Symmetry Yoga Alameda
Sat May 11th 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.
