Ever feel like you’ve been put on the spin cycle with no access to the controls? For many women, the midday stage of life is a challenging time. It is marked by the variable mix of physical and hormonal fluctuations that occur in our bodies, and the strain of balancing the many needs of our family and community. Yoga offers a wealth of tools to help us stabilize physically, mentally and emotionally. Nov 22, Sat, 10 a.m-5 p.m. Instructor: Robin Rothenberg. (5.5 CEUs, CMEs, PDAs)

Please bring: Yoga mat, large towel or blanket, and comfortable clothes for movement.

Description: In this workshop Robin will hone in on the particular imbalances brought on by the tides of change in mid-life, offering practices and practical understanding to help you live with more balance, grace and levity.

Robin shares her vast experience as a yoga therapist, as well as her work with the National Institutes of Health developing the protocol for the MSFlash study, designed to address hot flashes in menopausal women. This workshop will provide valuable natural solutions for midday-life challenges for yoga teachers and yoga practitioners alike.

Upon completion of this seminar you will be able to:

  • Practice how to utilize the breath to calm and balance your nervous system
  • Practice adaptive asana to support unstable joints and prevent injury
  • Practice mantra as a powerful method to interrupt negative thought patterns and increase memory function
  • Describe the unique need for self-care, and balance between rest and work in mid-life to support proper physiologic function
  • Describe how yoga can be a personal self-care regime that addresses more than just physical well-being, but also psycho-emotional, mental and spiritual
