Open to women, men and non-binary identifying persons who desire to know more.
Women represent an overwhelming majority of those who practice yoga today and yet so often yoga practices must be adapted and modified to the cycles and stages of a woman’s life (think pregnancy, postpartum, menstruation, menopause).
This workshop invites you to experience a movement practice that is deeply attuned to the female body and physiology, creating experiences of ease and pleasure in your body so that you can embody greater confidence, clarity and self-connection. Over two days of practice and discussion, we’ll explore how our embodied spiritual practices can include a feminine perspective that compels greater self -understanding and self-compassion for those who identify as women.
We’ll touch on topics not always given attention in modern yoga, including the role of sensuality in our practices, the effects of trauma, how to serve the expansion of our life force, and what ‘embodied feminism’ might look like.
Friday (2hrs): Relaxation
This is a practice to understand and work with tension specific to the female body. We'll discuss the implications of female holding patterns and learn how to create more ease in our bodies so that a greater range of life force and sensuality is available to us.
Saturday (2hrs): Feeling
An exploration of sensuality and feminine embodiment, this practice will focus on receptivity, attuning to the felt-sense of pleasure and the process of becoming more sensually awake so that we can enhance our current spiritual practices, our relationships and our lives.
