Trauma Release Exercises (TRE) – 3 Part Workshop Series @ The Wellbeing Centre

Trauma Release Exercises (TRE) - 3 Part Workshop Series @ The Wellbeing Centre

Date: Jan 20 / Feb 17 / Mar 17 

Time: 1.00 – 3.00pm / OR 4 – 6pm 

Open to all

This course of three experiential workshops is designed to introduce you to the practice of TRE and teach the essential skill of self-regulation in preparation for taking up TRE at home on your own. You will be taken through the main principles of how TRE works and guided in how to use it safely as a valuable and effective self-help tool.

TRE is a mindful body practice which dynamically releases stress, tension and trauma stored in our bodies from both recent and more historic life experiences. By using a set of simple exercises we can trigger therapeutic tremors in the body, ‘recalibrating’ our central nervous system and interrupting the release of stress hormones. TRE restores a sense of calm, re-balances vital body systems and builds resilience physically and psychologically.

One on one consultation sessions also available in the mornings of the workshops.

Standing Qigong: Theory and practice with Cindy Engel @ Wellbeing Centre
Jan 28 @ 9:30 am – 1:30 pm
Standing Qigong: Theory and practice with Cindy Engel @ Wellbeing Centre

Qigong, as a generic practice, includes different styles of standing meditation. Why are they different? What are they for? What are they supposed to do? This session will look at the physical alignments, the applications of Ting and the effects we can expect from three different ‘types’ of standing practice. We will experience why different standing postures stimulate, activate and initiate different processes

Suitable for all as we will each control the length of time we stand in each practice session. 

Please call 01603 632555 or email Dinah for further info or to book. Cindy Engel is a highly experienced Qigong Teacher, to find out more about her visit www.wildhealth.co.uk

I found Qigong or it found me, I’m not sure. However, it is the start of a wonderful(and at times annoying and sickening) journey. Cindy is the perfect guide along this path. She blends the East and West, the science and the esoteric perfectly. An added bonus is that she is just the right kind of bonkers. A brilliant teacher.” Ben Grief (Science teacher, 2015)

​Wu Daoyin: Guiding and leading the Qi – with Cindy Engel @ Wellbeing Centre
Feb 25 @ 9:30 am – 1:30 pm
​Wu Daoyin: Guiding and leading the Qi - with Cindy Engel @ Wellbeing Centre

Sometimes information in the body from past events continues to hold us back and needs to go. Sometimes physical damage to the body is holding back the smooth operation of our movements or our energy flow. Sometimes stagnation needs to be shifted with a bit of assertiveness and nothing else will do. The ‘Daoyins’ can be used to shift stagnation, clear, open and lengthen the body for improved function. This could be a sweaty, slightly challenging morning, which – after exhausting you – will leave you feeling lighter, brighter, and happier. Bring a towel!

Suitable for all as we will each control how much we do during each practice session
