TRE Workshop (Trauma/Tension Release Exercises)
TRE (Trauma/Tension Releasing Exercises) was developed to help alleviate the many symptoms of trauma and stress. It is a gentle, simple, and profound technique that facilitates the body's natural desire to be in a state of equilibrium when tension or a drive has been reduced or eliminated.
Six simple exercises will work the legs, tiring them and creating a trembling response that often spreads throughout the body. This gentle shaking is actually the nervous system's way of discharging long-held tension or unconscious muscle contractions in order to restore the body to wholeness. Experience calm, relaxation, and presence in your body; Come home to your Self.
About the instructor: Serena Lucchesi, E-RYT is a graduate of the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health.
Yoga Workshop: Hip & Shoulder Openers
In this workshop, you will move slowly and deliberately through a variety of specific hip and shoulder stretches. In addition to lengthening the surrounding musculature, this subtle movement will target the connective tissue surrounding the hip and shoulder joints. Healthy range of movement in the hips and shoulders are integral to healthy posture and joint mobility. Leave feeling lighter and more spacious within your own body! All levels welcome. Instructor Eileen Gulik began her journey into yoga in 2005, when she discovered a deep relaxation and calm after practicing. She has more than 800 hours of training with various master teachers such as Jean Mazzei and Rod Stryker. Her strongest asset as a teacher is creating an environment of non-judgment for her students to play and explore in class.
