Yoga For Healthy Menstruation with Monique Blackwell | Postponed
This event has been postponed. Updated event date and time will be communicated shortly. Please check back again soon.
Yoga For Healthy Menstruation Workshop will enable you to understand your menstrual cycle more fully, in terms of how the cycle can affect your day to day energy, mood, clarity of mind and relationship interactions. As we move through understanding each phase in the cycle, both energetically and intellectually, we will pair small and achievable yoga sequences to each cycle phase. Enabling you to reconnect with your body, with the feminine, with your own energy and the moon through small led meditations, visualisations, mantras and nourishing yoga poses.
This first workshop on menstruation will help you to understand and identify moments in your month that catch you out. Whether it is when you are full of energy, listless, tired or thinking “is there something wrong with me?”. And then align yoga movement to help nourish your time for bleeding, preovulation, ovulation and premenstruation.
If you continue onto the Yoga For Fertility Workshop the next morning, we will dive into understanding your cycle and body changes in line with fertility, which can be used to understand how your body supports you to conceive, whether you are looking to conceive or use the information for natural contraception. We will talk about tracking your cycle, aligning your cycle with the moon and what techniques are available for natural conception. For anyone going through ART or perimenopause this practice can be really beautiful to enable you to reconnect with your body and a cycle, when your own may not be available to you.
By attending one or both workshops, you will take away a deeper and greater understanding of why we bleed and what a gift the power of the womb gives women. Along with little gifts to take home, you will receive copies of the small sequences we will practice in both workshops, which all work to support the body; its monthly changes and hormone balance. No previous yoga experience is required. Come along to reconnect inward and celebrate why we cycle and bleed.
Both workshops include the following gifts:
A Rock & Co crystal for full moon intentions
A Rock & Co smudge stick for cleansing
Tangible props for meditation mantras and visualisation
