Please note (as a precautionary measure only), pregnant women are not advised to perform the exercises but are suggested to attend in order to observe others and learn TRE so they can be used as soon as possible after birth.

Participants are required to bring a water bottle, wear loose comfortable clothing and bring a thick yoga mat and blankets to all workshops to comfortably lie on a wooden floor for up to 50 minutes. Morning and afternoon tea will be provided with BYO lunch or cafes/shops available nearby.

If you are interested in hosting a 3 hour workshop for your group, clients or organisation, please contact Leilani here

Through your warmth, friendliness and openness, and the clarity and professionalism of your facilitation, you created a very safe environment in which we could allow ourselves to fully experience the exercises and tremors.  Afterwards, I felt calm, relaxed, centred, grounded and my mind was still and peaceful (something that happens rarely!)”
