Yoga to Nurture the Nervous System and Build Resilience- TRE/Neurogenic Yoga Friendly
This class incorporates specific soothing and strengthening sequences and strategies to build resilience. As we become intimate with our own nervous system responses, we can begin to literally “move” through new and old stressors and trauma. Together will use movement, sound, shaking, stillness, rhythm, breath, posture and guided visualization to help us nurture the nervous system and move into growth. During the latter part of the class, participants will have the choice to follow a winding down sequence, engage in free form flow, shake, or for those who have a TRE/Neurogenic yoga practice, elicit our natural healing vibration mechanism (neurogenic tremors). This class is for everyone, from long time yogis to those who are new to the healing benefits of yoga. The group experience actually helps us feel safer biologically, so the healing process can deepen. It’s not the events that cause damage to our well being, it’s how we respond to them!
If you want to engage neurogenic tremors, please take an introductory TRE class, many of which are offered online at this time.
TRE (Tension and Trauma Release Exercises) and Neurogenic Yoga assist the body in releasing deep contracted patterns of stress, tension and trauma. By allowing ourselves to shake or vibrate (by inducing therapeutic muscle or neurogenic tremors) in a safe and controlled environment, tension patterns can release. This results in soothing or down-regulating the nervous system. The participant practices at his/her own pace and time throughout the session. The process is simple to do, can be modified for any body and can be learned quickly. Reported benefits of TRE and Neurogenic Yoga include reduced anxiety, stress, symptoms of PTSD as well as reduced negative auto-immune responses. People also report experiencing enhanced energy, endurance and flexibility as well as improved sleeping patterns.

- Yoga sequence
- You choose to engage in wind down sequence, spontaneous movement or Shake it off!
