About Menopause Yoga
Petra Coveney - Founder of Menopause Yoga
My name is Petra Coveney and I am the creator of Menopause YogaTM which I have been teaching since 2013. I founded the Menopause Yoga teacher Training course in 2019 at Dr Louise Newson's Menopause & Wellbeing Centre and have trained over 400 teachers worldwide. I run monthly workshops both online and in person, as well as one-day Menopause Awareness courses and classes, and the 5-day TT course which is accredited by the British Wheel of Yoga and Yoga Alliance Professionals. In 2021, my first book was published by Singing Dragon Books titled 'Menopause Yoga - A Holistic Guide To Supporting Women on Their Menopause Journey.'
The book includes a forward by Dr Louise Newson as well as expert articles on nutrition, herbal remedies, vitamin supplements and advice on journaling and self care.
You are in safe hands. I am a fully qualified yoga teacher with 20 years of yoga experience, and I'm a member of the British Menopause Society for health practitioners. I have 500 hours of teacher training, including a 200-hour teaching diploma from the British Wheel of Yoga, a 200-hour diploma from Yoga Alliance and 50-hour certificates from Triyoga - London's leading yoga studio.
I created Menopause Yoga (MY) to share the specially adapted yoga poses, breathing techniques and mindful meditation practices that helped me to positively manage my menopause. After many years researching, reading and training with the world's best teachers, I now lead workshops and one-to-one sessions to share the tried and tested methods that work.
MY aims are to educate and empower women so that they can embrace the changes in their minds, bodies and emotions.
Underpinning MY is a positive philosophy: Menopause is an opportunity to take a pause in your busy life...to Nurture & Nourish yourself...to take time for Self Study and learn more about your changing body, mind and emotions...to look forward to the next stage in your life.
I hope you enjoy MY and enjoy your journey. Petra x
