TRE stands for Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises. It's a set of simple yet powerful techniques designed to help the body release deep-seated tension and stress. Developed by Dr. David Berceli, TRE involves a series of exercises that induce a natural shaking or trembling response in the muscles. This neurogenic tremor is the body's way of releasing stored tension and calming the nervous system.
Through the practice of TRE, individuals can experience a range of benefits, including stress reduction, increased relaxation, improved sleep, and a greater sense of overall well-being. It's particularly effective for those who have experienced trauma, as it provides a gentle and natural way for the body to release and heal. TRE can be easily learned and practiced both individually and in group settings
Neurogenic Yoga is a unique approach to yoga that combines traditional yoga postures with innovative techniques to release tension and promote the natural healing ability of the body. Developed by trauma specialist and yoga teacher, TRE (Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises) practitioner, and founder of Neurogenic Yoga, David Emerson, this practice focuses on cultivating a neurogenic tremor.
During Neurogenic Yoga, practitioners engage in gentle movements, stretches, and postures to awaken the body's natural shaking or trembling response. This neurogenic tremor is similar to the shaking that occurs in TRE and is considered a therapeutic and self-regulating mechanism for releasing stress and tension. By incorporating this trembling response into yoga, Neurogenic Yoga aims to enhance the mind-body connection, reduce stress, and promote a sense of well-being.
It's particularly beneficial for individuals looking to combine the benefits of yoga with a focus on releasing deep-seated tension and trauma stored in the body. The practice is adaptable to various fitness levels and can be a valuable tool for those seeking a holistic approach to wellness.
