Loving your life after 50: Menopausal Magnificence

Every woman goes through menopause and every woman has an experience that is unique to her.


A slow, mindful yoga practice can support and help you through the menopause experience. It can also help us to reframe this time of life as one of empowerment, independence, and thriving, NOT wilting and withdrawing! Yoga offers many gifts for addressing menopause; not just for the problems and annoyances of perimenopause, menopause, and post-menopause.


In this 4 hour workshop we will complete an aryuvedic health assessment and explore how applying the practices of yoga, Ayurveda and abhyanga can help with life transitions into our wisdom years.

Topics for discussion:
• Hot flashes
• Weight gain
• Not knowing how to deal with menopausal symptoms
• Vaginal atrophy
• Understanding the science of menopause
• Mood changes
• Insomnia
• Achy joints

Yoga Therapy for Pelvic Health

This 4 session workshop focuses on bringing mobility to muscles in and around the pelvic floor. Integrative yoga therapy can help relieve pain resulting from pelvic floor dysfunction and improve the strength and coordination of pelvic floor muscles.

 

Tension in any part of your body can easily cause a domino effect if not treated promptly. If one muscle is tight, it can tug on structures all around it. Pelvic floor tightness can contribute to pain in the hips, low back, knees, even all the way down to the feet and up to the jaw! 

 

Yoga therapy for Pelvic health incorporates mindful breathing, PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation) technique called contract-relax stretching, meditation and restorative
practices.

 

Some of the conditions that may benefit from evidence based therapeutic yoga practices specifically for the pelvic floor:

  • Leaking when coughing or sneezing (urinary incontinence)

  • Urge to run to the bathroom (urinary urgency)

  • Multiple trips to the bathroom at night (nocturia)

  • Trouble controlling gas

  • Chronic pelvic/vaginal pain

  • Constipation

  • Difficulty with bowel movements

  • Difficulty with urination

  • Discomfort in the lower back, groin, abdomen, hips, and leg

  • Painful intercourse (sometimes after giving birth)
