A deeply beneficial workshop for mind and body to help alleviate the physical and mental symptoms of menopause. 

This workshop is an introduction to practices that can alleviate the symptoms of menopause by bringing balance back to body and mind. There will be elements of Hatha and Yin Yoga which will take place by candlelight to encourage total relaxation and restoration. There will also be periods of guided relaxation and meditation to make this a holistic, balancing experience.

Hatha Yoga is a classical yoga practice. It encourages proper form in standing and seated postures to move the body and provide energetic release in muscles, organs and bodily systems. Yin yoga is a gentle yoga practice that stretches and loosens the joints and fascia (ligaments and tendons) supporting the joints as well as the muscles to increase flexibility and mobility. 

The workshop is suitable for all; from complete beginners upwards and will be fully guided throughout. There is no level of fitness or flexibility required to undertake this workshop as poses can be modified to suit individuals. We will move gently from one pose to another; the majority of this workshop will be seated (there will be some standing postures).

This workshop will introduce participants to meditation allowing individuals to surrender into the practice and find peace in mind and body.

The workshop will also involve relaxation techniques through breathing exercises so participants gain a full experience of the power and benefits of mindful movement practice to aid physical and mental health…all set in a relaxing candlelit environment.

Bring along a yoga mat, yoga blocks if you have them (not essential), a blanket and small pillow for use during relaxation.
