Nervous System Reset Yoga

Every Monday, 10:15am

$10 drop-in

The busyness of daily life can cause imbalances in your nervous system, making it difficult to decompress and experience a sense of calm. Everything can feel off and overwhelming. This leads to stress patterns building up in our bodies.

Did you know our nervous system is considered the deepest core of our being. It dictates how we feel in our bodies, the clarity of our thoughts, and the quality of our relationships. When it is in balance, we flow with the ups and downs of life. We are resilient.

Nervous System Reset is a yoga class designed to down regulate the nervous system through movement, tremoring, mindfulness and meditation.
This class aims to
-Relieve mental, emotional, and physical stress
-Increase vitality and experience a profound sense of freedom in your body and mind
-Promote clarity, focus, and better sleep
-Meet daily challenges with newfound peace, discernment, and power.

Class starts with 30 minutes of a gentle vinyasa flow followed by 15 minutes of tremoring, 10 minutes of sivasana and finishes off with a quiet seated mediation.

After this class your mind and body will be in a neutral state of calm. You will have more inner resource to handle life's challenges and daily stress. You will return home with practical, effective tools to incorporate these healing practices into your everyday life.

Weekly drop-in class
Offered every Monday at 10:15am-11:30am

Fill Your Cup: A Weekend for Educators


You've heard the phrase: you can't give from an empty cup?

In this workshop, you'll learn the neuroscience of resiliency and experience practical tools you can use right away to manage stress and nurture your inner resiliency.

Educators, therapists, medical professionals, massage therapists - anyone in a profession that requires you to be balanced mentally and emotionally to care for others. To promote an optimal environment for learning, sharing, and self-nurturing, registration is limited to 15 participants.

You'll learn the neuroscience behind stress and resiliency. From this understanding of how your nervous system reacts to stressors, you'll have the opportunity to practice strategies for balancing this system for optimal wellness. No previous experience or training is required to attend, although an interest in neuroscience and somatic (or body) oriented practices for resiliency will likely equal more satisfaction in the training.

Friday, 7-9 p | introductory activities
Saturday, 9a-5 p | AM/neuroscience with Jenifer, PM/tools & processing with Shanti
Sunday, 9a-4 p | AM/neuroscience & tools with Jenifer, PM/tools & processing with Shanti

We're in sunny Bend Oregon for this weekend of learning and nurturing. Our specific location is at The Hive, 205 NW Franklin Ave. Not local? We're available to help connect you with reliable, inexpensive places to stay so you can focus on enjoying your trip.

Your guides for this weekend are Jenifer Trivelli, MS RYT and Shanti O'Connor, MS RYT. Jenifer & Shanti obtained master's degrees in Counseling together a decade ago, and have each pursued individual (though somewhat parallel) post-graduate training in yoga, somatic theories of healing, trauma resolution and mental/emotional resiliency. They also have experience working with youth, families, and educators - a combination of three decades. You'll glean the best of what they have to offer from their extensive experience and training in the subject of nurturing resiliency.

Tension/Trauma Release Exercises (TRE)

60 MINUTES $15 

Tension/Trauma Release exercises are a set of guided exercises developed by Dr. David Berceli. These exercises are a gentle and effective way to release deeply held tension that has accumulated in the body due to everyday life demands, prolonged or immediate stress, or traumatic life experiences.

Using a series of gentle exercises, TRE activates a muscular tremor reflex which is the body’s natural way of re-establishing balance by discharging energy stored in the nervous system. It is a body-based release originating from the brain stem, therefore there is little or no emotional or cognitive process activated or stirred by this practice. TRE will not trigger any traumatic memories of feelings. It is safe practice for all body types and can be modified if needed.  Sessions are between 1 and 1.5 hours.  For more information on TRE, visit

A Tension/Trauma Release Exercise (TRE) group session is $10 cash or $15 credit/debit per participant.

Donation for those who have already taken a TRE class.

Vibration Healing

1.5 hours  $15 

This is a unique blend of exercises, meditation, breath work and energy work to create a healing vibration current in the body. These exercises down regulate the nervous system so the body can relax and rejuvenate.

The first part will be dedicated to soothing, calming and resetting the nervous system through a guided meditation, breathwork and tremoring. No experience needed to learn these exercises. It's a safe and gentle exercise for all bodies.

Once our body is in a natural state of calm we will use crystals, oils, singing bowls, hands on energy healing, and shamanic drumming or hemi-sync music will be used during our time together to help guide and clear the energetic field.

Time permitting, we will process and talk about what came up during our time together.
Please bring a yoga mat to lay on and any pillow you think you may need to support your body laying on the floor.
