For yourself, for your students: a weekend immersion on yoga for women’s health!

 

Vista Yoga is pleased to offer a concentrated weekend of yoga with Patty Schmidt (RYT 500hr), dedicated to women’s health and wellness. In service to your YTT300 hr, or as a stand-alone immersion, please join us! We’ll ask: how can yoga serve a woman at each lifestage? And across a range of embodied practices, through asana and pranayama, with study and dedication, we answer: Yoga cultivates discernment and wisdom. It helps us to inhabit our whole self, and so guides us toward health and wellness–in our daily practice, for our immediate needs, and our long-term lives.

Yoga is a powerful force for maintaining health and wellness across the systems of the body. We’ll consider the female pelvic floor and pelvic health, as well as the endocrine system, including yogic considerations of women’s reproductive health and menopause/post-cycling life. Through sequencing and cueing practices, we’ll examine yoga tools to support women’s everyday health, as well as what to do in daily practice when health concerns arise (your own and others’)– whether pelvic floor dysfunction, breast and other cancers, osteoporosis, or eating disorders, stress and anxiety, or trauma. The weekend kicks off with a spacious, donation-based class to support women’s health in our community. Come join us!
