Neck & Psoas: As Above So Below
A 2-hour Collaboration
Carol Lessinger
The territory we will be exploring is the relationships among our neck/throat, jaw, tongue, tailbone, and psoas.
Carol has been exploring the connection between the psoas and the longus coli muscle that emerges from the cervical vertebrae. Liz has been exploring the Psoas and tongue as our spinal fish connection.  We’ll begin with movement explorations based on the Feldenkrais Method of Learning. Taking the time that we need to grow our learning we explore relationships between the upper midline and the lower midline.  Then taking a deeper dive, we will use the beginning prompts to let our inner life guide us to our own unique networks of connection.
When noticing how we engage with intention and attention, especially when pausing, we often discover habitual patterns of movement. As we expand our choices in this realm, we move into greater freedom in all our relationships, our actions, and we open to a rich terrain of bio-dynamic responses.
Carol Lessinger Master Feldenkrais Teacher  with over 40 years experience has always been interested in the connection between movement and emotions. She started her career in the 1970’s teaching creative movement to children and dance improvisation to adults. The children truly expressed themselves and were having fun, while the adults inhibited themselves and made it more work than it needed to be. She wondered what held the adults back and thought, ”If only I could help by getting my hands on them.” In addition to her Feldenkrais training, she has trained as a massage therapist, a Postural Integrator, along with studies in Cranial Sacral Therapy, Zero Balancing, Embodied Life with Russell Delman, and she is a Cortical Field Reeducation trainer.
Bringing consciousness to healing through presence, ease, and self compassion is truly important to her. She has integrated a lifetime of somatic exploration into her own unique way of helping people feel better about themselves and to move more freely.
Liz Koch is a conceptual artist exploring the deep sensory system and the wild wisdom of core Psoas. An international somatic educator and author with 45 years of experience, she is the creator of Core Awareness and the author of The Psoas Book; Core Awareness: Enhancing Yoga, Pilates, Exercise & Dance; Stalking Wild Psoas: Embodying Your Core Intelligence; and her upcoming book Birth Savvy. Liz focuses on kinesthetic intelligence and somatic awareness as a means for developing our human potential. Stalking  Wild Psoas is her passion and Changing the Language of Body is her mission.

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!
