Survey shows female health concerns
In 2019, a survey of 10,000 Australian women had worrying findings. More than 40 per cent of women said they had been previously diagnosed with anxiety disorder or depression.
In addition, the survey also said that a “concerning” number of all ages had trouble sleeping. Many worried “excessively about different things”.
The study also found the biggest health concerns of women across all ages were:
- period pain
- cardiovascular disease
- breast cancer
- bowel health, and
- painful physical intimacy.
Younger women in the study were also concerned about fertility, and endometriosis.
Clearly, there is much that can be addressed that is of particular concern to women. Issues include both physical and mental well-being.
Flametree’s weekly Women Only yoga classes will address many of these issues. You’ll learn yoga postures, get commentary from the teacher in class, and be able to participate in questions and answers.
There are things you can only comfortably talk about in yoga classes for ladies only.
Many of Flametree’s other regular weekly yoga and breath meditation classes also help with addressing these women’s issues. They also provide additional time for focussed practise of what you’ll learn in these classes for women.
Busy lives lead to exhaustion & frustration
Women live very busy lives. They have multiple roles and often the struggle of family, and work, leads to exhaustion and frustration.
Biologically, women also face specific issues. First, they face the physiological and hormonal changes that occur monthly.
Second, they face changes and challenges with age as they progress to and beyond menopause.
These challenges bring their own set of unique problems and internal conflicts.
Flametree’s Women Only classes also help women find more calm and balance in the way they live. Plus, as discussed, it’s a class as address their specific health concerns for women, via yoga.
Weekly Women Only classes for Beginners & Non-Beginners
Each week, Flametree has two Women Only classes.
These classes will show women how to use asana (yoga postures) and pranayama (breath meditation) to find physical and mental well-being.
In each class there will be women of all different ages. Some will be menstruating regularly, others will be perimenopausal, some menopausal and some will be post-menopausal.
So there will specific poses given to each group. There’ll also be a group of poses that will be able to be practised by the whole group. It will include yoga for period pain.
The main difference between the beginner and non-beginner classes is that the beginner postures will be limited to easy, introductory poses.
