Midlife Yoga & Well Woman Yoga
Midlife Yoga for the menopause and Well Woman Yoga
Menopause workshops monthly Saturdays 1.30-3.30pm
Yoga to support women during the perimenopause, menopause and postmenopause
The menopause is a time of huge transition. It can hold many challenges and, with the right support and approach, can open up new opportunities and new found strength and wellbeing.
Well Woman weekly Mondays 6.30-8pm (from 25th Feb)
Yoga to support women's health including fertility, postnatal recovery, menstrual regulation, preparation for and recovery from surgery, the perimenopause, menopause and postmenopause
I am a tutor for Birthlight Well Woman yoga training (as well as perinatal training) which is recognised as a pioneer in its field in the development of effective practices to promote women's health during all the major transitions in her life.
Yoga works on the whole body as well as the mind, helping to optimise hormonal balance to better adapt to times of change. For example research shows that yoga can help alleviate many menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes and insomnia.
Regular yoga practice can offer many benefits both during times of transition as well as ongoing health and wellbeing:
- Restorative and relaxing practices to soothe the adrenal glands, alleviate tiredness, regulate sleep and help with mood swings
- Strengthening and energising movements to release emotions, retain vitality and optimise bone quality
- Practices to promote flexibility so that mobility is retained as we age
- Grounding, breathing and meditation practices to calm the nervous system, renew energy and find stability and inner strength during change
I am currently offering menopause workshops on a monthly basis. From end February I will also be offering a weekly well woman class which is open to any woman seeking to optimise her health. There will be a particular focus on pelvic health and emotional wellbeing, and can help women with fertility, postnatal recovery, regulation of the menstrual cycle as well as the menopause. Postmenopausal women are also invited to attend.
Birthlight Well Woman classes are taught in circles of women so that each woman is equally welcomed into the group enables a safe and supportive environment to be created.
