“Menopause is an ending and a beginning, a time in which a woman deeply examines who she is, what she has done and who she now wants to be.” Alexandra Pope
An uplifting and informative workshop to help you understand the various stages of menopause and find tools to navigate this powerful change. We will explore the physical, emotional and spiritual changes occurring at this time. This workshop will discuss top self-care tips to support you at this time of great change.
The workshop is for all women, especially if you are in peri-menopause, menopause or post-menopause.
“Brilliant, good pace & very informative” ~ TC, Devon
“Thank you for a wonderful workshop and for all the fantastic follow up information. I really appreciate it, as it allows me to continue my learning. Knowledge as they say is power and a better understanding certainly helps you feel more in control of something which though natural, can be confusing and distressing. It was lovely to spend time sharing experiences with such a supportive group of women. A big thank you!!” ~ Menopause Workshop 2019
We will be sharing health and self care tips to aid this powerful transition. The workshop will include an Overview of Menopause, Exploration of the Stages of Menopause, Review of the nature of change and cycles, Yoga, Guided Meditation, Pranayama (Breathwork), Health & Self Care Tips and Nutritional Ideas.
This will be a safe space to explore this topic and get the support of like-minded women. There is a lot to cover in this workshop and we will provide a resource pack to signpost you to further links, research and information.
“Thank you both. The day was really good, could have done with it being a whole weekend!!! There’s so much information about lifestyle to fit in with the menopause. Your information has helped to direct me, to make the changes I need to make, so thank you for that. It was a lovely group, very giving and supportive.” ~ MS, Devon

“The things that women reclaim are often their voice, their values, their imagination, their clairvoyance, their stories, their ancient memories. If we go for the deeper, and the darker, and the less known we will touch the bones.” ~ Clarissa Pinkola Estés
