of the Womb
Connect with the power of your cycle
Saturday 15th September, 3:30-5:30pm
Q: Hey Liz! We're so looking forward to your upcoming workshop on Yoga for the Womb tell us a little bit more about you and what you do?
Namaste! I'm really looking forward to being there! I have my own small business, Holistic Health Derbyshire. I teach weekly Vinyasa flow classes and private womb yoga sessions, run workshops and hold women's circles and retreats in the Peak District. I'm also a Mizan Therapist so I see private one to one clients in my home in Cromford to support with their reproductive health.
Q: Tell us a little about the Yoga for the Womb workshop:
The workshop will bring together my two favourite things - Womb Yoga and Mizan Therapy. We'll explore simple and powerful techniques to reconnect joyfully with our naturally arising feminine wisdom. We'll tune into the power of our cyclical wisdom through the art of self-care massage, Yoga asana, pranayama breathing, meditation, chanting and menstrual charting.
Q: The workshop sounds so interesting! What can women hope to gain from the experience?
The aim of the workshop is to provide the tools to restore health and vitality through the power of tuning in to inner wisdom – the inner goddess! Women will learn the art of Mizan self-massage, connecting with their womb space through meditation and pranayama breathing, and a series of easy-to-remember Yoga asanas. Attendees will also be given a template for menstrual charting to take home and use in the coming months. Depending on individual needs, women may also like to take away Yoni steams, castor oil packs, fajas (womb binding), and herbal teas to balance hormones.
Q: What led to you specialising in these areas?
I started practicing yoga in 2007 whilst I was living in South Korea. Then, as with most passions, it was my own 'journey' that led me to become a womb whisperer. A series of health issues led me to two wonderful women - Bushra Finch (Mizan Therapy) and Uma Dinsmore-Tuli (WombYoga). The universe can be a little bit cruel sometimes when it's steering you on the correct path, but I am undoubtedly on it now. Feeling happier and healthier than ever, and totally in tune with my inner wisdom, I feel compelled to spread the womb love .
Q: What do you do when you're not on the yoga mat?
I'm currently training to be a Naturopathic Nutritionist which is taking up loads of my free time, but it's totally fascinating! The human body... just wow! Over the summer I've been spending as much time as possible in the garden... It's a new project. Slugs 1, Liz nil.
Q: What does a day in the life of liz look like?
Pretty much every day begins with some form of yoga and meditation (so as to avoid grumpiness) , has a yoga class at some point, and ends with a massage of my womb. The bits in between totally depend on where I am in my cycle. Sometimes I spend QT with my favourite people - sometimes my time is non-negotiably mine.... I've learned to plan social occasions within the limits of my cyclical capabilities!
Q: What is liz doing in an alternative universe?
I very much hope the same thing!
Q: Sunsets or sunrises?
Both! By the sea preferably.
