These classes are suitable for all women and include:

  • Optimising pelvic health including a variety of ways to bring tone as well as release to the pelvic floor muscles and surrounding structures, including abdominal and back muscles

Menopause workshops monthly Saturdays 2-4 pm Swimworks

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.

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. 

Midlife yoga for the menopause: These sessions are open to complete beginners to yoga as well as more experienced yoginis. 

When:

Monthly Saturdays 2-4 pm comprising 90 minute class and time for a drink/chat
