The movement reeducation and mind/body integration workshop | Trager®

 Milton Trager’s work will benefit anyone wishing to lead a healthier and more dynamic life

/ Deepak Chopra /


Trager® approach is the movement reeducation and mind/body integration.

Utilizing gentle, non-intrusive, natural movements, The Trager Approach helps release deep-seated physical and mental patterns and facilitates deep relaxation, increased physical mobility, and mental clarity. These patterns may have developed in response to accidents, illnesses, or any kind of physical or emotional trauma, including the stress of everyday life.


There are two aspects of The Trager Approach; one in which a person is passive and receives the treatment and the other in which you are active – doing it yourself with the instructions. The passive aspect is usually referred to the tablework, and the active aspect is called Mentastics®.


This workshop will be based on Mentastics- the active part of the Trager Approach.

We’ll be working individually, in duos and little groups; it includes bodyworks, e.g., touching the other person


This practice offers easiness, freedom and the principle- ‘I don’t have to try’

by letting be what already is there and just recognizing it.

It offers the ways of experiencing and learning relaxation, release and energizing as well as

finding the ways of balancing and study by researching them.

How to sense, how to listen to myself, my emotions and how to express –

    – how to make it easier –

recognizing of how I feel, what I wish, what is going on and how to express.

It will be about finding, recognizing and having connection to my own possibilities, my own movements

and giving the possibilities to widen the movement vocabulary
