Topic: Awaken Your Psoas
Join us for this invigorating and challenging yoga practice to uplift your energy, so you feel powerful, connected, relaxed, and energized in your body, mind, heart, and spirit.
This yoga series synergistically combines standing poses with hip openers to awaken the psoas and activate the gluteus maximus (buttuck) muscles. The psoas muscle is often a “hidden” or dormant muscle, that we first must isolate in each pose – usually by contraction – to awaken it and hence bring it back into our consciousness.
The strength of the psoas muscle is essential for the health of the lower back and creates upright posture from pelvic floor, upward towards the upper spine. Awakening the psoas also relieves sciatica and creates more freedom of movement at the hip joint.

I had the distinct pleasure of studying yoga and taking classes with Roger and Kari in Madison for around four years. I learned volumes! As another student put it, their method of teaching is like the “philosopher’s stone” applied to yoga. Classes were both insightful and delightful on account of Kari’s whimsical sense of humor. The vibe was intense and focused yet without taking anything too seriously. We had fun while devoting ourselves to precise alignment. I highly recommend their Iyengar-style technique and Kari‘s personal teaching style!"
I met Kari on my travels in Pai, (Thailand). I was so lucky to have the chance to practice with her on my morning sessions. Kari showed me with a few words and gentle adjustments the way to open my heart. But more valuable to integrate & strengthen that open heart. Kari is an authentic,natural born teacher who shares her experience from deep down in her beautiful heart! Everlasting gratitude."
Kari Tomashik is a true and kind teacher of Eischens Yoga. She has taken Roger Eischen’s groundbreaking work much further. Kari is both a very clear communicator who can help the uninitiated and experienced practitioner to learn about their body/mind/spirit, and an experimenter who keeps her ego out of the way of her focus on the learner.
I have known Kari for a number of years. She is unequaled in her dedication to using yoga as a vehicle to understand her place in the world and make an impact in the lives of those she encounters. She has a deep knowledge of the workings of the human body – derived from her personal practice and her many years of teaching. She approaches each individual as a unique person and treats all with respect. Besides that, she has a great sense of humor and an assured yet gentle manner."
