We are very fortunate to have a full day workshop with Bobby Clennell, who has been a direct student of B.K.S. Iyengar and Geeta Iyengar and has been teaching Iyengar yoga for 40 years. Bobby is a core faculty member at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of New York, so we are delighted that she is finding some time for NELIYI during her visit to the UK.
Author and illustrator of The Woman's Yoga Book and a children's yoga book, Watch Me Do Yoga, Bobby’s teaching style is strong, energetic, precise and kind. She is also the creator of “Yoga Yantra”, a short animated film, based on the movements of B.K.S. Iyengar during his own yoga practice. For more information: www.bobbyclennell.com.
This 5 hour workshop is devoted entirely to women and will focus on women's practice; however, all are very welcome to attend.
The Menstrual Cycle: We will learn how to develop a cyclically responsive practice that moves us through us the ups and downs of the month, promotes vibrant good health and boosts fertility.
Menopause and Post Menopause: Menopause is a critical period of adjustment. Just as physical and psychological disturbances occur when menstruation begins, you have to face them again at menopause. Learn to navigate through this transition with a practice that calms the nerves, brings emotional balance and deals with some of the common symptoms that women experience such as hot flashes, insomnia, fatigue and anxiety.
We will also explore the challenges and rewards of the post-menopausal phase. Issues covered include weakness, stiffness, joint problems and loss of confidence.
