Yoga and Women's Health

2025 dates TBA

With Carol Murphy

This training deep dives into Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine in relation to Women’s Health. We will cover the cycle and the stages of menopause and it so is suitable for women of all ages. The information you will receive on this training will help you balance your hormones in relation to your individual constitution and educate you about common diseases and imbalances associated with women’s health in relation to Ayurveda and TCM. It will empower you as a woman to walk into your sovereignty and power. Correct Knowledge in relation to your hormones, the cycle and menopause will also allow you to release unnecessary anxiety that you may be unconsciously holding so that you can align with the strong and beautiful woman that you are and give you the confidence to share the teachings with others. 

In Ayurveda, Menopause is called Rajonivritti. “Raja” relates to Rajas (movement, yang and also blood). “Nivritti” means completion. Ayurveda recognised menopause as a time of accomplishment and celebration; it is not a disease. Learning to understand symptoms and build resources is essential to moving into this stage of life with ease and harmony.

Women’s reproductive stage of is known as Rajaswala Avastha in Ayurveda. TCM and Ayurveda offer deep insight into how to tackle hormonal balance through diet and practices. Educating yourself in the cycle and learning tools to nourish you during this time, can help to create a healthier mental attitude towards your cycle. This is essential for fostering a calm, confident mind throughout the bleed, helping to subdue anxiety, which can in turn reduce HPO (hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian) stress.

This is an excellent add-on for Yin and Restorative Teachers who wish to deepen their therapeutic knowledge in relation to Women’s Health, lead women’s circles and guide women towards empowered being.
