I'm delighted to have been invited as the first guest speaker on the inaugural Modern Menopause event organised by Windrose World Retreats (TM).
I will already be in Bali for my own Menopause Yoga teachers' training retreat in Ubud from June 6th-13th (Book places here), so it will be a joy to stay in this Balinese paradise for the Modern Menopause Retreat, also in Ubud from June 24th to July 1st, 2023. The retreats are open to all women and you don't need to be a stage of the menopause to join us.
Windrose World Retreats is run by two very inspiring women, based in Los Angeles, USA, Diana Phillips and Jan Scott. Modern Menopause is their passion project which includes other inspiring guest speakers:
Amanda Thebe, author of Menopocalypse: How I learned to Thrive During Menopause and How You Can Too! ; Emma Bardwell, nutritionist and author of The Perimenopause Solution; Dr. Shazadi Harper, founder of The Harper Clinic; and Dr. Jenn Salib Huber, nutritionist and naturopath of The Midlife Feast.
Below is some information about the retreat from Diana and Jan.
I hope to see some of you either at my teachers' training retreat or at there Modern Menopause retreat in June - Bali, here we come!!!
