The psoas muscle gets a lot of attention, and so it should. This is a muscle that not only bridges the core to the legs, but it’s also a massive stabiliser and protector of the spine. When we experience impact from the forever changing and unpredictable environment, the body receives this shock and deals with it from the inside. Many musclo-skeletal structures play various roles, but one that they share is that they have the ability to absorb shock from the impact of the physical and emotional world. The psoas is one of the muscles to touch the spine. Before arriving at the psoas, the other structures above have as much shock as they can. But whatever they are not capable of dealing with, the psoas has to work extra hard to ensure that shock doesn’t cause too much stress to the spine. The psoas not only absorbs shock. When it is functioning well it helps us to move from our core enabling us to dance, yoga and all the movements that we love. Having an optimum psoas is essential to freedom of movement in the core, lower back and hips. There are many routes to the psoas, and this training explores a plethora of them.




10am ceremony & Meditation 

11-12.30 yoga poses for psoas integration 


2.30-5.30 lectures and bodywork 


Day 1: Lovett-Brothers Theory 

What happens in one of the spine occurs in the other. This class works on balancing the psoas by addressing its complementary structures on the other side of the spine.


Day 2: The Psoas Family

Today we focus on the hip flexor group, learn how to activate them in yoga poses and how to release them in bodywork 


We also cover ‘The Other Psoas Family’ This class focuses on the activation and release of the possible antagonists of the psoas 


Day 3: Myofascial Continuums

This class explores the key myofascial continuum’s of the psoas muscle. This helps us to understand the relationship of the synergists (the muscles that help) the psoas. We will address how to activate and release each muscle.


Day 4: Myofascial Continuums- The Antagonists 

What’s the myofascial meridian that could have opposing effects on the psoas? This class explores the structures that could be weak or tight from antagonist myofascial meridians that we explored from the previous day. Learning how to handle the compensation patterns from the antagonist group of muscles welcomes a greater quality of stability 


Day 5: Acupressure, Somatics & Cranial Theory 

This class explores the acupressure points associated with the psoas, including a dive into the Kidney channel and its relevant points for detoxification, supporting and enlivening this aspect of the spirit.

We will also cover cranial holds relevant to the psoas for maximum integration.


You do not need to be a yoga teacher or bodyworker. It’s more important that you have a willingness to explore your own intricacies and are willing to honour them in order to maintain the rhythm of the program.


On completion of this training you will receive the relevant certification.
