Are you feeling tense, stressed and anxious with the uncertainty and worries of our current pandemic and climate crisis?

What if your body has a natural way to release muscular tension and stress and restore resilience?

As coaches you will know that stress is a normal, everyday, physiological reaction in the body. It’s a part of a healthy nervous system, a mobilising force, vital for our ongoing motivation, safety and survival. However, if we stay overly -stressed for too long, the resultant physiology will have a negative effect on our physical, mental & emotional wellbeing.  Many opinion- leaders now recognise that stress is stored in the body and that we need to focus our interventions on the connectedness of body and mind.

This session will introduce you to TRE® – Tension, Stress, and Trauma Release Exercises.
TRE is a natural self -care technique, developed by David Berceli PhD, a body worker and therapist working in war-torn countries. He observed that our bodies naturally want to tremor after a shock. All mammals have this innate ability to shake off tension and return to normal after a threat. The difference is, as humans have supressed this natural discharge mechanism. We view it as a symptom that something’s wrong or a sign of weakness, but in doing so we inhibit the very mechanism that can keep us healthy and balanced.

In this safe, interactive session you’ll gain a basic understanding of TRE as a physiological, non- invasive, self -care technique. We will explain how practising TRE helps you harness the body’s innate ability to release tension, rebalance and build resilience. Used as a regular practice, TRE can help you become more present, relieve anxiety, pain and stiffness, bringing flow, aliveness and clarity to your body and mind.

As in coaching, TRE requires us to be present, in the moment, without judgment, and maintain trust and safety. Once learnt, you can do TRE in as little as 10 minutes with minimal physical effort, using it as a self-care practise for the rest of your life.

TRE can help us shape our own nervous system. It involves learning to let the body lead and let the mind release being in constant control. Sometimes we forget to connect with ourselves, get stuck in thinking or doing mode, rather than tuning into our bodies and just being present to the messages the body is sending.

Join us to explore ways to find calm amongst the chaos and to discover how TRE supports well-being and functioning on so many levels. At the end of this session we hope you will be curious to explore TRE further, either as a restorative practice for yourself, or for your clients.
