Feedback from Jane & Julia's Events

"I thoroughly enjoyed this training. Jane and Julia ran a tight ship, so all content was covered. There were several opportunities to share with the other students, which bonded the group. The extra resources were exceptional, and all were available after the course, as were the tutors. All the students felt very supported and well informed. Thank you xx"

We invite you to join us to mark the winter solstice with a reflection on 2021 and looking forward to 2022.  We will dive deep into the energy of the wintery darkness to look back over the year and reflect from a personal as well as a professional perspective.

Within the spirit of the winter solstice, the longest night of our calender, we will set our vision on the light that is waiting for us around the corner -and look forward with intention to the year ahead. We will also have the opportunity to reframe the idea of "new year's resolutions" in the context of cyclical renewal, honouring the cycles of the year, the month, the week, the day and the breath.

Together we will use embodiment practices and meditation to look back on 2021.  This workshop will give us the opportunity to:

  • Reflect on the time from summer soltice to winter solstice through embodied yoga and mindfulness practices
  • Acknowledge our challenges
  • Enjoy our high points
  • Come to acceptance and grieve our losses

We will have the opportunity to:

  • Use meditation and embodied movement practices to look forward to 2022
  • Reflect on the different feeling of planning for a year and making small intentions based on the lunar calendar
  • Address our longings for the future from both a personal perspective and related to our intentions for our yoga practice & teaching

This workshop will give you a flavour of the forthcoming mentoring programme with Jane & Julia and is also an opportunity for all of us to gather as a community as this year comes to a close.  Do wear comfortable clothes and bring paper, pens and colouring pens for journaling.

YTF will donate £5 to The Eve Appeal for every booking.

Feedback from yoga teachers who've attended Jane & Julia's previous training:

"The course exceeded my expectations! It provided theory, different models of the perimenopause and beyond, movement and breath practices, poetry and different readings and articles related to Peri-menopause and Menopause . As participants we shared our ideas through the discussion forum, sharings and practices in the sessions which was also hugely valuable. Jane and Julia led the group with sensitivity and enthusiasm, allowing there to be space for our contributions. Thank you so much."

Rebecca Paterson, Attendee Perimenopause Training, Oct-Nov 2021

"A superbly well put together training course with the perfect balance of practice, theory and group conversation. Way and above exceeded my expectations and has offered me a radically different way to view my own experience of the perimenopause and as a result, a different lens to offer to those that I work with.  I really apprecaited being able to attend a weekly class, that was just a huge bonus that I found so nourishing and supportive. To receive the practice, to step out of the head of the student and to be nourished and cared for in that way, for me was profoundly transformative. It allowed the content to land in a way that no one has ever managed to date. Seeing my self care as being a seasonal process is life changing, I knew this of course, and had been taught it before, but somehow it did not land in a way that I felt able to embody it.

Julia Davis

Julia is passionate about sharing practices that support the rhythms of womanhood from menarch to post menopause, respecting the vast range of experience of people who experience the menstrual cycle.  She believes that a world in which all people are literate in the cyclical nature of women is a world in which the cycles of all life will be respected.  Julia is an educator in eco-menstruation, and yoga that honours the cycles.

Her work is influenced by the grandmothers of menstruation Alexandra Pope & Jane Bennett - trailblazers of menarche, menstruality and menopause!  She supports the powerful work of Uma Dinsmore Tuli's Yoni Shakti the Movement and will be forever grateful to her for writing THE book!  Julia is delighted to be part of a strong community of people who are changing the perimenopause story and she is grateful to the trans, non-binary community & men for widening our experience and understanding of the awesome rite of passage that is perimenopause!
