plus  3 Zoom classes.  Please read and bring to class: Core Awareness: Enhancing Yoga, Pilates, Exercise & Dance.
Expect and be available to have a homework assignment and to discuss the concepts during each 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.

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!
