TRE (Tension Release Exercise)
A simple set of guided exercises that allow deeply held tension to be released, whether it stems from stress, trauma or repetitive movement conditioning.
TRE stands for Tension Release Exercise. It is a simple set of guided exercises that will trigger the natural tremor mechanism in the body, allowing deeply held tension to be released. The premise of the concept is that tension, whether it stems from a more physical, emotional or psychological aspect, be it stress, trauma, or the repetitive movement we take our bodies through in our busy and sedentary urban lives, all impacts the body release and integration can only really happen through the body.
You will learn how to let go in a controlled manner, through activating body tremors. This in turn will allow you to better harness your energy, typically resulting in a state of energised calm after the session.
2.30pm - 4pm
