Monthly Women’s Wellness Yoga Workshop

Exploring Conscious Menstruality

with Clare Cooper

Sunday 15th April 1:00 – 3:30

The Senhouse Centre, Whitehaven

£20

 

Our Women’s Wellness Yoga Workshops run monthly, and this month we’ll be exploring Conscious Menstruality ~ How we can nurture ourselves through our cycle and Menopause, and be aware of our different energies and needs at different points of the month.

We’ll explore Yoga practices that can support us at each phase of our cycle, connecting to our outward, creative energy and supporting our need for deep rest. I’ve been working with these practices myself for the past few years alongside training with Uma Dinsmore Tuli in Women’s Wellness Yoga Therapy and have found they have completely transformed my experiences of my cycle, significantly reduced pain and helped me to welcome and understand the changes in energy through different aspects of my cycle.

Learning to work with our cycle, to recognise our different energies is deeply transformative, we can use the Yoga practices to learn to embrace our cycle, welcoming each phase for the insight and energies it brings us, over time transforming negative experiences into something much more positive as we deepen in awareness of ourselves and our bodies.

Looking forward to sharing these valuable practices to nurture and nourish our minds and bodies. Clare x

Chakra Balancing Yoga Workshop for Strength & Compassion

with Clare Cooper

Sunday 11th June 1:00 – 3:00

West Coast Yoga Studio, Whitehaven

Authentic power, balanced with love and compassion is the energy the Earth needs right now, yet can be a balance which many of us struggle to find. As parents too this is a balance we can find difficult to achieve ~ we know our children need strong, firm boundaries to feel safe, yet also we want to be loving, gentle, kind and connected towards them.

For too long many of us have struggled to find this balance, leaving us feeling frustrated or disempowered as parents, and in our work and relationships.

We may feel we swing between being ‘too nice’ or feeling ‘too strict’, uncomfortable in our power and wanting to be kind, yet unsure how to move forward.

At times it can feel as though these two qualities are polar opposites, and we can feel ourselves flailing with parenting, caught swinging between being two seemingly opposite ways of parenting. Yet Yoga teaches us that both of these qualities can co-exist within us, and through beginning to understand the chakra energy centers in the body, we can learn to find the balance between authentic strength and loving compassion.

And this is the shift which the worlds needs right now. Power balanced with love and compassion.


Through Yoga postures, breathing, and chakra visualisation, we will explore how we can connect to our own authentic inner strength and learn to balance this with the unconditional love, kindness and compassion of our heart center.

If this resonates with you, and you would like to explore how Yoga can nurture your journey to authentic power and heartfelt connection contact Clare Cooper on 07906 188 345 or milestonesofmotherhood@yahoo.co.uk to book your place.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yoga To Nurture And Restore

West Coast Yoga and Pilates Studio, Whitehaven

Sunday 4th Dec 10:00-1:00

£25

At the time of year when many of us are at our most frazzled, this three hour workshop will explore how we can use Yoga to nurture ourselves, restoring our sense of peace and balance through mind, body and emotions. So much of life is about giving; giving our time, love and energy to our work, our children, our families, and it is surprising how little time there can be for us to receive; that is to give to ourselves. Yet if we do not, we risk depleting our inner resources which can leave us feeling stressed, exhausted and feeling guilty as we are unable to give the best of ourselves to the people and projects we love.

During the workshop we will explore how Yoga can help us redress this balance through:

  • Identifying barriers to nurturing ourselves
  • Postures to release tension and stress
  • Flowing practices to release energy and build strength and flexibility
  • Develop awareness of our mental patterns and the value of affirmations to encourage nurturing thinking
  • The value and effectiveness of breathing practices in transforming our inner experiences
  • Restorative practices to cultivate our inner reserves of peace, love and connection
