Neurogenic Yoga

 

Now taking registration for Jan-March 2023 classes. Contact Bobby@ShaktiYogaMethod.com if you would like to join a session mid-session.

 

Neurogenic Yoga™ is a revolutionary technique to heal trauma and reduce stress.

Neurogenic yoga 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.

 

What will I experience?

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®).

What People Are Saying

I can’t describe it completely but I feel like something has released or shifted in my body and mind. At first it was hard to believe that I was not doing the shaking on purpose, eventually I realized that this was indeed an instinctive physical release that I was simply allowing. I felt really good afterwards and experienced a powerful release of tightness from an injury that happened years ago.
K. Bishop, NL, Canada

At first, there was a calming tingling sensation in my leg muscles, then it progressed to a fluttering like butterfly wings , and finally to larger beating type movements. This sequence of events changed location to different muscles during the session. It was a very welcoming experience which I didn’t want to end. In the hours and days that followed, I felt an overall calmness throughout my body and mind.
N. Hughs, NL, Canada

This class was lovely. I felt very nurtured and safe with Bobby’s instruction. It helped me connect on a deeper level with my physical body.
M. Sheppard, NL, Canada

I wasn’t sure what to expect from my first neurogenic yoga class with Bobby, but the experience has left me wanting to pursue a regular practice. The tremors were a new sensation for me, and although I felt like I was processing some big things during the tremoring, it was also so relieving. Looking forward to my next class!
