If you bring forth that which is within you,
Then that which is within you
Will be your salvation.
If you do not bring forth that which is

One Day Neurogenic Yoga Intensive 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. 

Date/Time: Sat, Jan 14, 9-5pm


Location: The Art of Movement Institute,  29 Beaumont Avenue, Holy Trinity Anglican Church parish (Formerly Exploits Traditional Karate Club, Yoga & Fitness Studio) 
Appropriate for: Everyone. No yoga experience of any type required. This practice can be done with wall or chair support.
Bring: Yoga mat, pillows, blanket, notebook, pen
In this workshop you will learn:
Why talk therapy alone is rarely effective.
How the nervous system responds to stress, tension, and trauma.
The role of the physical body in long term stress and trauma.
How to release the body’s innate balancing responses.
How to continuously measure and adjust the intensity of the practice for your needs.
How to develop a home practice for long term nervous system maintenance, trauma prevention, and restoration of goodness.
Workshop Format This workshop will utilize lecture, breathing techniques, guided relaxation (yoga nidra), two neurogenic yoga practices, and discussion. We will explore the nature of our ancient nervous system and how to maximize its capacity to reduce stress, relieve tension, and begin to heal trauma by triggering our innate healing response.

Bobby Bessey, B.Sc., RYT 500, RPYT, Neurogenic Yoga, TRE, Yoga Teacher Trainer

Bobby has been a teacher and student of yoga for more than two decades. She has studied in numerous yoga traditions within Canada, and has spent extended periods of time studying yoga in both India and Japan. Her love of the powerful spiritual energy of India continues to call her back regularly to deepen her practice. It is in India, the birth place of yoga, that Bobby also studies the traditional medicinal practices of ayurveda. She combines these sister sciences in her teachings to create classes that promote wellness in mind, body and soul.

Bobby trained and began teaching neurogenic and TRE (tension and trauma release exercises) to deepen her understanding of the impact of tension and trauma on nervous system function. She has been working with clients for many years using yoga breathing, visualizations, guided meditations, and movement to release fear and promote wellness. The revolutionary practice of TRE as developed by Dr. David Bercelli has added to her healing toolbox and further enhanced her appreciation for the resilience of human body and spirit. She is excited to help others learn to use this technique to release tension, stress, and trauma.

Bobby is the creator, director and lead instructor of the Shakti Yoga Method 200 hour yoga teacher training. This program, along with her Prenatal Yoga TT, Ayurvedic TT, Yin Yoga TT, and Yoga Nidra YTT are in demand both locally and internationally. While she does carve out time each year to instruct trainings outside Canada, her hatha, yin, prenatal, postnatal classes, yoga workshops, and birth preparation sessions are held throughout the year in St. John’s, NL, and surrounding areas.
