TRE: Tension Release Exercises

10:30a.m. to 12:00p.m.
Trade School Indy
1125 Brookside Ave
Indianapolis US

Have you experienced past traumas or regularly face small, everyday tensions and stressors in your life? Come “Shake it out”! This is not an exercise class in the traditional sense. After doing a series of 7 stretches & easy exercises, you will lie on the floor allowing the body to naturally tremor. TRE is based on the fundamental idea, backed by recent research, that stress, tension and trauma is both psychological and physical. TRE evokes reflexive muscle vibrations generally regarded as pleasant and soothing. After doing TRE, many people report feelings of peace and well-being. Animals shake when they are afraid. Humans do it too; although, we have been culturally trained to think of it as a bad thing. It is the body's way of discharging the extra energy after some kind of stressful event. All exercises are adapted to accommodate physical limitations. *Students should wear comfortable yoga or loose fitting clothes and yoga mats or towels are strongly recommended as you will be lying on the floor.
