WOMEN’S HEALTH YOGA TEACHER TRAINING (24 HOURS)
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA | JUNE 6-9, 2019
We will be heading to Sydney, Australia for the Yoga for Women’s Health Teacher Training. Taught by Tiffany Cruikshank, each day will begin with a daily asana and meditation practice varying from simple vinyasa practices to more hatha-based and restorative practices to work with each phase of the cycle. Each afternoon session will be primarily lecture with interactive components and case studies to help seal the information in. By the end of the training, participants will leave with a thorough understanding of the female reproductive life cycle and effective strategies for personal practice and/or work with students through a traditional Chinese medicine perspective. This training is open to yoga teachers, serious inquisitive students, and specialists in the field with yoga experience.
This 4-day, 24-hour immersion yoga teacher training is a great way for our teachers and dedicated practitioners to join an advanced short course without having to commit to prolonged periods away from work or long plane journeys. The price of these urban-style yoga teacher trainings includes the training tuition only, making it accessible for local teachers or those who want to find their own food and accommodations. Each day will feature a daily 2-hour morning practice relevant to the course content and follow with an afternoon training lecture and a short evening homework assignment to help you retain the information.

Some yoga teacher trainings have recommended prep work to review before the training begins.

Yoga for Women’s Health (24 hours)
This immersion yoga teacher training in Australia begins with a look at the physiology of the female reproductive cycle from a Western and Chinese medicine perspective. Then we’ll explore how to use this information to support each phase of the cycle and fertility as a representation of a healthy cycle. We’ll dive deeper into strategies for working with and supporting women trying to get pregnant as well as those undergoing IVF and working to prevent miscarriage; we’ll also briefly review male infertility. We’ll take a peek at the most common female reproductive issues including: polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, fibroids, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), dysmenorrhea, amenorrhea, and menopause. We will discuss how lifestyle, meditation, and yoga for women’s health can influence all of this as we go. Since the Chinese Medicine perspective is the backbone of our work this week participants are required to read and know Voices of Qi chapters 1-2.
This yoga teacher training counts as 24 hours towards your 500-hour/1000-hour Yoga Medicine® certification. Directly following the yoga teacher training you will be invited to take a short, online quiz to receive your certificate of completion.
