Learn to shake it off! This 3 week series invites you to organically unwind layers of tension in the body with the sweet release of TRE® ​(​Tension, Stress & Trauma Release Exercises)​ ​This​ course​ is suitable for anyone with or without a regular movement practice and honors all injuries and any limited mobility.​

Prior experience with TRE® is suggested but not required as this is a workshop to explore the next levels of neurogenic tremors in a group setting. ​Private sessions with Aviva are available at Innerstellar — inquire at the front desk to book an introductory session. ​

​ABOUT​ TRE®​:​

TRE® (Tension, Stress & Trauma Release Exercise) ​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 is 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.

Tension is who you think you should be.  Relaxation is who you are. -Chinese Proverb

Are you feeling overworked, drained or sensitive to the world? Are you curious about developing your awareness of the subtle body and connecting to your inner intelligence? Do you need some love and​​ kindness via a healing and skillful touch?

Join Kari and Michelle for a deeply relaxing and restorative afternoon.  Class features a simple Yin and Restorative yoga practice, during which Kari and Michelle will offer nurturing hands-on work inspired by trainings in Cranio Sacral Therapy.  Feel first-hand the power of more quiet practices of yoga.  Kari will guide you through a series of long stays in yin and restorative poses.  As you learn to relax the body into the moment, through support from props and mindful awareness to sensation, the mind becomes more attentive to the body.  Beneath the typical thought patterns and through the body’s language of sensation lives our inner wisdom… a place that knows what’s right for you and how to live healthily.  In this practice Kari and Michelle will spend quality time working with each student in gentle touch that encourages the body into progressive relaxation.

Class limited to a small group to maximize hands-on attention to each student. All levels welcome, no matter your flexibility, fitness level or experience.

AWakening the wisdom of the psoas

WITH:  Aviva Levine
WHEN: Sunday, November 12th, 1:30-4pm
COST: $40 Early Bird if paid in full by 10/29; $45 thereafter | REGISTER

The Psoas, a bio-intelligent tissue often referred to as the ‘muscle of the soul,’ is the deepest muscle of the human body. Its resilience affects structural balance, flexibility, strength, range of motion, joint mobility, and organ functioning. The stress of our fast-paced modern lifestyle can chronically trigger and tighten the psoas – making it literally ready to run, fight or freeze. This 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 this workshop to share her fascination and evolving wisdom of the psoas. This 2-hour workshop is designed to begin to awaken, heal and release this powerful, wise area with a deep Forrest Yoga inspired sequence followed by TRE®. All levels welcome.
