Tension and Trauma Release Exercises (TRE®) Class
I am delighted to invite you to participate in my next TRE Class coming up on Saturday 18th November in Mona Vale.
The TRE sessions are a great opportunity to release deeply held patterns of tension and stress, as well as to deepen connection with your body and mind, leading to greater ease, groundedness and presence.
A little bit of background...
When we feel under stress or in danger, our body releases stress hormones and increases blood flow to specific muscles of our body to prepare us to either fight or run away. An important set of muscles used in this process is the psoas (also known as hip flexor muscle), which stand guard to protect the centre of gravity of the human body.
During any traumatic or stressful experience, the psoas muscles contract in order to protect the body from harm. When the psoas muscle doesn’t return to a relaxed state after the stressful event, they remain vulnerable to continued stimulation from even minor amounts of stress, setting up a vicious cycle of endless stress and anxiety as well as psychosomatic problems.
What is TRE?
TRE consist of six gentle exercises that are designed to stress the psoas muscle that reply purely on the body’s natural ability to trigger tremors. This releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system. When this natural mechanism is activated in a safe environment, the body is encouraged to return back to a state of balance. This therapeutic tremoring helps the body release deep muscular patterns of stress, tension, and even trauma.
What to expect on the day
The session will last for about 90min, it will include an introduction and explanation about TRE, space for any questions you might have. I will then start the exercises followed by some time for tremoring and movement. The session will finish with a guided meditation, closing circle and optional cuppa after! Below are the details for the session:
