“If you are kind to your body, it will respond in an incredible way”
Vanda Scaravelli, Awakening the Spine

Begin the new year by enhancing your yoga!  Join Catherine Annis for a series of mindful yoga workshops based on the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli to:

  • Discover how yoga can help you release tension, change the way you move, and improve your quality of life;
  • Find out why there’s so much more to touch than how the teacher adjusts / assists you;
  • Play with gravity, and become more grounded and centred;
  • Learn about the psoas – the muscle of emotion – and how it’s related to the spine, and the breath, and explore simple techniques to release it


YOGA WORKSHOP 4: Demystifying the Psoas

Scaravelli, Inspired, Yoga, Workshop. Psoas, Catherine Annis, Austria, ViennaThe psoas muscles are the deepest muscles in our core.  They are involved in almost every movement we make, from walking and running to sitting, and of course, throughout our yoga practice.

Whilst they are extraordinarily sensitive and responsive, we often find it difficult to consciously feel them, or even know where they are within our bodies.   When we’re tired, emotional or have just been overdoing it a bit, they may become unbalanced and tense, potentially causing a wide range of symptoms including lower back pain, stress, postural imbalances and contributing to exhaustion and poor digestion.

Join this workshop to understand more about these most emotional of muscles, and:

  • Improve your understanding of the structure and role of the psoas in the body ;
  • Learn why you should never stretch your psoas – and why it doesn’t need strengthening;
  • Let go of long held tensions which may help relieve lower back pain and improve your psychological well being.


Who is this weekend for?

These workshops are for anyone who’d like to find out more about this unique, subtle yet demanding approach to yoga, and all levels of experience are welcome.  Beginners will welcome the straightforward approach.  Teachers and serious students will experience a new way to explore your practice.  Also suitable for those working with chronic (but not acute) spinal issues.

All workshops are suitable for all levels, from beginners through to more experienced practitioners.
