Stress management

A growing part of my work consists of stress management and trauma prevention. A majority of the groups and teams that I work with live and work in conflict areas or perform in international settings under high pressure. The importance of physical and mental fitness is all too often underestimated. My background as a Critical Alignment Yoga teacher and certified TRE® Provider blends in naturally in my regular work as trainer and facilitator.

Team challenges
I offer practical team trainings focussed on stress management in order to help teams to function on a better level. Usually this addresses internal team challenges at the same time. The focus is on using restorative yoga exercises and mindfulness combined with theoretical background on stress to increase the awareness of teams on the impact of acute and chronic stress on their bodies.

Trauma prevention with TRE®
For hands-on trauma prevention and reducing the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), I work with Trauma or Tension Releasing Exercises (TRE®). Working with TRE® as self-help method is very practical.

How does TRE® work?
If your body experiences a threat, it reacts with a fight or flight response. If that doesn’t work anymore, the body freezes like a computer crash. Like mammals, we are made to deal with stress and traumatic events. We have only forgotten how.

In sports or yoga, muscles release their tension superficially, TRE® works more profound in the body. The method enables you to release tension on a deep level, and to learn to regulate the release process yourself. After 3-5 sessions people are usually equipped and empowered with enough tools to apply TRE® back home safely.

I am a certified TRE® Provider. You can find me on the international website of TRE®.
