Neurogenic Yoga™ is a revolutionary technique in trauma healing and stress reduction.

This practice combines yoga asana and pranayama with the body’s natural, therapeutic shaking response. 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, or unconscious muscle contraction in order to restore the body to wholeness. When the nervous system identifies threat, vibration or shaking in the body is designed to occur automatically. However, negative social constructs and beliefs around what it means to allow ourselves to shake, tremor, or show vulnerability, condition us out of this innate release mechanism at a very early age. Neurogenic Yoga reawakens our body’s intrinsic release mechanism for optimal health.

Neurogenic Yoga is a 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®).

 

Neurogenic Yoga™ is a technique under the umbrella of Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises ® (TRE®) as developed by Dr. David Berceli.

David Berceli, Ph.D. is an international expert in the areas of trauma intervention and conflict resolution. He is also the energetic and creative founder and CEO of Trauma Recovery Services (1998). For the past 22 years he has lived and worked in nine countries providing trauma relief workshops and designing recovery programs for international organizations around the world. Dave has lived and worked extensively in Israel/Palestine, Sudan, Uganda, Kenya, Yemen, Egypt, and Lebanon. Fluent in English and Arabic, David brings a keen understanding of the intertwining dynamics of religion and ethnic customs and has developed specific processes to enable people to manage personal trauma as well as bring healing and reconciliation between diverse groups. He is the creator of a revolutionary and unique set of Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE™) that help release the deep chronic tension created in the body during a traumatic experience. David continues to be involved in trauma recovery programs not solely for the sake of reducing the suffering caused by trauma but because he has recognized globally that trauma possesses unique possibilities of transformation in the individual if they pursue their recovery process to its ultimate end.

Our integrative format gives you the unique opportunity to become certified in Neurogenic Yoga and TRE in one seamless program.

The Neurogenic Yoga and TRE Dual Certification Program is geared specifically for experienced yoga instructors (see prerequisites below) who seek to integrate therapeutic tremoring into the yoga class setting as well as facilitate TRE.

Neurogenic Yoga combines asana (postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises) with the body’s natural shaking response. This profound practice facilitates 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.

The Neurogenic Yoga and TRE Dual Certification Program is appropriate for all disciplines of yoga from restorative and therapeutic methods, to vigorous vinyasa and power yoga instructors. This training is designed to enhance your biomechanical and energetic understanding of asana and pranayama in relationship to the body’s natural tremor response; not to adopt and teach specific sequencing.
