Join us starting in October through November 11th in a community reading and discussion of the informative and excellent book on women's health, Balance Your Hormones, Balance Your Life, by Dr. Claudia Welch, MSOM. We will have a combined book discussion/workshop on Sunday, November 11 from 12-2pm to talk about the book, and Michelle will give students instruction and demonstration of some of the daily Ayurvedic and pranayama techniques Dr. Welch describes, finishing with a highly relaxing Yoga Nidra session to close.
This book is a follow-up to our AYN October Fall Ayurvedic Cleanse* and offers vital information on what constitutes our overall health and wellbeing, and how to create consistent habits that will help us sustain optimum stress levels - and ultimately hormonal balance, a key factor in our overall health and wellbeing.
The entirety of the book is highly informative regardless of age or gender; men can learn a great deal about their own health and/or the health of their partners by reading this book, too.
Copies of the book will be available in the studio by October 4, and may be sold separately or as part of the Book Club workshop on 11/11.
Included in the Sunday book discussion and workshop:
-a copy of the book
-group book discussion/Q&A
-how and when to do daily oil massage (abhyanga) plus the best oil(s) for your body/time of year
-how and why to do dry brushing
