POWER of Psoas: A Collaboration with Deric Stockton CANCELED

February 9, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - February 10, 2019 @ 5:00 pm


A Collaboration between Liz Koch & Powerlifter Deric Stockton

Don’t miss this rare opportunity!

Experience The ‘Action Potential’ and POWER of Your Psoas

2-day (12-hour) Psoas workshop open to EVERY-BODY focused on true core strength and power! Today’s fitness programs often employ locking down the ribs, tucking the tail, and pulling into the core abdominal muscles as a strategy for developing core strength. This erroneous approach is not how power lifter and elite trainer Deric Stockton found his true power and strength. Capable of power lifting over 804 pounds, Stockton teaches that it is a supple, dynamic Psoas, and highly developed proprioceptive nervous system that is essential for attaining strength and power.

NOTE: this is Saturday & Sunday Workshop meets each day at a different location in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Day one is held in Felton CA at a studio, Day two is held in Scotts Valley CA at Stockton’s gym/studio.

Discover A Functional Paradigm for Strength & Igniting Core Power:

  • Develop tissue strength without density
  • Build a practice around eustress (positive) not distress (negative)
  • Gain effective restoration and active recovery tools for overcoming all injuries
  • Go beyond the symptomatic/asymptomatic approach and evoke true vitality
  • Move from a supple dynamic core to build lasting strength
  • Achieve power by enhancing preconception and bi-lateral equalization

Deric Stockton is the owner of Core Strength RX Gym.  He is a certified trainer and the creator of a system for developing a powerful and functional core. Deric is a Psoas aficionado, like myself, but arrives at core awareness from a very different background. An athlete, marine, and bodybuilder turned power lifter, turned strength coach & personal trainer, Deric is one super Psoas savvy guy! He works with all ages and all levels of functioning including training for the Special Olympics.  Deric has an amazing somatic understanding of the core and the importance of skeletal integrity, proprioception, and fluid tissue for gaining overall health and well-being.  He is also a living anatomy, which offers students an example of tissue capable of a wide range of expression.

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!
