Deep Attunement of the Instinctual Psoas Muscle: Release, Restore & Revitalize Your Core

with Tamika Schilbe and Brenda Dowell

Many people believe they can release their psoas through manual manipulation, however healing dysfunction or trauma stored in this vital muscle requires specific restorative techniques practiced repetitively. It requires an 'un-doing' rather than a doing! An instinctual muscle, the psoas is the primary messenger of the central nervous system, impacting every aspect of well-being including low back, neck, hips, joints, breathing, walking and adrenal functioning. Immerse yourself in cumulative restoration, simple movement inquires, gentle core restoration experiences, and community connection. Give yourself the time and space away from everyday responsibilities to dedicate yourself to renewing your core vitality. Advanced-level instructors Tamika & Brenda create a safe and supportive environment to experience the techniques yourself, and learn how to safely share them with others. *Open to yoga students, teachers, and bodyworkers, this course is also eligible for 50-hours advanced certification credit at DevaTree School of Yoga.
