More women than any time in history are now approaching or are in the midst of the menopausal years.   Conventional medical wisdom often treats menopause as a disease. The Eastern traditions view menopause as a time of greater wisdom and deeper insight—a natural life transition to be celebrated and embraced. Yoga can be a wonderful system to help manage the symptoms of menopause. Because of the hormonal fluctuations during menopause, women can feel out of balance and truly victims of their changing bodies. 

A regular yoga practice can help with specific symptoms of menopause and our attitude towards it. Yoga postures level out the physiological instability by relaxing and gently stretching every muscle in the body, promoting better blood circulation.   Every asana has a multitude of effects on all the systems of the body.  Pranayama and meditation help facilitate a spiritual alignment inspiring women to accept and nourish this change of life.  Yoga’s approach to health during menopause and beyond is based on the premise that the body should be allowed to function as efficiently, effectively and naturally as possible.

This workshop includes:
  • Menopausal effects on the physical, energetic and psycho-emotional
    bodies (Koshas)
  • Ayurvedic Perspective of Menopause
  • Mudras to balance the Endocrine System; Cooling Pranayama for hot flashes
  • Gentle Yoga practice to help with hot flashes, mood swings and bone strengthening.
