Female Health Yoga Teacher Training | Online


Training Description

Female health is an area that often gets brushed over in yoga with a few poses often featured as cure alls. This intricate system of yoga can have a powerful effect on supporting hormonal balance and fertility when approached from an individualized perspective with the phases of the cycle in mind.

This 25-hour online yoga training examines the physiology of the female reproductive cycle from both a Western and Chinese medicine perspective. In this course we’ll dig into specifics on how to individualize the practice to support a variety of different female reproductive and hormonal issues as well as look at how to adjust the practice for different phases of the cycle.

We’ll decode specific strategies to support females trying to get pregnant including specifics on working with females using IVF and strategies to help prevent miscarriages; we’ll also briefly talk on male infertility. We’ll also look at the most common female reproductive issues including: polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, fibroids, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), dysmenorrhea (painful periods), amenorrhea (absence of periods) and menopause.

In-line with the current educational industry standards under COVID-19, this training is being offered in an online format.

Yoga Teacher

“I took this course just before starting IVF treatment, and with a history of chronic illness, miscarriage and secondary infertility. It helped to give me the tools and confidence to take back control of my body and become more knowledgeable about menstrual cycle and various associated health issues, because of the in-depth and expert knowledge provided by Tiffany. The variety in asana practices, pranayama and acupressure meant I could do even a little bit on my lowest days and feel better about myself and the process I was going through. My stress levels were lowered and I felt in control throughout. I now feel empowered to share this knowledge with my current and future students, and hope to empower females about their own health!”
