Yoga for Menopause Support: Responding to the Diversity of Experiences
This experiential day long workshop is open to all women and yoga teachers, yoga therapists and health care practitioners who are seeking to support positive perspectives on experiences of menopause in women’s lives; either for themselves personally, or for their students and clients.
The day counts as continuing professional development (CPD) for teachers who have completed prior trainings with Uma, and can also count towards CPD points for general yoga teachers and therapists, depending upon the requirements of their professional associations. Health care practitioners, psychotherapists, and coaches with an interest in yoga and menopause are also welcome to attend, provided they have a living interest in and practice of yoga.
The intention of this day is to provide practical experience and good information, to answer questions and provide nourishing practice. Uma will be sharing yoga practices including total yoga nidra, breath (pranayama), rhythmic and restorative yoga postures (asana), gestures (mudra), and heart-based meditations (yoga nidra) that promote healthy menopause. Supportive sequences of integrated and restorative yoga postures will be taught, and there will be plenty of time for discussion. An overview of common menopausal challenges and opportunities will be discussed in relation to appropriate yogic responses. By the end of the day, participants will have an understanding of the key practical and theoretical yoga responses that are helpful to support the wide variety of experiences of menopause.
There will be plenty of opportunity for questions and discussions. The programme is designed to be open to responsive, intuitive attunements and adjustments to meet the specific needs of those attending. Diane Danzebrink from Menopause Support will be on hand to answer questions.
