Cultivating a Resilient Heart


SAT JAN 19TH • 1:30-3:30PM


Life is generous with unexpected twists, turns and challenges; for every one of these experiences, our body provides a natural response. Heartache, heartbreak or grief can lead to feelings of hopelessness and fear and create physical pain and numbness. As we give ourselves time to feel where we hurt, we can also learn how to comfort our sacred Heart and cultivate its innate resilience.

Join Aviva for this 90 min Forrest Yoga practice followed by TRE®. This is designed to ease out emotional holding and usher in a balance of strength, connection, insight and resilience. Give yourself the time to track how your breath and your body respond to pain and to healing. Build trust around your incredible innate ability to heal, grow and evolve.
This is an all levels practice but some prior yoga experience is suggested.

Tension + Trauma Release

Symmetry Yoga Alameda
Sat Jan 26th 1:30-3:30pm

This 2-hour workshop will include an explanation of TRE®, an all levels core awareness  series (yoga and pelvic exercises) and TRE® (Tension, Stress & Trauma Release Exercises). This is suitable for anyone with or without a regular movement practice and honors all injuries and any limited mobility.
TRE® is an innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma. Created by Dr. David Berceli, PhD, TRE® safely activates a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system. When this muscular shaking/vibrating mechanism is activated in a safe and controlled environment, the body is encouraged to return back to a state of balance.

TRE® is based on the fundamental idea, backed by recent research, that stress, tension and trauma are both psychological and physical. TRE®’s reflexive muscle vibrations generally feel pleasant and soothing. After doing TRE®, many people report feelings of peace and well-being.
