It stabilizes the postural and energetic core of the human being. When startled or under mental or emotional stress, the Psoas contracts and constricts causing further imbalance.

We will learn some basic techniques, exercises and practices to foster this process.

More About Olivia:
Olivia Eng is raising funds as part of her S.C.A.R.S. (Strength, Courage, and Resilience of the Soul) project to offer a summer workshop series to about 15 youth at Community Education Partnerships this July; an amazing non-profit in Oakland that supports the education and families of Bay Area children facing homelessness and housing insecurity. S.C.A.R.S will facilitate collaborative arts, healing, and wellness through dance, poetry, storytelling, art, therapeutic modalities, and herbal medicine! The goal is to share our knowledge and skills to help others create a holistic “toolbox” that can facilitate their own healing, wellness, and resilience.
The funds we raise would support:
1) Supplies to create a “toolbox” of arts and holistic wellness items related to the workshops for each participant
2) Stipends for the teaching artists/facilitators
