200 HOUR WOMEN’S SELF-CARE TRAINING
MAY 3-30, 2020
THE YOGA BARN
The 200 Hour Women’s Self Care Training includes daily Women’s SelfCare Education, Women’s Yoga and Self-Care Rituals as well as one-on-one sessions from the SelfCare team, internationally renowned guest teachers, a nourishing daily brunch and an unforgettable environment at The Yoga Barn in Ubud, Bali. This unique course is recommended for personal development and professional development — offering international certification through Yoga Alliance and High Vibe Yoga to teach Women’s SelfCare Informed Yoga – with refinements in women’s psychology, physiology, sexuality & spirituality at the 200 Hour level.
~Enjoy a fresh and honest education about women’s sexuality, physicality, psychology and spirituality — including his-tory & her-story of the feminine, sexual anatomy, understanding pleasure and pain, fertility cycle reclamation, honoring and supporting all phases of a woman’s life, leaning into endings; death, dying and darkness, navigating depression and anxiety, the deeper ‘why’ of eating disorders, hidden powers of the female voice, re-wiring love/sex/relationship patterns and busting cultural taboos around the female body.
~Learn an elegant and sensual Yoga that is for a woman’s body and psyche and can be practiced anytime of the month, day or year.
~ Understand the often hidden significance and general precautions necessary when a woman is experiencing any of the following: IUCD in place, a desire to conceive, miscarriage, prolapse, lactation, menopause, postnatal, erratic menstrual cycle, antidepressants and eating disorders.
~Come into alignment with regular pelvic care. I’ve seen over and over again, women healing themselves or improving their conditions of chronic yeast infections, bladder or vaginal infections, menstrual pain, prolapse, birth wounding, low libido, dryness caused by menopause, vulvodynia and painful sex. Move things that are unaligned out of the system with these easy to understand pelvic care practices that remove shame, guilt and fear and boost the female energy body, pleasure and aliveness.
~ Experience deep freedom with Yoga Nidra for women — a potent meditative resource for healing, insight, and empowerment.
~Increase your comfort with discomfort with powerful communication tools that boost self love, confidence, acceptance and empathy. These tools will help you work with and welcome joy, anger, jealousy, sadness, fear, bliss and sexual feelings.
~Polish and develop your healthy boundaries. Learn to feel grounded and stay in your body when saying yes & no to family, lovers, friends and colleagues.
~Learn to sense where the sexual organs are located in the body — and what they are capable of! Understand why women’s emotions, menstruation and energy levels work in cycles and how to work with these cycles.
~Incorporate the the lunar (moon) cycles into your life. For many women this facilitates clear decision making, a deep trust and connection with nature and access to a nature based calendar that reveals when to work, plan and be social and when to reserve energy, retreat and rest.
~Experience and understand the nature of your breath with Connected Breathwork. Open-mouth, conscious and connected breathing naturally releases dimethyltryptamine (DMT) into the brain. This can create expanded emotional awareness, peak experiences of oneness, and spiritual breakthroughs.
~Learn self-care rituals extracted from ancient texts that replenish the female nervous system, harmonize breath patterns, soothe the sexual organs, release old trauma and tension in the body and boost the female psyche. These rituals are respectful of the various cycles in a woman’s life and body which is crucial to female vitality, self-respect and spiritual empowerment.
~Dive into the surprising new science of sexuality and how it relates to Yoga and Classical Tantra. Experience deep relaxation, pleasure, and self love with Tantric yoga practices. These practices move energy by working with chakras, pranayama, asana mudra, bandha, deep relaxation and meditations including yoga nidra, sound meditations, moving meditations and visualisations.
~ Receive a basic education in how to lovingly and skillfully support women through pregnancy, birth preparation, and postnatal recovery — using the most up to date, exciting research and methods available including holistic yoga techniques like Yoga Nidra, restorative yoga postures, mantra, pranayama (breath), asana and nada (sound).
~Gain an honest and simple to understand foundation in Trauma Informed Yoga for women using current brain research and practices using movement, breath, sound and awareness.
~Learn to sense when women may need additional mental physical and emotional support and discover who is available and working in these fields.
~Explore somatic movement exercises and the direct relationship between somatics (the living body) and yoga. Work directly with the nervous system to release chronic muscular tension, relieve chronic pain, and improve posture and movement. Somatic movement is consciously moving the body with the intention of focusing on the internal experience of the movement rather than the external appearance or result of the movement.
~Explore business and wealth as a powerful personal development path. Learn how to shake off the familial, cultural, and ancestral conditioning around women, wealth and business. I’ve seen again and again how transformative it is for women to explore their relationship to wealth and business. And how many shocking self discoveries are made by doing so.
~Experience and learn how to create and guide honest, intimate and inspiring Women’s Circles for your friends, family & community
~Encounter and explore the 10 great wisdom goddesses (Dasha Mahāvidyā) whose behaviors, super powers, challenges and phases can reveal and very much support the inner workings of the female psyche.
~Learn about female magical powers (yoga siddhis); menarche, sexuality, creativity expression, pregnancy/birth/loss, postnatal/healing/lactation/nourishment, peri-menopause, menopause, post-menopause, post-menopause. Siddhis represent the deeper truths of life hidden behind our attachment to the outer form of things.
~Many women say they feel that their throat is blocked. Investigate a surprising history of the female voice and free your own natural voice with powerful vocal practices designed for the female body, mind and spirit.

The women’s self care training made me feel so inspired and alive and full of love for myself and other women. It gave me new insights that totally shifted the way I look at myself and I learned tools to continue this work in my every day life. Some experiences were spiritually very strong, it felt like pure magic and made me feel magical. I am so grateful to have had this experience and to have shared it with a group of wonderful women that I will remember for ever. ~Jenny, Sweden
Emily is one of the most graceful and respectful teachers I have met around the yoga world. I didn’t really know what to expect from the training. I only knew it was the right time for me to do it as I felt a deep curiosity and need to explore more deeply what in the yoga world was there for me as a woman and as a yogini. Emily’s training allowed me to explore what it means nowadays to be a woman for me, how to take care of myself and how to feel more empowered and more in myself. And I really mean it. I had worked with Emily before having done my YTT with her, so I knew that she was going to hold a space where each of us could feel supported and inspired, but this training went even beyond my expectations. It transpired the love Emily puts in what she does, the research and work she has done in the women’s world (never I felt a question went unanswered or left open) and the respect she has for every woman she works for. She helps women to find their magic, it’s just as easy as that! 🙂 ~Elisa, Italy
When I decided to take this journey with Emily , I had no idea what to expect. I have no words to describe how truly empowering this process was . I cannot thank Emily enough , for allowing me to reconnect with myself as a strong powerful woman . I am Beyond excited to share what she has taught me with other women in my life and community . A truly special program , which I cannot recommend highly enough . ~Janie, New Zealand
“I took part of Emily’s Women’s Self Care training in 2017 in India. At first when looking into it I had unsure feelings, whether it is for me and if this is what I am actually looking for. I wasn’t really sure what I was looking for but I felt that I needed something to nurture me on a very deep level. I felt a craving to boost myself; and not only by doing yoga daily and eating healthy food but I wanted some more insight into myself and come out of the training with a new perspective. The training truly did exceed my expectations: partly because I didn’t know what to expect and I went into it like a blank sheet of paper, but also because Emily and other mentors knowledge goes beyond what is taught to us. They gather their knowledge from various different sources combining it to a very rich curriculum. In my honest opinion every woman should experience it. It is a vital training for any woman. We laughed, we cried, we danced, we did yoga, we shared our vulnerable sides and also strengths, we all supported each-other and everything was welcomed. Unexpected things get opened up in this training: and everything happens in a most warm, friendly and healthy environment. The expression “emotional safety” reached a whole new level for me. This training shifted my perspective on myself as a woman and changed my life.” -Anna-Maria
“I had never been to a retreat before and the information about Emily’s course came unexpected, but somehow resonated and touched my heart. It was one of the bests things that ever happened to me! In the beautiful Goa, surrounded by colors and sounds, I learned to see more, feel more and understand more. The course opened places in my mind and heart and made me face my fears and understand my beauty. Day after day, in an atmosphere of safety and trust, we shared experiences and feelings and talked about what women seem to be about. I connected with the Universe, nature, with others, but most importantly with myself. Samata retreat itself was amazing – cheerful, happy and standard is great. I am definitely coming back to continue the journey.” -Magda
“Emily’s Self Care for Women course has been utterly transformational for me. I’m still discovering the full impact of what I learned nine months after the experience. When I first heard about the course, I was at Emily’s women’s circle in Ubud. Something in me leapt, and I knew I had to be there. As the time for the course approached, I started to question that decision. Didn’t I already have a great self-care practice? Did I really need this? Something in me said yes, and I’m glad I listened! The entire time I was there, I felt lovingly enveloped in a community of incredible women. One of the most important things I learned was that entering spaces of pleasurable safety can be a catalyst for immense growth. It was a huge shift for me to see that I could stretch my comfort zone far more easily and joyfully than I thought possible when I felt safe, held, and loved. Most importantly, I learned to listen to myself, trust myself, and feel gratitude for the phenomenal gift it is to be a woman and to be a part of a community of women. Emily has created an incredible offering in this course, and I want every woman I know to experience it!” Cait, USA
