*PANDICULATION A highlight of this program will be the gentle somatic movement practices, otherwise known as known as "rolling around on the floor." Expect to feel just like you just had a good stretch after a long cozy nap! We will use slow and conscious rhythmic motions to release chronic muscular tensions and the discomforts that they create. These gentle movements retrain postural patterns, releasing held muscular patterns. Benefits include a natural sense of ease and fluidity in the body, improved posture, a calmer nervous system, and an increased range of movement. Students often feel taller and more comfortable in their bodies the very next day after just one Somatic Movement session!

Psoas and Core Awareness 

In-Depth Healing Program for Body and Chakras

These are not just movement classes, you can also unblock and correct malfunctions of the lower chakras and the corresponding issues of survival, emotions, power, and energy.

Program is designed as a complete and versatile system - all classes are yours forever, this might be all the yoga you'll ever need! 

Heal your Psoas, Stabilize your Core, and Balance your Chakras
Begins 3/19

We generally think of "our Core" muscles as our abdominal muscles, but the psoas runs much deeper and affects all aspects of strength and movement. The Psoas is associated with all kinds of discomforts and inconveniences, such as groin pain, low back pain and spasms, radiating pain down the leg, sciatica, difficulty “opening the hips”, “snapping hip syndrome,” lumbar disc problems, and a general restricted range-of-motion. All of this can lead to overall compromised energy and endurance. This complete program not only open hips and release the psoas, but also helps you let go of unconscious/unspecific fears that cause muscular and alignment holding patterns. These patterns limit our range of movement and prevent us from feeling at ease in our bodies.

The psoas is not just a hip flexor or a muscle we need to release, it is energetically tied to our 3 lower chakras. This program is not just designed to change and heal the body, but also to unblock and correct malfunctions of the lower chakras and corresponding issues of survival, emotions, power, and energy.

The Psoas and Core Awareness Healing Program is given to you over 3 weeks, and has 3 separate components.

1) ACTIVE MOVEMENT - 2 yoga classes from which to choose, one easier one for beginners and one for more advanced students. Sometimes we feel like beginners, sometimes we like a challenge. You pick your level, or do both classes on different days. Each class will focus on the psoas, hips, and low back, plus abdominal strengthening exercises.

2) PASSIVE MOVEMENT - Gentle somatic movement practices, known as both "pandiculation" and "rolling around on the floor." It will feel just like a good stretch after a long cozy nap! We will use slow and conscious rhythmic movements to release chronic muscular tensions and held patterns. These gentle movements retrain postural patterns, creating a natural ease in your body, improving your posture, calming your nervous system, increasing your comfortable range of movement and adding a sense of fluidity.
3) HEART AND MIND - The final component is the four led meditations and two restful Yoga Nidras, specific to the three lower chakras. One meditation integrates all of the chakras, the other three are for healing the lower three chakras individually. You will also be given journaling prompts for each of the lower three chakras to aid in your healing journey and creating the life you want and deserve.

The 6 yoga classes and 3 somatic movement classes, plus all meditations and Yoga Nidra sessions will be pre recorded so you can do them at your own convenience. You can complete the course over the three weeks, but the material is your to keep forever and you can revisit it as often as you'd like, doing the whole series again, or just whatever suits you. This is also helpful if you'd like to start with the three more gentle yoga classes and later progress to the more challenging ones at your own appropriate pace, or dial down your effort at any time.

Conquering Yoga Obstacles - Personal Breakthrough Coaching

Which obstacles can I clear for you? 

I am currently offering personal yoga coaching for those who can relate to any of the following-

-You used to have a strong practice, but haven't practiced for years

-Your practiced was sidelined by an injury, family obligations, Covid, work, life, or more exciting hobbies

-You have mixed feelings about practicing again

-You are procrastinating because you are a closet perfectionist

-You are overly attached to how you used to practice, because that way was "the right way," and it's all or nothing

-You know that how you used to practice would not serve your current body, heart, and lifestyle

-The thought of stepping into a public class causes you anxiety

Let me design a personal, rewarding, and seasonally appropriate program, just for you. 

We will give considerable attention to get you through these hindrances, moving you towards an appropriate and enjoyable practice. We will release any shame or fear that you might have around practicing again, and design a gentle program to enliven your heart, spirit, and body. Expect to refresh your mindset and let go of the past. Stop worrying about what you used to do, let's move forward together and start with a clear and fresh perspective. 

Your private coaching with me can start with delving into whatever obstacles are holding you back BEFORE you step foot on a mat. I want you to come back to yoga self-judgement free and with full clarity! We will build slowly and appropriately, in-person or on zoom. I am here for you 100% of the way. 

If you are curious about my program, text me at 510-207-2594. We can set up a no-obligation discovery call, via phone or zoom. Let's allow yoga to work for you, instead of the other way around!
