A Weekend of Yoga and More for Menopausal Women
Diana Cullum-Dugan, a registered dietitian, yoga teacher and founder of Namaste Nutrition, will present a weekend of yoga for women in the life cycle of change. The event will take place from March 15 to 17, in Watertown, and feature yoga practice, guided meditation, Ayurveda and a focus on nutrition during menopause.
“The path to holistic health is unique for each woman, but there are basic biomechanical principles that can facilitate healing and empowerment through the life cycle of peri-menopause and menopause,” says Cullum-Dugan. “Through practice of active and restorative asana, as well as guided meditation and pranayama, women will be uplifted and inspired in their cycle of change.”
Cullum-Dugan, who will co-present the workshop with yoga teacher Deb Neubauer, says that sessions will cover different challenges associated with the change of life, and ways to nourish and support the body during the hormonal changes of peri-menopause and menopause. “We’ll discuss hot flashes, anxiety, irritability, insomnia, fatigue, depression, memory loss, erratic menstruation and other symptoms of ‘the change,’” says Cullum-Dugan. “Our evening yoga sessions are deeply restorative and the morning practices are fiery, while the nutrition session covers food to tame the fire of change.”
Cost: $200; individual sessions also available. Location: Watertown Center for the Healing Arts, 22 Mt. Auburn St., Watertown. For more information and registration, call 617-393-2200, email [email protected] or visit NamasteNutrition.net.
