Symmetry Yoga and Aviva Levine are proud to present, TRE® (Tension, Stress & Trauma Release Exercise). TRE® is an innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma. Created by Dr. David Berceli, PhD, TRE® safely activates a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system. When this muscular shaking/vibrating mechanism is activated in a safe and controlled environment, the body is encouraged to return back to a state of balance.

TRE® is based on the fundamental idea, backed by recent research, that stress, tension and trauma is both psychological and physical. TRE®’s reflexive muscle vibrations generally feel pleasant and soothing. After doing TRE®, many people report feelings of peace and well-being.

Our fast paced modern lifestyle (which runs on the adrenaline of our sympathetic nervous system) chronically triggers and tightens the psoas – making it literally ready to run, freeze or fight. A constantly contracting psoas due to stress or tension, eventually begins to shorten leading to a host of painful conditions including low back pain, sacroiliac pain, sciatica, disc problems, scoliosis, hip degeneration, knee pain, menstruation pain, infertility, and digestive complications.

This workshop will include an explanation of TRE® and a few yoga poses followed by TRE®.

Trained as a Forrest Yoga teacher under Ana Forrest and recently certified in TRE®, Aviva Levine is fascinated with the body’s ability to heal and transform. Her teaching focuses on helping others experience this evolution in themselves. She will guide you into a deeper connection with your body through a practice that is intense-yet-playful. With compassion and humor; she creates classes to help you move from struggle and limitation, towards freedom of body and mind.

Finding comfort in movement, Aviva studied; ballet, jazz, and modern dance and played competitive ultimate frisbee. After a lifetime of physical activity, multiple injuries led her to Forrest Yoga and TRE® Her classes are an offering of the incredible benefits through simple techniques to heal; chronic pain, physical and emotional trauma, and injuries.

Aviva lives in the Bay Area, and joyfully shares her ever growing bag of tricks in private and group instruction.
