THE STORY

A women only yoga retreat & deep conversation with our resident Functional Medical doctors on hormonal imbalances,weight gain & infertility.

On this retreat we tackle the big questions on Women’s Hormonal Health and how it affects us all in ways that we are often not even aware. A deep journey of learning about what lies beneath the surface of our bodies supported by yoga classes, relaxation, organic vegan food that cleanses and restores gut health and a roadmap to a healthier you.

We all know we have these things called Hormones, you’ve heard your girlfriends talk about PMS, painful “time of the month”, infertility, weight gain, fatigue but often we never know what causes imbalances, how to manage them and how to heal ourselves until it is too late. In this retreat our resident Functional Medical Doctor Dr Ana Maria Stoica will join us to talk openly about what all of us are going through on subjects like Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), transition pre / post pregnancy, thyroid disorder, sex hormones (estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone) and how you can gain back control of a well balanced hormonal landscape and your health via eating the right foods.

You'll be surrounded by a circle of women who will join you on a powerful journey of self-discovery and healing.

Overview of presentations by Dr Ana Maria Stoica:

  1. Introduction into sex hormones (estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone), PCOS, PMS, fertility, preconception medicine, thyroid dysfunction.
  2. Hormone connection with our psychology. What causes anxiety, depression, lack of energy, poor motivation and fatigue.
  3. Stress Hormones, Adrenal Fatigue and how to keep cortisol levels under control
  4. Lifestyle skills that you can learn and use at home; Lowering levels of toxicity, the importance of sleep, gut health, diet and effective relaxation therapies.
