Menopause Yoga Teacher Training - JULY, 2021
Time & Location
About The Event
This MY course is open to ALL qualified women teachers, including those who are not yet in a stage of menopause.
Please note: The difference between this course and the others is that has less focus on personal experiences of the menopause and is more focussed on professional development.
The women's circle discussions will be broader and focus on supporting other women in menopause.
As with the other MY courses, it will qualify you to teach both MY specific classes as well as incorprate menopause asana poses, breathwork and meditation in your general yoga classes.
Women going through menopause benefit from attending yoga classes with other women who are on the menopause journey so that there is a shared experience and sense of community. However, many women prefer to attend general yoga classes and women in their 30s-40s may not realise that the are experiencing perimenopause symptoms. They may attribute these to daily living and stress. Yopu will be more alert to the signals and symptoms and able to modify their practice or signpost them to professionalo support, if requested.
This course helps you to become more aware of the symptons and signs of menopause in your students so that you can support these women by offering modifications for yoga poses and props. many women feel a snese of embarrassment or even shame if they have hot flushes, but you can make them feel relaxed and welcome in menopause-supportive environments.
