This unique course is recommended for personal development and professional development — offering certification through Yoga Alliance International and High Vibe Yoga to teach Women’s SelfCare Informed Yoga – with refinements in women’s psychology, physiology, sexuality & spirituality at the 200 Hour level.
~ Enjoy a fresh and honest education about women’s sexuality, physicality, psychology and spirituality — including understanding pleasure, menstrual reclamation, embracing fertility, honoring and supporting menopause, developing self-esteem, healing depression and eating disorders, and busting cultural taboos around the female body.
~ Learn an elegant and sensual Yoga that is for a woman’s body and psyche and can be practiced anytime of the month, day or year — no matter what. This is a different perspective than a Yoga that has to be adapted for a woman during her menstruation, pre-menstrual sensitivity, pregnancy, menopause and other natural life cycles.
~ Come into alignment with regular pelvic care. I’ve seen over and over again, women healing themselves or improving their conditions of chronic yeast infections, bladder or vaginal infections, menstrual pain, prolapse, birth wounding, low libido, dryness caused by menopause, vulvodynia and painful sex. Move things that are unaligned out of the system with these easy to understand pelvic care practices that remove shame, guilt and fear and boost the female energy body, pleasure and aliveness.
~ Experience deep freedom with Yoga Nidra for women — a potent meditative resource for healing, insight, and empowerment.
~ Increase your comfort with discomfort with powerful communication tools that boost self love, confidence, acceptance and empathy. These tools will help you work with and welcome joy, anger, jealousy, sadness, fear, bliss and sexual feelings.
~ Polish and develop your healthy boundaries. Learn to feel grounded and stay in your body when saying yes & no to family, lovers, friends and colleagues.
~ Learn to sense where the sexual organs are located in the body — and what they are capable of! Understand why women’s emotions, menstruation and energy levels work in cycles and how to work with these cycles.
~ Incorporate the the lunar (moon) cycles into your life. For many women this facilitates clear decision making, a deep trust and connection with nature and access to a nature based calendar that reveals when to work, plan and be social and when to reserve energy, retreat and rest.
~ Experience and understand the nature of your breath with Connected Breathwork. Open-mouth, conscious and connected breathing naturally releases dimethyltryptamine (DMT) into the brain. This can create expanded emotional awareness, peak experiences of oneness, and spiritual breakthroughs.
~ Learn self-care rituals extracted from ancient Tantric texts that replenish the female nervous system, harmonize breath patterns, soothe the sexual organs, release old trauma and tension in the body and boost the female psyche. These rituals are respectful of the various cycles in a woman’s life and body which is crucial to female vitality, self-respect and spiritual empowerment.
~ Dive into the surprising new science of sexuality and how it relates to Yoga and Classical Tantra. Experience deep relaxation, pleasure, and self love with Tantric yoga practices. These practices move energy by working with chakras, pranayama, asana mudra, bandha, deep relaxation and meditations including yoga nidra, sound meditations, moving meditations and visualisations.
~ Receive a surprising education in how to lovingly and skillfully support women through pregnancy, birth preparation, and postnatal recovery — using the most up to date, exciting research and methods available including holistic yoga techniques like yoga nidra, restorative yoga postures, mantra, pranayama (breath), asana and nada (sound).
~Gain an honest and simple to understand foundation in trauma informed yoga for women using current brain research and practices using movement, breath, sound and focus.
~ Learn the foundations of women’s self-defense with Krav Maga — widely considered one of the most effective and practical forms of self-defense. Krav Maga is not technically a martial art, but rather a tactical defense system. Learn to fend off an attacker, increase your peace of mind when walking alone, and feel a sense of achievement from working with your natural instincts… making them more efficient and effective.
~ Learn to sense when women may need additional mental physical and emotional support and discover who is available and working in these fields.
~ Explore somatic movement exercises and the direct relationship between somatics (the living body) and yoga. Work directly with the nervous system to release chronic muscular tension, relieve chronic pain, and improve posture and movement. The exercises are extremely slow and gentle, and are appropriate for women of all ages and fitness levels. Somatic movement is consciously moving the body with the intention of focusing on the internal experience of the movement rather than the external appearance or result of the movement.
~ Women’s Wealth & Business Mindset — explore business and wealth as a powerful personal development path. Learn how to shake off the familial, cultural, and ancestral conditioning around wealth and business. I’ve seen again and again how transformative it is for women to explore their relationship to wealth and business. And how many shocking self discoveries are made by doing so.
~ Experience and learn how to create and guide honest, intimate and inspiring Women’s Circles for your friends, family & community
~ Many women say they feel that their throat is blocked. Investigate a surprising history of the female voice and free your own natural voice with powerful vocal practices designed for the female body, mind and spirit.
