Second Yoga and Nutrition Workshop:
Date 21st February 2018
Location St Emmanuel’s Church NW6
Price: £55 (early bird until 10th January, then £65)
During this workshop we will explore how your thyroid and adrenals support your health from metabolism to energy and your ability to cope with stress. Your adrenals also play a huge role in the production of sexual hormones that regulate your cycle and support fertility and help balance hormones post perimenopause.
Diet plays a fundamental role in supporting your adrenals especially via sugar balance and insulin-cortisol interaction. Your thyroid is closely linked to your sugar balance and adrenal function but those aren’t the only hormones that an unbalanced thyroid can affect, as your oestrogen production can be affected too.
Your yoga practice can also help support your adrenals and thyroid. Through Pranayama and restorative Yoga poses, you can counteract the effects of the ‘stress’ hormones secreted by the adrenal glands. And your Yoga practice can also aid the thyroid regular function by alternately compressing and expanding your throat, flooding the gland with oxygen through inversions and practicing certain breathing techniques.
Our workshops start with a deliciously healthy snack and Nutrition Talk by Pilar Manzanaro, our registered nutritional therapist. The talk will be followed by a yoga session with Paula Lopez De Mollein, our experienced Yoga teacher. To finish our session off we’ll cook a light dinner for you including recipes and ingredients to address hormonal imbalances, support sugar balance and boost your energy with Paula Quest, our nutritional chef.
Please contact Pilar or Paula with any questions.
We will follow up with fortnightly Nutrition and Yoga emails including practice videos to keep you going until our next session!
