The brilliant Catherine Annis is joining us again from Triyoga in London for another experiential workshop, this time focusing of demystifying the psoas muscles.  The psoas muscles are the deepest muscles in our core and are involved in almost every movement we make. Whilst they are extraordinarily sensitive and responsive, we often find it difficult to consciously feel them, or even know where they are in our bodies.

When we’re tired, emotional or have just been overdoing it a bit, our psoas muscles may become unbalanced and tense, potentially causing a wide range of symptoms including lower back pain, stress, postural imbalances and can contribute to exhaustion and poor digestion. This workshop is great for learning how to soothe and release your psoas safely and how to let go of long held tensions, which may help relieve lower back pain and improve your psychological wellbeing.

During this workshop Catherine will help you to understand more about these complex muscles and improve your understanding of the structure and role of the psoas in the body. You’ll also discover the connection between the psoas and the breath, learn why you should never stretch your psoas and why it doesn’t need strengthening.

Who’s it for?

Open to everyone, from teachers wanting to learn more about the Psoas to students looking to deepen their own knowledge and strengthen their practice. Also, suitable for those with chronic, but not acute back pain.

Catherine Annis is a member of the Triyoga teacher training faculty and the Teachers Advisory Committee, and is well known for her imaginative and practical approach to yoga.  Originally a professional dancer, she discovered yoga as a teenager, and has been practicing for more than 35 years.  Having explored Sivananda, Iyengar, Ashtanga and various forms of Hatha yoga, she eventually gravitated to the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli.

Catherine’s practice and teaching focuses on deepening physical awareness and alignment to reveal the natural freedom of the body, particularly the spine.  She is an attentive and thoughtful teacher, and highly skilled at adapting poses to accommodate all levels and types of students, so that everyone leaves class feeling that they have made a fresh discovery about their yoga practice.  She teaches weekly classes in London and leads retreats at various locations in India and Europe, and created the first Scaravelli inspired immersion course, which is held annually, and is regularly invited to teach workshops throughout the UK, and internationally.
