Embracing the Change
October date to be confirmed
10 am to 4pm
Half of the world's popluation will make the transition through menopause, a transition that is every bit as life changing as puberty.
Culturally, we have a lot of time and patience for the changes and surprises that puberty brings, but often much less sympathy for those that occur during menopause, which can be equally, if not dramatically more, challenging.

Research has shown that a slow, attentive yoga practice which incorporates movement, breathwork and meditation can ease and alleviate many of the most common symptoms of menopause.
Join me for a full day workshop to learn techniques to ease your journey through this transformative time.
The day will include:
* 3 practical, tailored yoga sessions to support some of the common menopausal symptoms with specific asana, breathing techniques and restorative poses for each symptom.
* "What's happening to me?" A talk to discuss the basic facts of menopause and what is happening to your body and brain.
* A questionnaire to determine your individual Ayurvedic constitution, or dosha, which will help you understand your menopausal experience more clearly and offer supportive suggestions.
* Teas, coffee and a light lunch
The workshop is limited to 6 women.
