About the Well Woman Yoga Therapy Teacher Training
This course is all about yoga for women’s health and vital energy throughout our lives. It shares techniques to feel, nurture and build the feminine energy of Shakti for the practical healing and benefit of women in all stages of life. This approach to yoga therapy for women’s well-being is founded upon the understanding that conscious respectful awareness of the menstrual cycle, and of cycles in women’s lives are crucial to female vitality, self-respect and spiritual empowerment.

The Well Woman yoga therapy training (also known as Womb Yoga) is for yoga teachers and experienced yoga practitioners who sense that yoga could be of more practical use to all women in managing health, vital energy and well-being. It is also suitable for holistic health-care practitioners with a sound yoga background who are working in the field of women’s health and would like to integrate the healing benefits of yoga with their own therapeutic practice.

The course presents therapeutic and enlivening yoga practices to support all experiences of femininity throughout a woman’s life. Topics covered included menstruation, pre-menstrual tension, fertility, subfertility, optimal fertility, assisted conception, feminine sexuality, perimenopausal mood swings, headaches, hot flushes and post-menopausal health concerns including osteoporosis. It addresses health issues related to the female pelvic organs, including postnatal recovery and prolapse, and other issues of concern to women in particular, such as menstrual pain, low self-esteem, depression, anaemia and eating disorders.

All these issues are addressed within the context of a yoga therapeutic understanding of feminine emotional life, lunar cycles and the play of the elements in the female body. The course encourages you to think and feel for yourself, and aims to provide you with practical tools from yoga therapy and tantric philosophy to help you to build programmes specially suited to the needs of women seeking full vitality and well-being. Conscious respectful awareness of menstrual and other life cycles form the foundation of this approach to yoga therapy for women’s health.

The course combines theory and practice from yoga and tantra to offer you fresh perspectives, new understandings and a deep appreciation of the healing power of yoga as therapy to optimise health and delight in feminine energy. Practices taught include: asana, pranayama, mudra, bandha, deep relaxation and profound meditations including yoga nidra, sound meditations, moving meditations, visualisations and chants to the deep feminine.

The course content and philosophical background is set out in Uma Dinsmore-Tuli’s book Yoni Shakti: A woman’s guide to power and freedom through yoga and tantra.
