Feedback from the previous course:

“Jo’s 8 week mindfulness course was a real awakening for me.  I loved every minute of our two hour weekly sessions despite my initial doubt that mindfulness and meditation would benefit me as much as it has. Our ‘homework’ was to do to a daily practice which was challenging at first, but when I wholly committed I was blown away to how it made me feel.  I always felt calmer after whichever practice I chose to follow, and more positive about myself and life in general . Although finding the time to do the daily mindfulness was sometimes difficult , without doubt it was 100% worth the effort and really important to keep it up regularly.

‘Jo’s gentle empathy and creative guidance kept me on track and I am still practicing most days and feel lighter and definitely happier in my life.’    

I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is curious to try out mindfulness.”

“Thank you for the opportunity to connect with the practice of mindfulness. Each time I reconnect, my ability to be present in the moment becomes a little stronger. I love that you always put your heart and soul into everything you do, it conveys such love and respect for those who you work with.”

Neurogenic Yoga Workshop

Neurogenic Yoga Workshop

Gentle Yoga With TRE

Deeply Nourishing Stress Release followed by Yoga Nidra

with Jo Hamilton

Sunday 10th December  2023

From 14.00 – 17.00 pm

Cost £35.00

Afterward warm drink and cake.

At Namaste Barn Yoga & Meditation Studio

Ideford, Chudleigh, Devon, TQ13 0BH ( find us on Google Maps)

Accessible to all levels Neurogenic Yoga™ is a revolutionary technique in trauma healing and stress reduction.

This 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®). 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,whether emotional or physical, in order to restore the body to wholeness.

Jo will lead you through a gentle practice, awakening your instinctive tremor release which is often described as a pleasurable, comforting, some say meditative experience. Jo will then complete the session guiding you to melt into a relaxing Yoga Nidra practice.
