Yoga & TRE® Workshop
***This workshop counts as 3 hours toward the Laughing River Yoga 300 hr YTT Program.
Learn how to use the powerful healing practices of TRE® (tension and trauma releasing exercises) to elicit your body’s own natural neurogenic tremor response in this this immersive 3 hour workshop.
You might recall a time when you had to speak in front of a crowd and your hands were shaking; maybe you found yourself shaking after an accident; or you’ve noticed your dog shaking during a thunderstorm. We shake with excitement, we shake with anger, we shake with grief. This shaking or trembling is part of a body’s healing response to stress and/or trauma. We learn in our culture that shaking or trembling is a “problem to be diagnosed, fixed, and treated.” Sometimes it is, but oftentimes our conditioning teaches us it’s a problem. In TRE® we view this tremor response as an automatic function of your nervous system in response to stress that is healing!
Your body is made not only to experience stress and trauma, but to heal and resolve the effects of excessive tension in your bodymind. When your body is more settled, your mind settles, and your thoughts about what you are feeling do not pierce your peace and ease. Using the latest neuroscience in TRE®, we will work together to create a safe enough container for you to experience this tremor response in a non-distressed state, releasing habitual contraction patterns in your body.
In this workshop we will explore a variety of ways to stop, start, and relate to your TRE® response including: mindfulness and breathing practices, TRE® exercises, and yoga postures.
