Please don’t miss this workshop if you are a woman coming into (peri) or coming out of (post) menopause. Symptoms can – and changes do – start in early 40s and can continue for a decade or more.
It’s empowering to have knowledge when we feel so out of control – and even out of our bodies.
We will explore a variety of poses – some active, many gentle/restorative, to help ease the symptoms of this transition with knowledge, acceptance and grace. Our time together will reveal how yoga can be – should be – adjusted for this transitional phase.
Let me help bring you some sense of empowerment – and balance. I’ve learned from great teachers, including Senior Iyengar teacher Bobby Clennell and Patricia Walden who have studied directly with both BKS Iyengar and, particularly, Geeta Iyengar focusing on deep therapeutics for women’s health. This is also REALLY informed by my own journey — anecdotes fused with research and science — through peri, meno and post-menopause transitions.
