Event description


Hacking Your Nervous System™

In this introductory workshop, you will learn powerful stress resilience skills (like breath and mind-body techniques) that can be used to regulate your stress response. We will practice a variety of mindfulness and body position techniques that are scientifically proven to reduce stress.

The program is especially beneficial to those who work in nerve-wracking environments, have experienced traumatic events, or suffer from constant worry. We've trained instructors in the Department of State and individuals from a variety of military and intelligence agencies. These techniques are equally useful for executives who are burning the candle at both ends, or school teachers who are dealing with the pressures of the modern classroom.

What we’ll cover:

  • Intro to the Autonomic Nervous System: Understand the science of fight-flight, anxiety, and how to lower tension

  • Breathing techniques used to release worry and regulate the autonomic nervous system

  • Body poses to release tension, including a method of shaking or tremoring out of stress

  • Mindfulness practices that help to increase your awareness and regulation of thought patterns

My training clients report:

  • Better Sleep

  • Less Low Back Pain

  • Reduced Anxiety

  • Less Irritability

  • Higher Energy Levels

  • Increased Productivity


"I definitely feel the most relaxed that I've felt in weeks -- Thank you!" -JMS, war veteran

"I was totally skeptical at the start of the class, but once the tremoring started to happen I was just amazed! Every different position I moved into altered how it felt and where I felt it. Totally worth it!" -AAM, war veteran

“I felt more relaxed very quickly and I definitely felt looser. For some reason, I feel more confident.” -MPS, war veteran

“I haven’t felt this relaxed in over ten years.” –PC, retiree
