TRE exercise will help you release stress or tension from your body that accumulates from every day circumstances, difficult situations, immediate or prolonged stressful situations, or traumatic life experiences. Everyone can benefit from TRE.

This class will guide you through a set series of gentle exercises to release deep tension through neurogenic muscle tremors. The tremors will originates deep in the psoas muscles and reverberate outwards along the spine, releasing tension from the sacrum to the cranium.

During the class you will experience an increase of the resiliency of your body and move into deep relaxation that naturally reduces stress levels. You may experience the releases of emotions ranging from mild upset to severe anxiety caused by work stress, excessive worry, conflict in relationships, physical stresses or traumas from accidents. TRE has also been reported to reduce pain, increase mobility and aid in the healing of past injuries.

Introduction to Ashtanga Series are all level courses. Whether you are a complete beginner or have some past yoga experience these class covers the basic principles of the Ashtanga methodology, physically and philosophically over a set period of time. The classes will focus on foundation postures, the opening sequence to all 6 series (Lvl 1) in detail and move into the first half of Primary series (Foundation into Half Primary Lvl 2) giving the students an excellent foundation to start their individual or mysore style (Lvl 3) practice or to move into our Led Half Primary classes. 

* please note: the levels can be taken at any time. In order to attend level 3 you do not have to attend level 1 or 2. 

Level 1 is a workshop style course for students completely new to yoga or those wanting to deepen their understanding of the foundational posture (traditional standing postures) that are often practice is vinyasa style classes & are the postures every Ashtangi starts their practice with regardless of experience. 

Level 2 is a workshop style course to prepare students to safely practice half primary and for those wanting to deepen their understanding of the the first postures of Ashtanga System. This class will move through deepening students understanding of forward folds, hip openers, lotus postures, twists, backbends & headstands. 

New Level 3 is a led flow style course that will introduce students to progressively learn the breath count and sequencing of half of the primary series of Ashtanga. This course will encourage memory of the sequence, as well develop endurance, strength and proper breath and movement connection building on what has been learnt in levels 1 & 2 courses. This is also an excellent course to attend for those wanting to revisit or begin an Ashtanga practice who may already have experience with other yoga disciplines. 

All Levels Mysore Style is designed for new students to a Mysore style class or a yoga practice. Students are encourage to move into a Mysore style practice after attending Lvl 1/ Lvl 2 and/ Lvl 3 although no prerequisite is required. New students to yoga are also welcome to also drop in and learn Ashtanga in a traditional way.
