Neurogenic Yoga Workshop

Gentle Yoga With TRE

Deeply Nourishing Stress Release followed by Yoga Nidra

with Jo Hamilton

Saturday 26th September 2020

From 14.00 – 17.00 pm

At the Lotus Loft

Top Floor, 25 Southernhay East ( above Winkworths), Exeter, EX1 1QP

Accessible to all levels Neurogenic Yoga™ is a revolutionary technique in trauma healing and stress reduction.

This 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 practice, we safely self induce therapeutic vibration using yoga postures and breath. Often vibration begins in the legs and may spread throughout the entire body. This method is based on Dr. David Berceli’s technique of Trauma Releasing Exercises® (TRE®). 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,whether emotional or physical, in order to restore the body to wholeness.

Jo will lead you through a gentle practice, awakening your instinctive tremor release which is often described as a pleasurable, comforting, some say meditative experience. Jo will then complete the session guiding you to melt into a relaxing Yoga Nidra practice.

Cost £35.00

*FREE MINDFULNESS ORIENTATION AND TASTER EXPERIENCE

 14th January 12.00 -14.00

Exeter Natural Health Centre, Queen Walk, 83-84 Queen St, Exeter

If you are curious about joining the 8 week MBSR Course, you are invited to come to a taster session to really understand what the MBSR course offers you.

This course follows the Gold Standard MBSR – Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Curriculum. The most highly effective, robustly researched and endorsed programme in the world developed by Dr Jon Kabat Zinn and Mark Williams of Oxford University.

The majority of people who complete the MBSR Course report:

Greater energy and enthusiasm for life

Improved Sleep

Increased ability to relax

Reductions in pain

Improved resilience and ability to cope with short and long term stressful situations

Feeling a deeper sense of peace.

In each session we will be developing different aspects of mindfulness practice  

exploring new skills to add to your toolkit, in a gentle approach,

 enabling you to better meet life’s challenges.

 

Between sessions you will be given simple mindfulness for life tools to develop a steady comfortable practice at home.

What do you need to bring? Just you!

Oh… and a commitment to yourself is really key. Meditation practice is a bit like cleaning your teeth. It’s a habit that we make time for every day. When we decide to give ourselves the gift of this daily meditation practice, we begin from day one to transform our relationship with our life.

You will be provided with a Course Workbook and downloadable Guided Meditations for home practice.

You’ll also be invited to attend a one-day retreat as part of this programme.

Feedback from the previous course:

“Jo’s 8 week mindfulness course was a real awakening for me.  I loved every minute of our two hour weekly sessions despite my initial doubt that mindfulness and meditation would benefit me as much as it has. Our ‘homework’ was to do to a daily practice which was challenging at first, but when I wholly committed I was blown away to how it made me feel.  I always felt calmer after whichever practice I chose to follow, and more positive about myself and life in general . Although finding the time to do the daily mindfulness was sometimes difficult , without doubt it was 100% worth the effort and really important to keep it up regularly.

‘Jo’s gentle empathy and creative guidance kept me on track and I am still practicing most days and feel lighter and definitely happier in my life.’    

I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is curious to try out mindfulness.”

“Thankyou for the opportunity to reconnect with the practice of mindfulness. Each time I reconnect, my ability to be present in the moment becomes a little stronger. I love that you always put your heart and soul into everything you do, it conveys such love and respect for those who you work with.”
