This course provides a movement practice that cultivates increased awareness of the iliopsoas complex from the point of view of the Gyrotonic Method. The course includes layered anatomical information that is linked to progressive movement explorations that release, and awaken the psoas muscle. The content of the course gives students a deeper understanding of Gyrotonic principles like "Supple-ing", and "Narrowing of the Pelvis". These preparations will be integrated into a Psoas specific, 90 minute Gyrotonic workout. The enhanced approach of the Psoas Principles course supports a deeply nourishing, efficient movement experience, and is especially beneficial for the healing of injuries, and trauma in the pelvic, and lumbar regions.
