Winter Remote Audio-Class 2018

November 27, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - January 8, 2019 @ 5:00 pm


Psoas Audio-Class Begins Tuesday,  November 27th, 2018

What Participants Are Saying…

From the very first class, learning how to think about the psoas as bio-intelligent tissue, something has ignited in me.

My work these past 8 years with Chi Nei Tsang has been geared towards that with the whole body, but something in the way you teach brought it more imminent.

Your voice and actual delivery of information is the best way to release a tight Psoas!

Absolutely loving your teleclasses, really validating the movement practices I’m so into (rolling, grounding, unraveling, authentic movement etc) and backing it all up in the bio-intelligent paradigm. I’m learning loads!

This has been the best thing I have done for my Psoas. I am just sorry I did not do it sooner.

I wanted to thank you for a truly enlightening class. I LOVE your investigations, understanding of the psoas and integrative, eye-opening perspectives. I really enjoyed this teleclass and hope to learn more from you in the near future!

I just listened to the class recording and it is excellent, I was especially moved by the details, like your deft address of the word “attached”…as in “the Psoas is attached to…”  that is just lovely and restful to hear.

I am finding your Psoas teleclass very useful and juicy – can’t wait to hear the next class!

I want you to know that your words have such a resonance with my view of how enormous are the manifestations of the body beyond elemental anatomy.  Your clarity has affected how I begin the invitation to experience the movement of weight, tissue, and breath as one healing self; your clarity transforms (as a yoga teacher) my beginning into each person’s own inviting. This transformation has been remarkable to see. Coming upon your work is a magnificent meal for my begging bowl!  May I share this vitality, and my thanks”

Informative & practical: Exercises were assigned that were actually possible to do at home without personal contact with the instructor, and I could do these exercises within the first day.

Valuable insight into how to work with a muscle that is a common problem for many of my clients.

A most valuable class for postural and pelvic awareness – I learned how to sit more comfortably, and I learned how to avoid exacerbating some SI joint problems I have. The physical therapy exercises I’d been given had only worsened my back/pelvic pain, but I found Liz’s exercises and skillful observations to be profoundly helpful in reducing my pain and correcting my pelvic alignment.

I’m really enjoying it very much and learning heaps. I love your languaging around all the issues and topics you are raising – inspirational. As a yoga teacher, it seems that more and more I am moving towards an understanding and learning about neutrality, equanimity, balance, and that my practice is about embodying that. Gradually I am finding that my yoga practice and teaching is not about mastering a particular shape with my body, but more of an exploration of dynamic movement, resolving towards balance, presence, and ease.

Great class, I am excited by this fresh take on the core.

Listen LIVE or Listen to the class recording at your leisure after each class for the length of the course.

Five consecutive Tuesdays, from 4 pm to 5 pm PDT, 6 pm to 7 pm CDT, and 7 pm to 8 pm EDT (and to all international students – enjoy the recording on your timeline).  Listen to each one-hour virtual class, from the comfort of your own home. Plus receive free coaching support for the entire 5-week course via email.  Registration cost is $220.00 (no early/or late dates to sign up)

ATTENTION – this course is NOT a webinar. It is an audio class – designed to help you develop your sensory system through the art of listening.

The class covers basic aspects of the Psoas, its functioning, effects, and recommended explorations for weekly homework. No two series are exactly alike as each series is  live, unique, and includes updated information. If you attend live your time to ask questions, explore problems, and discover new emerging ideas after each class.

You’ll receive personal email coaching with premium email access to me throughout the length of the 5-week course.  Email me your personal or professional psoas questions, problems, and concerns.  I will attempt to provide with a quick response each time and to support your healing and educational process.

Should you wish to join me you are responsible for your telephone/skype costs (i.e. long distance or phone minutes) when attending the live class lecture. Or listen to the class recording each week for free on your computer.  The recorded class will be sent to you within 24 hours after each class by email. Each recorded class may be listened to throughout the length of the series with the last class having 5 weeks for review after the live class ends.

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!
