Booty, Breath & TRE

  • Tension Release Exercise: Stress (and trauma) can lead to chronic tension in the body that can manifest as pain in the back, hips (sciatica), neck or shoulders. Tension can affect our breathing, posture and general physical and emotional well-being. Trembling after a stressful event is a normal bodily experience that its rid of excess energy induced by stress. In this class, we will go through a set of exercises that will evoke a therapeutic tremor that releases tension and deep muscle contraction.
