Ayurveda for Women’s Health

11am – 2pm, Sunday, Jan. 21, 2018

Blue Lotus Yoga, 401 N. West Street, Raleigh, NC

The ancient science of Ayurveda offers much wisdom to support women’s health. Ayurveda teaches how to balance our bodily rhythms by synchronizing with the rhythms of nature. The result is greater energy, strong immunity, and the kind of health that makes the skin glow.

In this workshop, we will explore how to support your natural cycles of digestion, menstruation, and effort/rest. You will discover:

  • Why constipation is a critical imbalance for women to remedy ASAP (and how!)
  • How menstruation can be your secret weapon in creating good health
  • The effect of stress on women’s hormonal balance – and what to do about it
  • Why pre-menstrual pain occurs, and 3 keys to a healthy pain-free cycle
  • 5 powerful practices to strengthen women’s natural rhythms, drawing on asana, pranayama and kitchen herbs
