Women’s Wellness Workshop
Perimenopause & Beyond
Sunday 18th August – 1.00pm – 4.30pm
During the years leading up to menopause it is not uncommon for women to experience hormonal fluctuations that can leave them feeling a little overwhelmed, both physically and emotionally.
It has become the norm for women to experience discomfort in a variety of forms – irregular periods, hot flushes, fatigue, mood swings, anxiety, depression to name but a few. On top of this, women are also at increased risk of osteopenia and osteoporosis.
While often not thought of as a time of celebration in the west, traditional cultures consider this an exciting period of transition, welcoming and celebrating the beginning of a period of wisdom and grace. If we can enter this period with preparation and perspective it is possible to dramatically reduce both physical and emotional symptoms and move forward with strength, vitality and serenity.
During this workshop we will look at promoting wellbeing throughout perimenopause and beyond, through the lens of yoga and Ayurveda – both stabilising forces that can help us manage our transition with ease and grace.
You will learn:
- How to approach your asana practice during this transition period.
- Asanas that promote strength & balance.
- Breathing exercises to help reduce symptoms and bring calm & clarity to the mind.
- Meditation & mindfulness practices to help ease the transition.
- Simple lifestyle advice from Ayurveda, including herbal support.
This workshop will include both discussion and practice, with plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion of specific issues related to the topic.
Suitable for absolute beginners and experienced practitioners alike, this workshop will also be useful for yoga teachers wanting to expand their knowledge in the area of women’s health in order to best assist their students
