In this workshop for women we will explore various cultural, physical and emotional beliefs around transitions in the menstrual cycle. For this experience, we will focus on the moon cycle that brings women through a variety of energetic wisdom cycles that are separate from the menstrual cycle. Through visualization and meditation, we will learn a specific technique to tune into this energetic moon cycle and to use this cycle to support our creativity, decision making and intuitive trust. Next, we will explore yoga poses, energy practices and aromatherapy that supports hormone balance, cardiovascular and reproductive organ health and sexual energy through pre-menopause and menopause. Although this session will be about the cessation of menstruation, the techniques and yoga tools provided will be useful to women in all phases of menstrual cycle and experience. Participants will explore the anatomy of menstruation and the cessation of menstruation from the perspective of embodied anatomy. This awareness and knowledge is empowering for women of all ages and is especially helpful to yoga instructors, physical therapists and massage therapists who wish to use an alternative understanding of menstruation in order to support the inner healing wisdom of their female clients and students. Finally, participants will be introduced to a variety of meditation techniques and gentle movements that can be used to improve the mind-body connection. This enhanced connection decreases risk of stroke and other cardiac events, enhances gray matter and improves emotional regulation by the amygdala.
