Who’s This Class For?

Neurogenic Yoga™ is especially suitable for those experiencing chronic pain, daily stress & long held tension, PTSD. It is also however an opportunity to simply shake off the stress from your day or week as a means of maintaining healthy nervous system balance.

About The Class

Neurogenic Yoga™ is a revolutionary technique to heal trauma and reduce stress. It combines yoga poses and breathing with the body’s body’s natural therapeutic shaking response. The human (and animal) nervous system has an instinctual shaking response that is genetically coded to help us discharge long-held tension and trauma. It is an unconscious muscle contraction that restores the body to wholeness after stressful or traumatic events.

Vibration and shaking in the body automatically occurs when the nervous system identifies threat. Unfortunately the negative social constructs that see shaking and tremoring, as showing vulnerability or weakness, mean that this innate release mechanism is conditioned out of us at a very early age. Neurogenic Yoga reawakens the body’s intrinsic release mechanism to optimize health and wellness.

Class will begin with a 30 minute series of movements. Modifications are offered to ensure this portion is suitable for all bodies and experience levels. Absolutely no yoga experience or ability is needed. These poses will stretch and tire the psoas, and other muscles that are involved in the contraction response that occurs when the nervous system experiences stress, or feels unsafe.

Yoga movements are followed by a lying posture that safely introduces neurogenic tremoring to release physical and emotional stress and tension. Vibration usually begins in the legs and may spread throughout the entire body to release long held tension. This method is based on Dr. David Berceli’s technique of Trauma Releasing Exercises® (TRE®).

This class provides:

Six 75 minute classes in a calm and supportive environment.

Hatha Yoga Private Session

Hatha Yoga private sessions are an ideal opportunity to ask questions and work on specific goals. Some prefer to join a private session for some time before joining group class sessions, others are looking for a specific style of class that requires more individualized attention. A private session is the best way to ensure your yoga practice is tailored to your specific needs.

Please contact for more information.

Prenatal Yoga Private Session

Prenatal private sessions are a great way to spend time connecting with baby. Classes can be planned to work with special conditions, or discuss birth plans and preparation. A semi-private with your partner can be a fun bonding experience as you prepare to support each other more effectively during your pregnancy and birthing time. 

Contact for more information.

Neurogenic (TRE) Private Session

Neurogenic private sessions allow for a more personal exchange. Because neurogenic yoga may sometimes trigger emotional responses (which is good!) some prefer to tremor in a private class setting. Others prefer to experience neurogenic tremors a few times before joining a class or beginning a home practice. It is recommended that you practice with an instructor 3-5 times before practicing on your own.
