The lotus flower starts as a small flower with its roots in the mud. It grows in an upward direction beyond the waters surface towards the light. Eventually it blossoms and turns into a beautiful flower.
A woman’s life starts with youth, passing through middle age, and ending in old age. As a healthy woman matures she experiences three important stages in her life—menstruation, the ability for pregnancy and birth, and menopause. Eventually—and just as the lotus flower, a woman blossoms into a beautiful flower when she moves towards spirit as she ages.
Join us for this woman’s workshop to learn the practice of yoga postures and breathing techniques for physical, mental and spiritual stability during menopause and while aging gracefully. We will also encompass postures to increase muscle strength, bone density and joint flexibility, balance hormones, move the lymph system, lose weight and get a restful sleep.
Open for discussion are topics such as the mind/body connection, how to live purposefully and obtain a brighter outlook on life overall. Light refreshments will be available.
