This experiential day long workshop is open to all women and yoga teachers/yoga therapists/health care practitioners who are seeking to create positive menstrual health and to enhance fertility, whether for themselves personally, or for their students and clients. The day counts as continuing professional development (CPD) for teachers who have completed prior trainings with Uma, and can also count towards CPD points for general yoga teachers and teachers/therapists who have prior trainings in prenatal/postnatal yoga, yoga therapy or yoga for women’s health. Healthcare practitioners with an interest in yoga and women’s health are also welcome to attend, provided they have a living interest in and practice of yoga.

The intention of this day is to provide practical experience of rhythmic and restorative yoga postures (asana), gestures (mudra), breath (pranayama), energy locks (bandha) and heart-based meditations (yoga nidra) that promote healthy menstruation and optimise fertility. Therapeutic sequences of integrated yoga postures will be taught, and relevant case studies discussed. An overview of common menstrual and fertility challenges and opportunities will be discussed in relation to appropriate yoga therapeutic responses. By the end of the day, participants will have a thorough understanding of the key practical and theoretical yoga therapeutic range of responses that are helpful to support healthy menstruation and optimal fertility.

There will be plenty of opportunity for questions and discussions of specific issues relation to yoga and menstrual health. If you have specific personal or professional interests relating to fertility and menstruation, you are invited to bring your questions and experiences to share with the group. The programme is open to responsive, intuitive atunements and adjustments to meet the specific needs of those attending.
