“If you can breathe you can do yoga.” Krishnamacharya
sTREss Away YOGA is a unique mixture of Yoga Classes and Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE®). The classes are suitable and tailored for absolute beginners or the more experienced yoga student.
YOGA brings us into the present moment through concentrated movement and breath. A combination of focused breath and yoga postures, or asanas, will help you create a mind-body connection.
sTREss AWAY (TRE) is an organic process which evokes a shake or tremor in the body, releasing stress, tension, and trauma. No matter how derived or how longstanding the issues, TRE harmonises the body and mind back to a relaxed and balanced state.
MEDITATION is the perfect way to integrate the process and may further enhance the relaxed state you have achieved.
All you need is your yoga mat, your water bottle, and a small cushion.

STRETCH AND SHAKE with TRE& YOGA
Our mission is to help people from all walks of life Be in the Present Moment
Why TRE& YOGA?
Yoga, TRE and meditation are the perfect combinations of resources to bring us into the present moment through concentrated movement and breath. When we are PRESENT we let go of stress, calm the mind, take deeper, more healthy breaths and the body and the mind come back to a harmonious state. From this state of presence, we more easily manifest positive opportunity. We are better able to deal with stress because we have greater resilience. relationships improve because the most important relationship is enhanced – the relationship with ourselves.
We have developed a blend (or fusion) of YOGA, TRE and deep relaxation meditation to assist integration and relaxation. Look out for workshops throughout the year.

The word Vinyasa can be translated as “arranging something in a special way,” like yoga poses for example. In Vinyasa yoga classes, students coordinate movement with breath to flow from one pose to the next. Vinyasa can alternatively be translated as breath synchronised movement. Vinyasa movements are smoothly flowing and almost dance-like which is why it is sometimes referred to as Flow Yoga.
Pattabhi Jois developed this form of yoga and it was made popular in the west by Jean Baptiste. The Baptiste Institute is an organisation changing lives by bringing yoga to the world as a leadership skill.
Here are some of the reported benefits of maintaining a regular yoga practice:
- Cardiovascular efficiency increases
- Respiratory efficiency increases
- Musculoskeletal flexibility and joint range of motion increase
- Strength and resilience increase
- Energy levels and well-being increases
- Immunity increases
- Weight normalises
- Mood and concentration levels improve
- Self-acceptance and self-actualization may increase.
Restorative Yoga is the centring of your breath and body – aligning the physical and mental by practising stillness or gentle movement for extended periods of time. It’s about slowing down and opening the body through passive stretching. If you participate in a restorative class, you may hardly move at all, doing just a few postures in the course of an hour. During these long holds, your muscles relax deeply. It’s a completely different feeling from other types of yoga classes since props are used to support your body instead of your muscles. Restorative classes are very mellow, making them a good complement to more active practices and an excellent antidote to stress.
Yoga Nidra or ‘yoga sleep’ is a sleep-like state, which can be experienced during meditation. Yoga Nidra can also be described as lucid sleeping and is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while maintaining full consciousness. The mind remains alert and aware while the body sleeps. Jacky normally includes Yoga Nidra as part of the relaxation at the conclusion of a workshop. Duration is around 30 minutes and is usually a gentle voice guided meditation.
