About The Event
Learn how to safely support women in your yoga classes with this one-day CPD course led by Petra Coveney, founder of Menopause Yoga. It is open to male and female qualified yoga and bodywork teachers.
This course earns 5 CPD points and is recognised by the British Wheel of Yoga.
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 NEW 10-hour 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 they can Embrace the menopause.
This live online course is taught from 10am-5pm. Trainees are required to attend the whole one day session, and answer a menopause quiz before receiving their certificate of attendance in Menopause Awareness.
