In this in-person workshop, Eric Peter will provide instruction on:
- Exercises that help calm your nervous system
- Exercises for promoting neutral observation
- Neurogenic tremor techniques
- Centering Prayer
You will learn an innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma. The exercises safely activate a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system. The exercises are intended to be used as a self-help method that is easily learned, has immediate effects and can be integrated into a simple daily routine to help restore a sense of inner peace and relaxation.
The workshop is being held at the Center for Contemplative Living in Denver, Colorado. You will need to bring the following with you to the class:
- Yoga mat *
- Water bottle
* Note that the exercises taught in this class can be done sitting in a chair if you prefer not to use a yoga mat.
