Mindful Menopause [S]
Saturday 12 October
Tutor: Carol Carvalho
Carol has been practising as a homeopath, life coach and energy healer since 1997. Join her to explore, share and understand the process of the menopause and how it can affect our physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing on a daily basis. You will learn about nutrition advice, over the counter supplements, lifestyle choices, breathing and mindfulness techniques that can help you manage the menopausal process and symptoms, and bring wider life benefits. It will not deal with medical or HRT information or symptoms specific to individuals.
If you’re already going through the menopause, the course will give you strategies you can use immediately. Equally, it would be useful if you are approaching the peri-menopausal phase, so that you can be aware of the changes and make adjustments to your life so you have time and space to help you through the transition and enjoy the process.
Back Care and Spinal Health [S] [13+]
Saturday 8 February
Tutor: Klara Walters-James
“Beautifully done: excellent leader.”
Are you tired of back pain running your life? Have you tried a lot of treatments but nothing seems to work? Would you like to support someone you live with who has back pain? At this workshop, you will pick up tips, anecdotes and pieces of advice from a fellow back pain sufferer who also happens to be a yoga teacher. We will explore some yoga poses and short sequences that may help mobilise the spine and relieve back pain and you will go home with a suggested daily practice to help keep the back strong. We will also focus on how to get through the day from the moment you wake up until the moment you go to sleep and how to manage back pain related challenges whether you are moving around, sitting, driving, exercising or resting.
