​​Yoga + TRE for Chronic Pain

Symmetry Yoga Alameda
Sat Sept 14th 3-5pm

Chronic pain is not a simple sensation. It is strongly influenced by the ways in which the brain processes the pain signals. In fact, chronic pain can provoke strong emotional reactions, such as fear, anxiety, or even terror, depending on what the individual believes about their pain signals.
If there is any good news about chronic pain, it is that, to a certain extent, the brain can learn how to manage and decrease the sensation of pain using a combination of deep focus, breathing, tension release and imagery techniques.
Join Aviva Levine for a 2-hour workshop integrating visualization, Yoga and TRE to invite rewiring the brain from persistently communicating pain signals that no longer have injury to heal. Come explore; Neuroplasticity (the ability of the brain to change continuously throughout life), how emotions can affect the experience of pain and gain tools to move towards a more hopeful, safe and resilient relationship with pain.

​​Psoas Love Level 2/3

Leela Yoga Alameda
Sat Sept 21st 1:30-4:30pm

Dive deeper into the physical and energetic exploration of the Psoas! An evolution of the highly popular Awakening the Wisdom of the Psoas, this workshop is designed for the more seasoned practitioner. Listen to the more subtle messages within the body as you awaken and release this powerful and wise area. This is a 2 hour Forrest Yoga inspired sequence followed by TRE® (tension, stress and trauma release exercises.) Previous yoga experience required.
The Psoas, a bio-intelligent tissue often referred to as the ‘muscle of the soul,’ is the deepest muscle of the human body. The stress of our fast-paced modern lifestyle can chronically trigger and tighten the psoas, which can lead to a host of painful conditions including low back pain, sacroiliac pain, sciatica, disc problems, scoliosis, hip degeneration, knee pain, menstruation pain, infertility, immune system and adrenal gland depletion and digestive complications.
Influenced by her own journey of debilitating dis-ease, Aviva created (and continues to evolve) these workshops to share her fascination with the Psoas.
