Yoga and Ayurveda for Menopause: Support for Vata Goddesses

with Kathryn Templeton

Style: Hatha Yoga

Duration: 15 min

Intensity: Low

Props: Blanket, Blocks, Bolster

Class Description

In this blend of tutorial and practice, Kathryn offers an overview of vata dosha qualities, and explains how those with vatic constitutions can support themselves during menopause with asana, pranayama, and relaxation practices. She also provides suggestions for daily practices, such as abhyanga (self-massage), and nourishing dietary tips.

Class begins with alternate nostril breathing (a practice that supports the “rest and digest” aspect of the nervous system), then moves into an asana sequence, which includes kriyas and sun salutations specifically for vata. It winds down with supported paschimottanasana (seated forward bend) for grounding, more breathwork, and a restorative pose designed to stimulate digestion.

Audio and video downloads are available for Digital Members.
