TRE®
Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises Introductory Workshop

Tremoring on the cliff.jpg

MARCH 10

6 - 8pm  $55

TRE is a simple, gentle and profound technique that facilities the lengthening and relaxation of the psoas muscle and the release of physical and emotional tension and stress. The TRE exercises mildly tire the legs, triggering an involuntary shaking and trembling response, which begins in the legs and often spreads throughout the body. This natural response is the nervous system’s way of discharging long-held tension and unconscious body contraction, caused by everyday stress and traumatic life experiences, in order to restore the body to wholeness.

 

TRE was developed by Dr. David Berceli, a bio-energetic therapist and social worker, who used it successfully worldwide working with soldiers, firefighters, police officers and survivors of war, natural disasters and other traumatic circumstances to help alleviate the many symptoms of post-traumatic stress. TRE is taught in over 80 countries worldwide.

Reported benefits include:

*Decrease anxiety

*Release chronic tension

*Discharge emotional and physical trauma

*Increase energy and flexibility

*Improve sleep and mood

*Decrease of aches, pains and symptoms of fibromyalgia, sciatica and other chronic conditions

 

This workshop is suitable for all ages and fitness levels as the exercises can be modified to accommodate any body’s need.

INTRO to CHANTING
A Kirtan Workshop

MAY 12
6:00 - 8:00pm
$30

Come explore the heart-opening practice of Bhakti Yoga and enjoy an inspiring evening of chanting mantras, storytelling, and community.

No singing or chanting experience is necessary.

 

We'll do some light stretches, pranayama (breath), and chant the night away. In this workshop we'll discuss chanting, what it is and where it comes from, and the many benefits of chanting mantras. We'll dive into some of the lore and mythology of Hindu deities, and how the stories may manifest and guide our day-to-day.

 

Kirtan is not a performance, but a group offering. We will collectively be using our voices to participate, creating a vibration and resonance of mantra and myth, in an uplifting and cathartic experience.

Option to bring an offering for the altar (candles, murtis, flowers, crystals, photos, feathers, trinkets and other treasures).

SOMATIC BREATH WORK JOURNEY

1 receive.jpg

JUNE 9
6:00 - 8:00pm

$35

Breath work journeys are an embodiment experience that take you out of your thinking mind and into your body’s electrical network. It lets you release unneeded energy within this network caused by repeating thoughts, feelings, and old narratives by discharging it out through your body.

Your nervous system is the electrical network of your being. Over time, unresolved trauma or chronic stress causes dis-regulation of this network. When dis-regulated, difficulties in your personal or professional life arise. When you heal trauma and stress, you heal the electrical network of your nervous system. When you heal the nervous system, you heal the emotional self so your authentic self can emerge.

This breath work journey experience employs circular connected breathing coupled with rhythmic music to produce a cathartic emotional release. This release may be in the form of moving, shaking, yelling, crying, or laughing. Using the breath, you will engage your innate ability to heal and sweep out any defenses, blockages, restrictions, or pains that hold you back from who you are and how you want to show up in this world.

 

During our time together, I’ll be taking you through a 45 minute Breathwork journey.
The whole experience usually is about 2 hours and here’s the structure:

- Brief Educational Chat around Regulating the Nervous System

- Group Shares & Intention Setting

- Practicing Various Breathing Techniques

- The Breathwork Journey (just you and your breath, this is the bulk of the experience - approx 45 mins)

- Journaling & Sharing

- Closing Chat Around Integrating this Experience into Daily Life for Maximum Benefits


How to Prep:
Wear something breathable and comfy.
Do not eat 3 hours prior to our session.
