Easeful Menopause - Monthly Workshops
Come and learn how yoga can help you to navigate the menopause with confidence.
The approach of the menopause marks a transition in every woman's life. In modern society this is often made more challenging by looking after children and elderly parents combined with continuing work commitments. Both my workshops and day retreats aim to give you the tools to help you manage this transition with more ease and grace.
"Menopause can be a disconcerting experience. Just when you think you have your act together, manage your thoughts, feelings and emotions with more ease... just when you have finally reached a comfortable level of poise and self confidence, menopause causes you to sit up and take nothing for granted. "
- Janine O'Leary Cobb
Each month will cover a different aspect of the menopause. You will learn a blend of therapeutic movements, breathing techniques, meditation and deep relaxation relevant to each monthly theme. You will leave the mini retreat feeling rested, nurtured and empowered to manage your menopause in your own way.
March - Managing mood swings and anger
Anger and rage can often accompany the menopause and these very intense emotions can feel unsettling. This session looks at understanding why this is happening and shows you ways to bring balance and equanimity to your feelings.
April - Yoga and nutrition retreat day
There will be no workshop in April as I am running a whole day retreat themed around an easeful menopause. Find out more here.
May - Introduction to yoga for the menopause (date to be confirmed)
In collaboration with Hot Lotus Wellbeing in Stockport I will be running a introductory workshop on how specific yoga techniques can ease common menopausual symptoms.
Who is it suitable for?
These workshops are perfect for:
- women experiencing menopause who would like to learn holistic strategies to manage their symptoms
- women approaching menopause who would like to find out how they can support this transition
- women of menopausal age who would like time out from their daily routine to nurture and support their own wellbeing
What to expect
The idea of running this mini retreat was to give you space away from the busyness of your daily lives where you have the opportunity to learn, explore and find out what the menopause means to you. It will be a time where you can feel nurtured and relaxed and be receptive to your inner wisdom.
The first part of the afternoon will focus on therapeutic movement to support each session theme. There will then be a short tea break. After this the focus will move towards stillness with the attention on breathwork, meditation and deep relaxation and understanding the role that these play in your health at this time.
You will leave with a toolkit of practical techniques to take home with you and incorporate into your daily life. There will also be a resource pack and videos to support you in this.
