Trauma and stress release through the bodies natural tremor response. 

TRE® & Yoga workshop

 

This practice combines yoga & TRE® which stimulates the body’s natural, therapeutic shaking response. This shaking response in humans, much the same as the instinctual shaking in animals (read: dog in a thunderstorm), is the nervous system’s way of discharging long-held tension, or unconscious muscle contractions held in the body (sometimes as a result of accumulated stress, trauma, injury, surgery, or habitual contraction patterns/poor posture) in order to restore the body to the felt sense of wholeness. When the nervous system identifies threat, vibration or shaking in the body is designed to occur automatically. However, negative social constructs and beliefs around what it means to allow ourselves to shake, tremor, or show vulnerability, condition us out of this innate release mechanism at an early age. TRE® reawakens our body’s intrinsic release mechanism for optimal health.

 

TRE® & Yoga is a simple, gentle and profound practice that facilitates the lengthening and relaxation of the psoas muscle and the release of physical and emotional stress and tension. During this TRE® & Yoga workshop, you will learn about the stress response, polyvagal theory and how yoga and TRE can support a healthy nervous system. I will then guide you through a series of exercises and yoga postures designed to elicit the tremor response. TRE is intended to be used as a self-help method that is easily learned, has immediate effects and can be integrated into a simple daily routine to help restore a sense of inner-peace and relaxation. This method is based on Dr. David Berceli’s technique of Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises® (TRE®). www.traumaprevention.com
