The systems and cycles within a woman’s body are perhaps the most intelligent & awe-inspiring that biology has produced and yet it’s still an area of the body that is often overlooked in yoga.  The beauty of this system is often obscured by societal and cultural taboos and an overall lack of education and awareness of the these incredibly complex and refined processes.  However, awareness & yoga postures can be a brilliant way to support the different stages of this cycle both preventatively for healthy, balanced hormones as well for a host of different endocrine & reproductive challenges.  Yoga course & books notoriously mention cure-all poses for things like PMS or fertility but there is no explanation for why or when to use them. In this class we’ll talk on the 4 phases of the female reproductive cycle and the foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine as it applies to female physiology to give you a better perspective on the application of yoga for this system.  Then we’ll experience a practice that looks at poses & modifications to support this intelligent internal system.  Understanding our physiology and applying Chinese Medicine principles can be an efficient & effective way to understand and individualize a yoga practice to meet our unique female needs (as well as those of our students). This class begins with a lecture to understand this unique system and is followed by a practice to bring those concepts to life.  This class is open to all levels with some vinyasa experience.
