Source Power Yoga: Rivers of Honey in the Land of your Body | DENVER, USA
Saturday 7 October 2017 | 10:30am – 5:30pm
with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli
at Samadhi Center for Yoga, Denver, Colorado
A fully embodied and juicy encounter with empowerment: the practices shared in this workshop enable you to live free and fully awakened to the immense potential of your true nature: to become alive to the source of your being and nourish your heart. Experience the sweet-honeyed flow of serpentine and fluid movements that awaken the entire physical body to the flow of energy (Shakti) and set her free to energize and nourish. There will be accessible, nurturing shakti bandhas to boost vitality. The movements are combined with powerful energizing breaths, deep nurture, poetry, song, sound and meditations that are rooted in the wisdom practices of yoga tantra. You’ll also enjoy settling into the safely held space of a healing Total Yoga Nidra practice and the pure delight of sharing the source of life in community with our circles.

STATEMENT of INCLUSION
A genuine welcome and appropriate support for women considering attending any of our courses from Uma:
"Please know that I warmly welcome all women of all stages of life to my courses. My assistants and I and make every effort to ensure that everyone is genuinely supported and honoured by providing appropriate practices during courses, retreats and workshops.
There is no exclusion from practice or teaching space on account of womanly needs. For example, menstruating women are offered suitable practices to support their bleed time, menopausal woman are given opportunities to rest and/or adjust room temperature as necessary, and pregnant women are provided with the props and time and space they need to be at ease in the learning/retreat environment.
Lactating women are welcome to express milk, and/or to feed their children in comfort in the main class space if they chose, or to be provided with an alternative comfortable and appropriate space to do so. Lactating women will never be asked by myself or any of my assistants to go into the toilets to express milk or feed their babies on my courses, and menstruating, premenstrual or menopausal women will never be excluded from practice because of their current physical or emotional needs.
I walk my talk. I care very passionately indeed about the rights of women to celebrate the experiences of being a woman, including menstruating, navigating the premenstruum, ovulating, being pregnant, menopausal or breastfeeding and expressing milk. I spent three years of my life pregnant, eight years of my life breastfeeding, and seven years as a breastfeeding counsellor, where I saw that disrespectful attitudes towards breastfeeding adversely impacted on women’s confidence and capacity to breastfeed feed their children. As an advocate of conscious menstruality, I also observe that the cyclical fluxes of menstrual and menopausal experiences are neither recognised nor honoured by many yoga teaching approaches ,and this disempowers women by encouraging a disconnection from their naturally arising flow and change at emotional and physical levels.
I observe that in many yoga teaching environments there is an implicit disrespect or exclusion of menstruating, menopausal, premenstrual, pregnant or lactating women simply because their physical and emotional needs are disregarded, or seen to be inconvenient and disruptive to the general flow of teaching. As an antidote to this, I actively welcome the opportunity to met these needs in my courses and workshops as a chance to encounter a deeper and broader range of yoga practice appropriate to all stages of life.
I seek to ensure that on my courses nobody is disrespected or excluded because of their experiences or women’s life stages. Everyone is invited to be comfortable and at ease, knowing that their particular life stage experiences are honoured and welcome."
