Full Description

We are going to use womb yoga practices to explore our cycles and learn how to honor and respect our own unique rhythms and rhythms of our Great Mother and tap into our blood wisdom. All these practices invite us to come back home to ourselves and make us feel nourished and connected to the source within.

We are going to embark on a 4-day journey to deepen our knowledge about our menstrual cycles and their 4 phases and archetypes (Inner Spring and Virgin, Inner Summer and Mother, Inner Autumn and Enchantress and Inner Winter and Hag).

We will use practices that connect us to our womb and heart with love and respect, honoring the life force deep within. Flowing, rhythmic movements free and unblock stuck energy, bring vitality and flow of our life force. We will tap into our creativity and sexuality. We will connect to 5 elements within us (earth, water, fire, air, space) that are present in all creation. We will learn that our inner cycles are very deeply connected to all the cycles in natural world around us.

Facilitator:

Martina Vonkomerova is a passionate yoga practitioner and teacher. Her own practice brings her a deep understanding that yoga is not separate from life and that it can be a truly useful tool in everyday life. She started to teach yoga 2 years ago after she completed her 200h teacher training with Marco Peralta in Portugal.

Sharing this journey with others makes her explore yoga from all different angles diving deeper into her own understanding of what yoga really means. Her passion to explore yoga from a more feminine point of view brought her to teachings of womb yoga. She finds these practices very powerful in a sense that it brings women to a deep connection with their bodies and life within, tapping into their inner wisdom. After completing a teacher training with Uma Dinsmore Tuli in 2017 she wants to share these teachings with other women as she feels that this is a way to feminine empowerment.

She also facilitates monthly women’s circles and practices Thai Yoga Massage in Lisbon. Her vision is to create space and offer practices that bring us back to ourselves and make us feel right at home.
