Neurogenic Yoga™ is a revolutionary technique in trauma healing and stress reduction.
This practice combines yoga asana and pranayama with the body’s natural, therapeutic shaking response. This shaking response in humans, much the same as the instinctual shaking in animals, is the nervous system’s way of discharging long-held tension and trauma, or unconscious muscle contraction in order to restore the body to wholeness. When the nervous system identifies threat, vibration or shaking in the body is designed to occur automatically. However, negative social constructs and beliefs around what it means to allow ourselves to shake, tremor, or show vulnerability, condition us out of this innate release mechanism at a very early age. Neurogenic Yoga™ reawakens our body’s intrinsic release mechanism for optimal health.
This technique is a simple, gentle, and profound practice that facilities the lengthening and relaxation of the psoas muscle and the release of physical and emotional stress and tension. During a Neurogenic Yoga™ session, we safely self induce therapeutic tremoring.
This class begins with an explanation of the Neurogenic Yoga™ process after which you will then be safely guided through the practice and tremoring process by a certified Neurogenic Yoga™ provider. The class will end with a group check-in, discussion, and you will be given after-care instructions.
*To ensure that everyone in attendance receives personalized attention and feels safe to have their process, these classes are limited to six people at a time. Please register in advance to reserve your spot before the start of the event.
