Intrinsic Tantra: Aligning with Sacred Tremor

Reawaken the body’s deep instinctual intelligence with practices designed to set you free from pain and foster freedom of movement and ease. Enliven and nurture your body with techniques that unlock long held tension patterns and rediscover your aliveness through self induced tremoring.

What to expect from this workshop:
-Intrinsic movement that will empower you to tune into the subtle longings of the body.
-Tantric practices designed to awaken the root and sacral chakras, psoas muscle, and “gut” instinct to reignite authentic movement for releasing blockages.
-Awaken the body’s innate ability to heal through gentle self-induced tremoring via Neurogenic Yoga™.
-Sacred sounding and music by songstress Sita Rose.

Your Guide: Jennica Mills, MSW, E-RYT

Jennica's eclectic background in the healing field gives way to a unique perspective of how we can rediscover our balance by integrating the mind, body, and spirit. She has a private practice in San Diego where she facilitates somatic tension and trauma release, sexual wellness coaching and sacred sexuality through ancient Tantric practices and modern day sexology.

Your Songstress: Sita Rose, MT-BC, RYT

Sita Rose is a spirit seeker, space holder, and music maker. Based in San Diego, CA, she is an expressive performer skilled at crafting melodic medicine derived from the heart. She draws from her background as a board certified music therapist, devotional singer, and reiki & yoga practitioner to elevate consciousness and promote peace.

FAQs

Q: What is Intrinsic Tantra?
A: Intrinsic Tantra integrates ancient tantric practices, body-informed movement, breath techniques, modern day sexology, meditation, and tension release for full-on intimacy with life itself. These practices foster authentic connection with self and others by expanding our capacity for experiencing and expressing our unique beingness. This is so much more than what we think of when we hear the words, "sex" and "sexuality". This is a rediscover of who we are in the context of an ecstatic universe.

Intrinsic Tantra teachings us to be in relationship with our dynamic evolution and to embody our true nature.

Q: What is Neurogenic Yoga?
A: Neurogenic Yoga is a simple, gentle and profound practice that facilities the lengthening and relaxation of the psoas muscle and the release of physical and emotional stress and tension. During a Neurogenic Yoga practice, we safely self induce therapeutic vibration using gentle movement and breath. Often vibration begins in the legs and may spread throughout the entire body. This method is based on Dr. David Berceli’s technique of Trauma Releasing Exercises® (TRE®).

This workshop will be light on yoga postures, and will mainly use breath and gentle movement to induce the natural shaking mechanism.

Q: What can I bring into the event?
A: Please bring a blanket and a pillow or zafu to sit comfortably on the floor. Also, you are welcome to bring something special to add to our altar. This is optional and you will get the item back!

Q: How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
A: Please contact Jennica Mills with any questions phone/text (480) 223-8686 or by email to jennica@neurogenicyoga.com

In Her Wisdom

In Her Wisdom

Sacred Circle for All Women.

There lies within our hearts the longing to sit with our sisters, recalibrate and be in our full expression. It is time to gather with one another for authentic sharing, movement, and nurturing. Join us for an afternoon designed to realign with our innate wisdom.

For centuries women have gathered together to heal, celebrate, grieve, and dream. Yet, our modern-day society leaves little time for listening to our deep calling to commune with one another. This is an opportunity to be fully you, to melt into yourself in the safety of shared sisterhood.

Additionally, many of you will have participated in the Women's March downtown earlier in the day as a way to stand in solidarity with the Women's March in DC. We intentionally chose this day and time for our circling to provide a space for you to land and connect. 

Nurturing movement and ritual led by Jennica Mills, accompanied by the sweet sounds of musician, Sita Rose.

REGISTRATION is necessary so that we can prepare for you! InHerWisdom.eventbrite.com

This is a DONATION based event! 

All Women Welcome
