Looking at Trauma through the Lens of Psoas
July 8 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Looking at Trauma through the Lens of Psoas adds an essential piece to the conversation.
As mammals our healthy psoas moves us through metabolizing our experiences.
Our Wild Primal Expressions are essential for both survival and thriving.
How do we freeze? How do we flee or fight? What curls us into a ball for protection or stretches us to expand and ward off ?
Trauma is defined as any short or long term overwhelming experience that ignites the fight/flight survival response without resolution. Trauma can include but is not limited to prenatal and birth trauma, childhood abuse (physical and emotional), neglect, sexual violations and experiences such as surgery, dental work, accidents, natural disasters, violence, war, torture, all forms of shock and living under the threat of eminent danger.
You will discover the Healthy Psoas is:
- Messenger of the Central Nervous System
- Part of the Fear Reflex (flee, fight and freeze response) and the Autonomic Nervous System
- Dynamic for organ functioning, breath & movement as part of the Sympathetic Neurocore
- Powerful and Expressive of our WILD animal body called the primitive (reptilian) brain
- Supple, dynamic, resilient and responsive for supporting coherent expression understood within the Polyvagal Theory
