Over 4 Wednesdays in February we offer you deep learning, community, and supports for your changing body.
Live and interactive on Zoom 7-9.15pm Irish time (1pm CST)
Niamh and Petra reunite to bring you their sought-after workshop to ease your journey through the years of perimenopause, menopause and beyond. But this time we are offering you more.
“I was blown away by the mini-retreat for menopause.” Michelle Davis, Dublin
In the first session we will offer you a comprehensive physiological overview of the peri-menopausal phase that will help you understand the changes your body may be experiencing. Over subsequent weeks we will be exploring exercise, yoga and nutrition approaches to support you through these changes, with each week building on the previous weeks’ learnings.
Over the weeks we will address such issues as:
- bone density
- muscle mass and tone
- heart and brain health
- weight changes
- low energy
- low mood
- joint pain
Here are some improvements you may experience:
Better sleep. Less exhaustion. More energy.
Greater strength. Less joint pain. More flexibility.
Greater mobility. Less physical discomforts. More pleasure.
Greater self-esteem. Less anxiety. More hope.
Greater self acceptance. Less alone. More community.
Greater understanding. Less fear. More themselves.
Each evening Petra will begin with a nutrition session, exploring different aspects of nutrition in relation to perimenopausal health including the role of our relationship with food. Petra is a nutritional therapist (BSc Hons DipNT mNTOI) working in the areas of both women’s health and family health. With each session she will offer supportive practical nutrition information with food examples and recipe ideas, whilst also discussing the role of how we feel about our food choices and eating habits, on our well being.
The second part will be with Niamh. Her approach is not only for yoga lovers, and you can easily incorporate what she offers into your own exercise habits.
Yoga for menopause is not about shapes, but about finding ways to reduce stress, aid with sleep, and be more comfortable and strong in your body, while ensuring that your efforts don’t unwittingly do more harm than good. There are lots of ways Niamh will help you apply this understanding to you preferred go-to exercise.
After your time with us, comforted by a greater understanding, and with a clearer head and heart, you may find it easier to see where you can adapt your lifestyle, diet and perspective. These adaptations may help ease the symptoms and concerns that are common but not insignificant during this time.
Yoga and nutritional handouts will be included with some practices to support your physical, mental and emotional concerns, along with some recipes and nutritional information.
4 weeks €80
3 weeks €70
2 weeks €55
Week 1 only €30
Please note: Because of the supportive atmosphere of the sessions, it is NOT possible to attend only week 2, 3 or 4. If you want to attend any of the 3 later weeks, you MUST also attend week 1 on February 3rd when we will be getting to know one another.
If you have a date that you can’t attend, but would like to do all 4, we can record a session and send it to you, but only if you have attended the first session.
