Friends Who Are Going
Event description


Discover TRE (Tension Release Exercises) –
the natural way for people with busy lives to release tension, relax more and improve health and well-being.

Do you find yourself rushing through your week, crashing at the end of the day, not sleeping enough only to get up and start all over again?

Let’s face it – life can be demanding! Work, relationships, kids, housework, friends, sports, study and other commitments all demand time and energy. Your body takes the hit, tension and stress hormones build up and aches and pains, fatigue and irritability develop over time.

Sound familiar?

Tension release exercises can help you to:

  • Release deep tension in your muscles
  • Recover from stress more rapidly
  • Extend your flexibility and ease of movement
  • Improve your energy and endurance
  • Calm your nervous system

These simple exercises are suitable for all ages and adaptable for all levels of physical ability. They evoke a natural muscle tremor (shaking) response in your body that reduces stress and restores well-being. All mammals use this natural protective response to let go of the pent up tension that is stored in the body after challenging events. The tremors originate in the subconscious part of your brain but you’re always in control of the process.

Shake it Off is a 3-shake series on the following dates:

Sunday 1 October 2017: 3pm - 4:30pm
Sunday 8 October 2017: 3pm - 4:30pm
Sunday 15 October 2017: 3pm - 4:30pm

Ticket Options

Although we strongly recommend that you attend all 3 shakes so you have a deep and comprehensive experience of the TRE process, tickets can be bought for the series as a whole or the individual events. Tickets for each event cost $30 but if you buy a ticket for the whole series, you'll receive a 10% discount off the total price.

Tickets will also be on sale on the door (cash sales only). Classes cost $40 on the day - it's much cheaper to book in advance so we recommend you reserve your place now!

Special Offer - Bring a friend for half price.

If you and your friend register together, you'll only pay $45 for both of you to attend a shake or $120 for both of you to attend the 3-shake series. This is a 50% discount off the second ticket price!

TRE is a safe and effective stress release technique for most people. There are, however, some simple safeguards we need to put in place to protect your well-being. If you have experienced any of the following in the last six months please contact an organiser to discuss your situation:

  • Significant injury or surgery
  • Brain implant or traumatic brain injury
  • Mental health diagnosis
  • Current pregnancy

Registration will be taken as agreement that you do not meet any of the above criteria. Your confirmation email will include a link to an intake form – please complete this as soon as possible so the organisers can make sure all attendees will learn TRE in a safe and comfortable environment.

The TRE process should not be used as a substitute for trauma recovery procedures of a medical or psychological nature. Individuals who have physical or psychological/psychiatric conditions that require strict regulation, individuals with fragile psychological defences, a complex history of trauma or restricting physical or medical limitations should consult the organiser prior to signing up for Shake it Off.
