Yoga for over 40s, Macha Yoga, Bray.
At last there’s a surge of conversation in the media about the natural, but sometimes difficult period for a woman in her 40s. We are being heard, and are a generation changing the image of the pre/peri/menopausal woman. She’s not at the end of something! She’s still parenting, working, and values her physical and social life. But at some point, doing all those things begins to feel more difficult…
In this course I will help you learn what you need to support you on the approach to, or during peri/menopause, by teaching you physical practices to bolster your body, techniques for the deep rest you will need, and a connection with your peers, as we strip away confusion, and fear.
Yoga can help you with key physical needs of this time: Bone density; muscle mass; cardio-vascular health; joint mobility, and with easing stress, poor sleep, anxiety, depression and low self-esteem that can be a struggle during this time.
Anyone who feels that she is approaching, or on the journey towards her natural hormonal changes is welcome.
From the age of 35-65, and usually in our 40s, we can expect a change in hormone levels to begin to affect us in different ways. It doesn’t always start with changes to our periods. With over 40 possible traits of peri/menopause, the beginning can be confusing, and sometimes scary. But once you become informed about what’s happening, and how to mind yourself, the journey becomes more natural, acceptable, empowered, and maybe even empowering…
My peri-menopause has given me a deep passion to help you move into, and through this natural phase in your life, feeling capable, informed and supported, so I have set about making it one of my areas of speciality in my teaching.
Key to my mental and emotional health during this time has been conversation and community with other women. So, there will be time for (optional) sharing of your experiences.
