Creativity, Sexuality and the Cycles of our Lives | CHICAGO, USA

Sunday 15 October 2017 | 9:30am – 5pm (Lunch break 12pm – 2pm)

with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli

at Yogaview Chicago, 2211 N. Elston Ave, Suite 200 (entrance is off of Webster), Chicago, Illinois, 60614, USA


This is the first opportunity in the Americas for women of all ages and all levels of yoga experience to enjoy the teachings presented in Uma’s radical book, Yoni Shakti.

What is the relationship between creativity, sexuality and the cycles of our lives?
How does energy move, as creative and sexual expression, and how does she get blocked?
This experiential workshop is to provide practical experience of yoga that promotes healthy creative and sexual energies. There will be an introduction to the Great Wisdom Goddesses Kamalatmika (the lotus goddess of delight) and Matangi (the wild creative poet). An overview of common creative and sexual challenges and opportunities will be discussed in relation to appropriate yogic responses to support the expression of women’s creativity and sexuality.

 “Womb Yoga brings us home to ourselves as women. To honor the natural cycles of our womb life is to dance in time with the cosmic rhythms of the universe.”  Uma Dinsmore-Tuli

This workshop is for women only, of all ages and levels of yoga experience. Pregnant women and babes in arms are warmly welcome. Health care practitioners with an interest in women’s health are also welcome provided they have a living interest in and practice of yoga. 

It is recommended to attend for both Saturday and Sunday as the content is structured as a coherent workshop series. Alternatively, you can attend on Saturday or Sunday as the content for each day can stand alone.
