EPISODE 223: Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises [TRE]

How many people do you know who live stress-free lives without any tension or trauma? Let me guess: none! Stress, tension and even “soft trauma” are part of all our lives, and the tools most of us have to deal with these issues are limited at best. A dedicated yoga practice can offer great help, but there are new and innovative ways to balance your nervous system and release neurological tension.

In this week’s Yoga Talk Show, you’ll meet Dr. David Berceli, creator of Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE), a very powerful way to use controlled tremors to overcome inner conflict.

Listen in to learn:

  • How Dr. Berceli teaches 7 poses to incite a controlled tremor response
  • The difference between a neurological and psychological trauma
  • Neurophysiology: how your mind impacts your body and body your mind
  • Why trauma can arise from any over-stimulation to the nervous system
  • What we can learn from the animal kingdom about shaking and tremors
