During my well woman yoga classes there is a heavy emphasis on practices that tone and balance the organs and glands within the pelvic bowl.
This area is considered to be the seat of a women’s vitality and my classes nourish the uniqueness that each woman’s menstrual cycle offers her – alongside the capacity to navigate all that it can bring. A woman’s cycling years provide a rich feedback system for her self-care, creativity, sexuality and spirituality. My classes are suitable for all women from menarche to post menopause, with or without a womb, whether menstruating or not, and whether maiden, mother, marga or crone.
I can highly recommend this well woman yoga class, which I’ve attended for a number of classes. Mandy is a very warm and welcoming teacher and I love the fact that she encourages you to listen to your own body and do what feels good for you. In particular I find the pelvic floor exercises very beneficial as this is something we can all forget to do in our busy lives. Really look forward to my next class!
What happens during a class?
Asanas (yoga postures) focus on spinal alignment, building strength and tone and opening the hips and pelvis. Prananyama (breathing techniques) are learned to utilise throughout your cycle as well as yoga nidra (mental and physical relaxation techniques).
Throughout the class reasons for the practices performed are offered and time is given to allow the participants to genuinely experience the effect of the yoga practice by combining the breath with the movement of the body. Each session runs in accordance with ‘inner season’ of the women present with special practices offered to meet the needs of each stage of a women’s monthly cycle, moon cycle or life arc.
The group dynamic in my classes is very important and I endeavour to create a warm and welcoming space. Providing a weekly time to sink deeply into your own self -care and deepening menstrual mindfulness. Classes are taught in a circle with opportunity for sharing and making new friendships.
