When we are threatened the body releases huge amounts of stress hormones to help us overcome the danger. That is the flight-fight response kicking in and we literally shake with fear. Neurobiologist Robert Sapolsky wrote a book called, Why Zebras Don’t Get Ulcers. The reason being that zebras and other animals know how to dissipate stress. They simply shake it off and get back to living in the moment. Sadly, human beings, gradually lose these skills of re-calibrating their nervous systems. From a young age, we are admonished to stop acting like cry-babies. Or we are threatened with dire consequences if we don't stop our tantrums and shut up. As a result, we learn to suppress our feelings.
Believe me, shaking is one of the easiest and quickest way to release stress. All the wild animals do it. We are going to have a 45 minutes Shaking class built up with several exercises. Once finished, we can sit down and have a 15 minutes to talk about our experience.
Please bring your mat and a water bottle if you prefer having it.
If you want to join the class, please let me know so that I can book the spot for you.
