About The Event
Join Petra Coveney (founder of Menopause Yoga) and guest teacher Dina Cohen who will give a short talk about the benefits of dance through menopause, then lead you through some easy mobilising and energising pranayama, followed by dancing and then a bit of a stretch and perhaps a guided relaxation/visualisation.
Dance is beneficial for:
~ Stress Release: literally shaking it out
~ Cardio excercise: raising heart rate , burns calories
~ Uplifting FUN - alleviates depression
~ No Wrong or Right moves
~ Emotional Self-expression
~ Present moment awareness HERE NOW
~ 76% reduced risk of dementia
~ improves spatial memory
~ boosts connectivity between cerebral hemispheres
~ integrates rational, musical, kinesthetic and emotional brain functions which is great for neruoplacticity.
Dina says: "I didn’t choose teaching, it seemed to choose me, over and over again. And now, navigating my way through my ’second spring’, I find that the rewards of s-lo-w-i-n-g down, tuning in and learning to rest deeply have been equally beneficial. My teachings have evolved over 20 years, grounded in over 1,000s hours of trainings with renowned teachers, and experience working with students from all walks of life: refugees and asylum seekers, dancers from the Royal Ballet, seniors practicing Chair Yoga or festival goers that find me plying my trade in a field surrounded by revellers and heavy beats. I love learning and sharing."
The rest of the day will be led by Petra and include:
- Yoga: slow vinyasa flow, elements of Yin and Restorative Yoga. (It is suitable for beginners to experienced yoga students and teachers. However, due to being online, it is not suitable if you have any physical injuries or conditions that restrict unsupervised movement)
- Guided Meditation
- Deep Relaxation
- Journal writing.
