About The Workshop

Did you know that the psoas muscle, along with other muscles involved in nervous system activation, can hold tension and trauma long after a stressor or trauma has ended? Neurogenic yoga is a revolutionary technique that awakens the body’s instinctive tremoring response to restore wholeness after stressful and traumatic events. Unfortunately this unconscious muscle contraction is conditioned out of us at an early age due to societal constructs that see shaking and tremoring as showing vulnerability or weakness.

This is a one day workshop of deep personal exploration. Learn how the nervous system and body tissue can hold anxiety, practice tension and trauma release techniques, and enjoy a day of deep relaxation.

This workshop provides:

  • Lecture
  • Breathing techniques
  • Guided relaxation (yoga nidra)
  • Two neurogenic yoga practices
  • Discussion

About The Workshop

Pranayama (Yoga Breathing Techniques) have long been considered one of the most powerful aspects of a yoga practice. Ancient texts clearly indicate that one should only begin the process of pranayama exploration with an experienced teacher. This caution was attributed to pranayama’s impact on every system in the physical, as well as mental, emotional, and energetic bodies.

The benefits ascribed to practicing pranayama throughout history have been extensive and profound. Modern day science has now given us opportunity to discover how and why these effects occur, and which techniques can be applied to impact specific conditions. Learn how to use pranayama to optimize the health and wellness of yourself, and your loved ones, in this three hour workshop that digs into the traditions of pranayama, and the modern day science that supports and expands upon this ancient science of breath.

This is a three hour workshop that will present the newest science perspectives on the ancient practices of pranayama. The information will be presented in an interactive format that will include performing asana and pranayama techniques to internalize the impact of these powerful breathing methods. Find out how breathing poorly can result in, or exacerbate, various immune and cardiac dysfunction, as well as common issues such as snoring, sleep apnea, post-covid/virus symptoms, and sinus complaints, to name a few. The great news is that just as we can breathe ourselves into illness, we can also breathe our way out. Ancient and modern insights are combined in this session to help you pay attention to your breath and learn how to utilize it for good!
