Understanding Hormones for Yoga Teachers & Therapists
Date: Sun 13 June 2021
Time: 0930-1230 GMT+1 (UK Time)
Women are a function of our hormones and being a hormonal woman should neither be seen as a joke or a dirty word.
Understanding our hormones is the key to understanding how we show up every day.
Take a deep dive into how our hormones work, how they impact us and change throughout our lives and how we can use yoga practice to create hormonal balance. We will discuss why hormonal balance is so crucial to our health and wellbeing, and the implications of hormonal imbalance.
As yoga teachers we can find ourselves supporting women who are facing:
- Fertility issues (specific yoga practice for supporting women during fertility treatment)
- PCOS (creating hormonal balance, reducing stress, encourage blood flow)
- Endometriosis (supporting women with this very debilitating condition)
- Menopause Symptoms (specific poses to help treat specific symptoms)
- PMS and menstrual cycle issues as teens
This workshop will look at women’s hormones from puberty to menopause. It will then look at how hormonal changes affect how we support women when they show up on the mat.
Rather than adapting poses for hormonal changes why not create classes that directly address the hormonal needs of each woman. This workshop will give you tools to do just that!
