Peri menopause and menopause is a time where so much is changing in our lives,
mostly lead by our fluctuating hormones that affect us on many levels, from our
moods and emotions, to how we feel physically. The menopause changes us
from the inside out. It can make us feel disconnected from ourselves.
'Yoga for Menopause' can help us to anchor and be present, with patience and
kindness, to how we feel. It creates the space for insight, growth and with that, a
potential for feeling more at ease.
The menopause can be seen aa an opportunity too ‘move into wholeness’ where
we can start to discover a new voice, sense of purpose, create boundaries, stay

awareness. We can begin to be less fearful of the changes and actually start to
feel the power behind the transformation that is happening.
