Summer Moon Retreat
August 5 – 7, 2022
Chyan Community Field, Cornwall

This 3-day retreat is aimed at giving you time and space to just be. When we stop the doing and turn our attention to the simplicity of the present moment, we give ourselves the opportunity to get closer to what is important to us.

Workshops

Vanaprastha Menopause Workshop for Women
Nov 21, 10am – 5pm
Lime House Yoga Studio

Understanding the importance of the inner journey and how this nourishes and fortifies us through the different phases of life.

Women are cyclical beings – governed by our fluctuating hormones, we encounter change: from week to week during the menstruating years and over our lifetime as we transition through the menopause. Understanding these cycles can help us to navigate these changes with a greater sense of harmony. In this workshop, we will explore the last four limbs of yoga and how these become increasingly significant in a woman’s life.

The session will include:

    • Meditation techniques and practice; understanding why meditation is an important tool for women 
    • Samkhya philosophy teachings
    • Key asanas for menstruation and menopause
    • Pranayama for hormone balancing
    • How to do your own Moon Retreat
    • Bach Flower Remedies for balancing emotions
    • An opportunity to share experiences and learn from one another

About the Teacher

On entering peri-menopause, Lucinda embarked upon a personal enquiry into the cyclical nature of womanhood as part of her spiritual practice. The concept of the ‘Moon Retreat’ was born out of several years of taking time out each month – initially in a friend’s caravan. Through journalling and charting her cycle, as well as reading many inspiring books on women’s health and spirituality, Lucinda began to see patterns emerging as well as an understanding of how the spiritual journey of the yogi reflects the journey within at the time of menstruation. After going on a Vision Quest and reading about ancient feminine wisdom traditions, Lucinda continued to refine her monthly practice of retreat as part of her spiritual life. Incorporating her knowledge of Yoga, Buddhism and Ayurveda, Moon Yoga events offer an insight into the different phases of a woman’s life – how by gaining a greater understanding of these phases we can enjoy the gifts of womanhood and bring greater harmony.  Over the last 10 years, Lucinda has led workshops, given talks and run weekly classes for women. She is a senior YAP Registered Yoga Teacher, Bach Flower Registered Practitioner and has completed 50 hours training in Ayurveda and 10 hours on Women’s Hormones with Dr Claudia Welch.
