Neurogenic Yoga: Introductory Workshop with Maria Alfaro, E-RYT
Saturday, June 8 • 3:00–6:00 p.m.
Neurogenic Yoga, a revolutionary new approach to trauma healing and stress reduction, is an integrative method that combines Yoga asana and pranayama with neurogenic tremors. These tremors are a natural response of the body and the nervous system’s way of discharging long-held tension or unconscious muscle contraction caused by everyday stress and traumatic life experiences, in order to restore the body to wholeness.
The tremor response is based on Dr. David Berceli’s technique of Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises® (TRE®), which has been taught successfully worldwide for decades. Most people describe this experience as pleasant and report many improvements in their physical and emotional state.
This workshop not only allows participants to experience Neurogenic Yoga but also gives them a foundation for understanding the tremor response and how to integrate into their lives. Learn about the history and origin of Neurogenic Yoga and how it helps to relieve stress, tension, and trauma patterns.
Neurogenic Yoga will help you
- decrease anxiety
- release chronic tension
- discharge emotional and physical trauma
- increase energy and flexibility
- improve sleep and mood
- relieve aches, pains, and symptoms of fibromyalgia and sciatica
This workshop is appropriate for people of all ages and level of fitness. No previous knowledge of Yoga is required.
