We Love Law Students Week

Dec 1, 6-7.30pm – Join us to release stress from your body with Tension Release Exercises

  • Tension Release Exercises (TRE®) are a simple, yet powerfully effective way to release stress, in a series of 7 simple exercises that evoke tremors (vibration, shaking) which are a safe and healthy way to discharge stress and calm the nervous system. The exercises can be modified for any body type or disability. This workshop is experiential, so make sure you have a yoga mat or blanket to lie on.
  • Facilitated by Desmond Williams a Certified TRE Provider and Yoga teacher who specializes in stress management strategies.
  • "STUDENT" for a 25% discount: “I have created a discount code for students for online sessions.”
  • "BIPOC" for 50% discount: “I have also spent the last few months working almost exclusively with the black and first nations community, so for students who identify as BIPOC there is a discount code for online sessions because things have been extra heavy since the lockdown in march.”
