SUPPORT WOMEN’S HEALTH ON WORLD MENOPAUSE AWARENESS DAY 2022
Join Menopause Yoga founder Petra Coveney with our FREE live zoom class, raising funds for The Menopause Charity.
Open to everyone who would benefit from a gentle evening of Yoga – EVERY BODY is welcome, including beginners.
100% of funds raised will go directly to the Menopause Charity, who are doing amazing work in both research and awareness raising.
This year’s theme for International Menopause Awareness Day is Cognition and Mood. Petra will lead us through a 60-minute yoga class carefully designed to ease symptoms of anxiety, overwhelm and insomnia, preparing you for a good night’s rest. So, grab your yoga mat, cushions, blankets, and get cozy for this special stress relieving session – something that we all could all benefit from.
Petra created Menopause Yoga in 2013 – the world’s first menopause specific yoga practice – and now trains other yoga teachers worldwide on her popular course, which is accredited by both the British Wheel of Yoga and Yoga Alliance Professionals. She is the author of a book ‘Menopause Yoga – a holistic guide to supporting women on their menopause journey,’ with a foreword written by Dr Louise Newson. And you can find some of her video classes here.
Both Menopause Yoga and The Menopause Charity share a view that menopause can be embraced as a positive and life-affirming experience for women and those around them, if they have access to evidence-based information and appropriate care and treatment and support. This holistic support can include everything from exercise and nutrition to Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and yoga, of course.
The Menopause Charity says: “We want to create a world where the menopause is understood, and no one needlessly suffers. The funds raised through charity events like this help us to work with women experiencing menopause symptoms, healthcare professionals diagnosing and treating menopause, and employers whose staff may be negatively affected by the menopause. We offer evidence-based information, advice and support, and accredited training.”
While this live event has already taken place, and bookings are closed, if you have found your way here, you may want to check out Petra’s classes here and also you might want to check out our Menopause for Modern Life course – which is available FREE to subscribers and is only £49 if you don’t choose to subscribe to MFML.
We at MFML are big fans of creating community for our subscribers, so this like many of our other live sessions will not be recorded. If you’d like to practise with Petra at a time that suits your life, we have plenty of on demand classes available to you.
