Weights & Fluid Movement

September 16, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


“The primary characteristic of any fluid system is in its ability to keep transforming itself.”

Emilie Conrad

Exploring the use of weights in movement,  as both a support and an energizing effect on our fluid system, is the focus of this class.
By hydrating all tissue including the juicy psoas our potential for increasing strength and resiliency is benefited by exploring weight. 

Val Loeffner modeled for Core Awareness: Enhancing Yoga Pilates Exercise & Dance 
and teaches jungle gym classes https://innerdance.com/class-descriptions/

IMPORTANT: Each person will explore at their own pace and only with a small amount of weight to activate the juicy psoas. Please come prepared with small arm and ankle weights (see photos below) .  If you also happen to have a weighted vest or weighted waist belt please bring it along to show off more possibilities.

DISCLAIMER: I am not associated with the Continuum Teachers Association or with www.Continuummovement.com.  I was a student and colleague of Emilie Conrad.  I had the opportunity to work with her, teach together, and explore her ideas in writing (see Dem Bones article). What I will be teaching is a personal integrated approach  to playing with weights and movement to hydrate the juicy psoas. 

NOTE: The photo’s below are borrowed from the Continuum Teachers Associated website: https://www.continuumteachers.com/about/playground  –  I highly recommend the site for finding ongoing classes in Continuum Play (i.e. Jungle Gym) all around the world.  The purpose of the following photos is to show an example of arm and ankle weights that you can purchase at Fitness/Sports stores and big box stores such as Target.  Slide on or Wrap Around (velcro) styles work well.

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!
