Are you are feeling anxious, irritable or very up and down? Having problems sleeping? Maybe you’re getting hot flushes or night sweats? Or is it brain fog and poor concentration that’s frustrating you? If you’re aged 40 or more chances are your hormone levels are declining.
From late 30s hormone levels start to change, to begin with you probably won’t notice. But as you enter perimenopause progesterone begins to decline and oestrogen peaks and troughs. These hormonal changes create a myriad of symptoms including migraines, poor sleep, general aches and pains, low libido, bloating, dry skin and just feeling meh with no energy or zest for life.
I can help you manage your symptoms, so your experience of menopause is easier. I’m a certified teacher of Yoga for the Stages of Menopause plus Hormone Yoga Therapy. Each method takes a different approach to managing the symptoms of low hormone levels. Hormone Yoga Therapy can be used to manage other hormonal conditions such as hypothyroidism and Polycystic Ovaries. You can read more about the method here
Yoga for the Stages of Menopause
My Yoga for Menopause events empower and support women in their 40s and 50s as they transition through menopause. Expect a combination of breathwork, yoga poses and lifestyle tips to help target bone and muscle health, improve sleep, aid digestion, increase energy, improve mood and manage stress. These events are small, supportive and free of judgment. They are open to all women who are either in or approaching their menopause years. Suitable for complete beginners, so don’t worry if you haven’t done any yoga before.
