Introduction to Mentastics
Trager Mentastics is a profoundly simple approach to body movement that can end stress-induced tension and replace aches, pains and stiffness with pleasurable sensations. The movements are easy to do, very gentle, and work for people of all ages and abilities, from the athlete to the functionally impaired. They offer a way to agelessness — a graceful, free and energetic state. They can dramatically impact (and prevent) a wide range of ailments, from lower back pain to paralysis. Derived from the words “mental gymnastics,” Mentastics are the self-care portion of the Trager Approach. Re-connect to that feeling of lightness, of peace, of bliss, any time, any where. No special talent, skill or gear is required. Condition your body/mind away from old dysfunctional patterns. With use, Mentastics will help anyone feel balanced, grounded, and able to cope with stress. Learn to live in your body in a softer, lighter way. Mentastics is a meditation in motion!

The 6 hour workshop: 5 credits CMTBC
Reminiscent of Yoga, the movements depend less on physical exertion then on mental direction and are easy to master, even for those with physical impairment.
Trager Mentastics gives…an exceptional feel for the man and his spirit, while teaching about awareness to be gained through simple movement of our body.
Free, graceful movement for people of all ages… The instructions are sound and lucid.
The advantage of Trager Mentastics is that the athlete can stay more limber and loose, thus freer of muscle damage.

Praise for Pathway to Presence Combo

Praise for Pathway to Presence CD
“Audrey, I love your CD. Almost always the voice carrying a guided meditation is "off" in some way that leaves me feeling irritated. Not yours. I love the clean authenticity of your delivery, congruence of content and form. What a relief to be able to wholeheartedly recommend it with no caveat or qualm!“
Susan Holper , Senior Trager Practitioner, Tutor.
Praise for Audrey’s Workshops
“My two day experience in Audrey Mairi’s workshop resulted in a definite shift in my sense of alignment within my body and in relationship with the earth. Not only do I feel more grounded but also noticed that most of my aches and pains have disappeared. Her teachings are clear, the exercises and concepts profoundly simple and mightily effective. I had fun learning and therefore can remember each segment easily and with joy. I highly recommend her workshops, her book, her CD and deeply value her private sessions.“
