TRE is a series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma.

It safely activates a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system. When this muscular shaking/vibrating mechanism is activated in a safe and controlled environment, the body is encouraged to return back to a state of balance.

TRE is designed to be a self-help tool that once learned, can be used as needed, throughout one’s life, thereby continuously supporting and promoting personal health and wholeness.

Since this shaking mechanism in the muscles is part of our natural behaviour as humans, everyone can benefit. TRE can be used as an effective tool for releasing chronic traumatic stress, physical tension, and the everyday stress, tension, and anxiety that comes from the daily pressures of life. Additionally, it has been reported to reduce pain, increase mobility, and aid healing of past injuries.

A body based (somatic) process which can allow a person to discharge trauma and tension from the body without needing to verbally describe or talk about a traumatic experience, TRE helps us move towards thriving during times of safety as well – it not only heals our past but re-vitalises our futures.

Reported Benefits Include:

  • Increased mobility and flexibility
  • Release of muscular tension from exercise and sport
  • Relief from chronic medical conditions
  • Improved sleep quality
  • Less anxiety and worry
  • Increased emotional resilience
  • Reduced symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Response (PTSR)
  • Reduced pain
  • Greater sense of calm and inner peace

“This workshop is a must for anyone looking to reconnect with themselves.
This unique experience has enabled me to address & heal parts of myself through finding my own voice to face a busy & demanding world. It was intense, lively, emotional, fun and grounding. The work you put in, is what you take away with you for life. I am grateful for both the experience & my new found energy & focus” – Leigh Steven-Jennings, Cape Town

“After two extremely intense days of Soul Voice® , I have emerged feeling spring cleaned, alive, activated, fresh, new and a hell of a lot lighter! I have experienced and studied many types of therapies and am blown away by the simplicity; how powerful is the use of my own voice in different ways…for clearing, for healing, for expressing, for celebrating…always available to me, costs me nothing and can offer soooo, soooo much! WOW! I am addicted! “
– Swaha Linda, Bali

“I am amazed with the depth of this technique. The two day Soul Voice® workshop helped me to release an absurd amount of energy that was trapped inside me for a long time, generating great frustration. To use my own voice to awaken my inner power was one of the most transformative experiences I ever had” – Claudia Arakasi, Australia

EFT (Tapping) Intro by Gary Craig, EFT Founder



Contact Improvisation classes – Wednesdays at 7.15pm



Contact Improvisation (CI) is a dance technique in which points of physical contact provide the starting point for movement improvisation and exploration.

Its an experimental dance form allowing creativity to flow.

Working with a few basic principles as a guide: giving and receiving weight – understanding the rolling point of contact – working with the laws of physics of momentum – gravity, space, inertia and friction – Contact Improvisation brings you totally present and in honour of every moment, learning to listen with the body.

In the class experience you will learn:

  • the natural body patterns of movement
  • how to spiral in and out of contact – sharing and giving weight
  • to allow play and fun back into your movement

*Regular studio class rates apply

The classes will be taught by Lulu Erasmus (a certified ecstatic awaking dance teacher and performance artist) who is passionate about Contact dance. For her movement is a path to enlightenment … “we learn a lot through free movement in the body as we store a lot of memories and emotions in the body and these can be healed and transformed through movement.”  

Lulu has hosted and guided dance journeys  around the world helping people to align themselves with their greater potential of living in joy love and success.
