Full Description

Location: Episcopal School of Dallas, 4100 Merrell Rd, Dallas, T 75229

Menopause is more often than not a challenging stage in a woman’s life. The milestone that is commonly called the “change of life” often carries a negative connotation which is constantly reinforced in our mass-media culture. The fluctuation of hormones may create disharmony in the body, mind and spirit. Physical symptoms seem to appear out of nowhere and the emotional upheaval that ensues may leave us anxious, depressed, angry, or feeling helpless. Our spirit may deplete and a sense of disconnect leaves us with the perception of being alone and lost.

This Yoga Therapy workshop shows participants the path of self-healing, an innate quality we all possess. Whether your challenges are physical, emotional and/or spiritual, we teach you techniques that draw from the beautiful ancient tradition of Yoga as well as modern medical and scientific knowledge, that bring you back into balance, reduce anxiety, increase stress resistance and improve sleep quality and mood. The practices we teach address the following common symptoms that accompany peri-menopause, menopause, and post-menopause:

• Hot flashes
• Night sweats
• Sleep problems
• Mood change
• Anxiety/Panic
• Headaches
• Memory & concentration problems
• Weight gain and slowed metabolism
• Thinning, dry hair and dry skin
• Urinary incontinence
• Feeling of disconnect
