A Way Out of Freezing Fear
(2-Hr Movement Class via Zoom)
Fear is the only instinct that has the power to immobilize us. As an involuntary muscle, psoas as part of the sympathetic neuro-core* is both a primal mover of our core integrity and part of our fear response. When we misuse our psoas we ultimately end up energetically depleting our life force and physiologically stressing our adrenals. The upper psoas located in the solar plexus is often referred to in Traditional Chinese Medicine as the “will center,” is the home of our adrenal glands and our immune system. These glands rest on top of our kidneys while our kidneys float on the juicy psoas. Both adrenals and kidneys are energetically associated with our vitality. Returning the core to its natural fluid and expressive nature is a subtle but beneficial strategy for dissolving old patterns for achieving safety. When we regain our fluid spine and soften our upper psoas, rather than manipulate our core, we offer our kidney/adrenals a juicy, fluid, and dynamic support.
Simultaneously we claim our birthright by discovering our deep-rooted sense of ground within the belly core that is so profoundly nourishing. Moving from within our very bones allows life to support us. By living on the axis of our core, we nourish a harmonious relationship with gravity that enables us to stand our ground while wholeheartedly expressing our true selves. That is, we show up fully in life.
