Stress, Trauma, Neuroscience and the Alexander Technique
Have you heard of Down-Regulation, Titration, or Co-Regulation?
In the third in my series of conversations with trauma awareness activist, Shay Seaborne, you will find out what they are, and why they are important for anyone dealing with stress or trauma.
It’s been fascinating to learn how the neuroscience of stress and trauma connects with Alexander Technique practices and skills. Over the last few years Shay has learned a lot from her interest in neuroscience about the neurobiology of stress and trauma. In particular, we discuss these three important concepts that support recovery and healing – down-regulation, titration and co-regulation – and the ways Alexander Technique and BodyIntelligence have helped her implement these three important interventions.

I’ve loved learning more about the neuroscience from Shay. In class she will frequently and excitedly exclaim how an Alexander Technique principle we’re exploring, or a BodyIntelligence practice we are doing, is backed by neuroscience. This conversation is bringing some of that information – and excitement if you’re a “nerd” for this stuff too – to you.
