Yoga for Women’s Health with Cynthia Bates
May 20, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
“Yoga frees one from life’s sorrows and from the diseases and fluctuations of the mind. It gives serenity and composure, an inward unity amidst the diverse struggles of life. It is the art of knowing oneself and knowing the eternal truth.”
– Geeta Iyengar, Yoga: A Gem for Women
A woman’s life goes through three distinct transformations in not just her body but her identity and self. The first one comes with menstruation, the second with having children and the last with the cessation of menstruation or menopause. When women ignore the needs of their physical and emotional body it can lead to illness and disease. Thanks to the generosity and genius of B.K.S. Iyengar’s daughter, Geeta Iyengar, we have a blueprint for how to use yoga as a practice to live our lives more deeply, more fully as a woman. Join Cynthia for an experiential practice of yoga through the stages of a woman’s life.
This stand-alone workshop is part of the Sadhana Studies program. It is appropriate for the eager student, aspiring yoga teachers and current yoga professionals.
$110 per person
