well woman yoga

As a sister science to yoga, Ayurveda has many wonderful ways to support health and well-being. How to support yourself through the menstrual cycle is one such element that can be incorporated into your life creating ease and balance throughout the cycle. Menstruation is viewed as an important ‘mirror’ which shows how the balance or imbalance in the rest of your body and mind are. In this short CPD Liese van Dam, Ayurveda practitioner, teacher at Ayurveda Academy in Amsterdam and Birthlight teacher, will teach you how to balance your menstrual cycle through simple, yet profound changes in nutrition and lifestyle. During the CPD Liese will spend time in her kitchen teaching you some simple recipes. Minor menstrual issues – like pain, heavy bleeding and migraines – are discussed and home-remedies to help you overcome these are given and made. Upon enrolment you will receive a list of ingredients which will be used during the workshop, so you can join the cooking and preparation from your own kitchen. The knowledge and recipes shared in this CPD are nurturing and beneficial for all women in their menstrual years and although this mini-CPD is not a training as an Ayurvedic therapist or practitioner, some information and tips can be very useful for teachers to share in Well woman classes and workshops.
