Shake It Off! Neurogenic Yoga Workshop



Jennica Mills

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. 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 an off-shoot of TRE(Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises), a body-centered therapy, I’ve been studying, practicing and teaching for the past few years.  It has changed the way I move in my body and given me a clarity and equanimity I had not previously experienced. It is a perfect complement to my long-time yoga practice and Neurogenic Yoga brings the two together in a perfect way. This workshop is appropriate for beginners, serious practitioners, therapists and anyone open to moving more deeply into their body.”

balance yoga lounge will host a one-day Neurogenic Yoga workshop, January 24, 2015 (9AM-4:30PM)


This 6-hour experiential workshop will include an introduction and deeper understanding of self induced therapeutic tremoring and its history and origin in Dr. David Berceli’s technique of TRE. Participants will experience 2 Neurogenic Yoga classes including yoga asana, pranayama and therapeutic tremoring.

Most people describe this experience as pleasant and relaxing and report many improvements in their physical and emotional state.

This workshop is open to the public, and is appropriate for people of all level of fitness.

*NOTE: Pregnant women are welcome to attend and perform the Yoga exercises but are generally not advised to perform the tremoring component. Shaking and tremoring, however often occur naturally during or after birth and can assist with the birth process and a more complete bodily recovery.


Participants will be introduced to:

– The therapeutic shaking mechanism as it applies to the nervous system.
– The history of Neurogenic Yoga and Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE).
– Experiencing self induced therapeutic tremoring in their own bodies twice, using different yoga postures.
– The certification process for Neurogenic Yoga and TRE.
– Questions and comment session about their experience.


This workshop is open to the public. Since this shaking mechanism in the muscles is part of our natural behavior as humans, everyone can benefit. These self-induced therapeutic tremors increase the resiliency of the body because they cause deep relaxation that naturally reduces stress levels and muscle contraction. These vibrations can release emotions ranging from mild upset to severe anxiety whether it is caused by work stress, excessive worry, conflict in relationships, physical stresses, or traumas from accidents. Additionally, tremoring has been reported to reduce and eliminate pain, increases mobility, and aid healing of recent and past injuries.

Whether you are a parent/spouse who would like more patience with your family, a survivor of violence or an accident, a soldier suffering with PTSD, or simply someone who wants to become more resilient and healthier, you can benefit from Neurogenic Yoga™.

I practiced Neurogenic Yoga while studying in Tucson last year, and it was such a deep healing experience I knew I had to bring it to Iowa for YOU to experience first-hand! We have all experienced trauma at some level, don’t miss this opportunity to dig deep and let go.
