Yoga of the Feminine Evening Course
One session per week
Starts Feb 14
Jo Arganaraz, with 20 years of Yoga Practice and Yoga Teacher Trainer since 2013, will lead six sessions travelling through the seasons of the female cycle to reconnect to vitality.
Jo will introduce you to the practices of womb yoga: Supportive, Nurturing, Nourishing, Reconnecting, Grounding and Manifests Abundance
The female body in womb yoga is respected as the source of power and knowledge in a supportive, nourishing and nurturing environment.
This journey is nourishing for any woman but will particularly benefit those who are:
- facing menstrual cycle challenges such as difficulty navigating the premenstrum (‘PMT’), pain in the cycle or irregular cycles
- facing the challenge of disease within the womb
- struggling with fertility in conception or creativity in their life or have suffered pregnancy loss
- heading towards or are struggling with peri-menopause or menopause
This course is also suitable for pregnant women or mothers feeding young babies
The course includes:
Movement Practices which nourish the womb energy such as the ocean river flow, the Pancha Kosha sequence and the Pawnee Dance of life
An exploration of the menstrual cycle including sharing circles and healing practices related to the menarche and an introduction to the work of Alexander Pope (the red tent)
Practices for menstrual cycle difficulties
An exploration of yoga for fertility in both conception and our creative energy
The yoga of pregnancy and conscious birthing
An exploration of the goddess energies of the Maha Vidyas in relation to different stages of a woman’s life
Shakti circles and open heart sharing
Yoga nidra (deep relaxation) for reconnection and womb healing
Discussion of the integration of womb yoga with other yoga practices
Jo is the founder of yoga school ‘Return to the Self’ and has co-tutored over 10 Yoga Teacher Trainings as part of Yogafirst for 4 years alongside her mentor Peewee. Her experience is rooted in her 20 years as an ashtanga student and she has studied with senior teachers worldwide including Sharath Jois, Richard Freeman and her current teacher, founder of Ashtanga Yoga Dubai, Nea Ferrier. Jo is passionate about yoga, which has brought huge abundance to her life including 2 (active!) young children.
Jo’s approach to yoga is inclusive, friendly, flexible, light and explorative with intellectual depth, tremendous creativity and reverence. Jo offers classes and trainings in dynamic and restorative asana styles, chanting, pranayama (breath work) and meditation. After practicing yoga throughout pregnancy, Jo now teaches prenatal yoga and is the director of a Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training in it’s 3rd year.
Jo is a devoted student of Uma Dinsmore-Tuli’s Womb Yoga, an approach connecting women to their intuitive flow and inner teacher by reconnecting to their womb cycles. In the new era of ‘householder yoga’ the voice and body of a woman in yoga is powerful. We are now writing a new page in the history of yoga with the female body and spirit, working alongside and reigniting the stories of bhakti and tantra practice. We find ourselves at a point in history where the divine feminine is a voice that needs to be listened to!
By opening up the pathways through yoga practice in whatever form is most resonant, we reawaken our lives, are guided towards greater abundance and return to the immense love and light of our true nature.
