About The Event

Join Petra Coveney - creator of Menopause Yoga (2013) for this this unique one-day Continuing Professional Development course is for ALL yoga and movement teachers (male, female, non binary, LGBTQ) to raise awareness of the menopause, how symptoms may show up in your classes and how to modify your studio space and teaching practices to support women.

CPD Description All women go through the menopause, usually between the ages of 45-55 but sometimes earlier, which means that there are women in your yoga classes who are experiencing this hormonal transition from fertility to post reproductivity.

The hormone-related symptoms they experience can range from headaches, hot flushes and irritability, anxiety, insomnia and fatigue, lethargy and low mood, joint and muscle pain, digestive issues and weight gain - and many more. Long term health risks include osteopenia and osteoporosis (weakened bones), sarcopenia (muscle loss) and cardio vascular disease. Yoga can significantly help women both manage their symptoms and ease their transition through this natural but often destabilising transition.

You can learn to support women safely in your yoga classes and offer specially modified yoga practices on this CPD course led by Petra Coveney - the founder of Menopause Yoga (2013) and author of a forthcoming book ‘Menopause Yoga – a holistic guide to supporting women on their menopause journey’ to be published by Singing Dragon, in October 2021.

MY combines western medical science with eastern wellbeing to give women a toolkit of techniques to manage their symptoms, and a positive perspective of the menopause as an opportunity for self-growth. Petra’s approach helps educate women to feel empowered, so that they can embrace the menopause.
