Yoga in Tune with your Menstrual Cycle; Period time and Pre-menstrual time                       workshop with Sue Blanch

What does your menstrual cycle have to do with yoga?

Discover how to use yoga and menstrual cycle awareness to explore how your cycle influences you physically, mentally and emotionally, It affects us more than we have been led to believe.
Bringing yoga in tune with your cycle eases stress and tiredness, bringing balance and harmony. It can help alleviate, or manage, cycle problems, such as period pain and PMS. A lot of yoga is designed by men for men, so doesn’t take account of our cyclical nature – this approach does. Going with your natural ebbs and flows creates wholeness and wellbeing.

We’ll focus on period and pre-menstrual times:
• Enjoy a nurturing yoga sequence for period time and how to take the opportunity to recharge yourself
• Explore ways to navigate the often challenging pre-menstrual time, including a releasing and grounding yoga sequence
• Find out the optimum practices to do and which practices to avoid and why
• Discover the special capabilities we have during these phases, how to capitalise on your strengths and support yourself on your wobbly days
• Gain insights into how to be more mindful of your cyclical changes, including a compassionate meditation
• Relax into a yoga nidra (deep relaxation) to connect you to your cycle and revitalise you.

All women with a cycle are most welcome whether you practise yoga or not, including women with amenorrhea (absent periods).

You will be given instructions for the two yoga sequences so that you can practice them at home afterwards if you wish.

This has really changed the way I think about my cycle - having the space to learn and talk openly about something that is so vital yet so misunderstood.” C, London

Adjustment and Hands-on work in postures with Nigel Jones


Learn how to help your yoga students in class with safe and effective hands on adjustments. Yoga is usually a physical activity and helping people with physical contact can be very rewarding for both parties if done in a safe and positive way. There are many ways to do this, and on this workshop we will look at all the important things involved in the process. Observation, safe positioning, communication and a variety of techniques will be explored. There will be a range of postures looked at, but we will be open to any postures you are interested in.
Nigel has spent many years teaching and giving hands on adjustments to hundreds of people of all shapes and sizes and uses techniques in his classes that he has tried and tested over many years.



Nigel's Adjustments Workshop provided great general ideas and information around adjustments which could be applied to any posture, as well as lots of hands-on experience of both giving and receiving adjustments within specific postures. The opportunity to play around with different pressures and movements with fellow teachers giving on-the-spot feedback made me feel confident and inspired to now use them more within my own classes. Thank you Nigel"  -  Tanya
