Menopause Yoga Teacher Training 2020
Learn how to support women going through perimenopause, menopause and post menopause on the UK's first Menopause Yoga & Wellbeing Teacher Training Module.
This three-day intensive training is accredited by both the British Wheel of Yoga as a NEW Weekend Teacher Training, and by Yoga Alliance as a 40 hour training module.
Petra Coveney created Menopause Yoga© after many years of research following her own experience of peri and post menopause in her 40s, and the impact that this hormone imbalance can have on a woman’s body, mind and emotions.
Her ground-breaking training combines knowledge from both eastern and western traditions, medical science and complementary therapies and include specially adapted yoga poses, breathing techniques, ayurveda and meditation. It also includes Cognitive Behaviour Therapy techniques that the British Menopause Society and Women's Health Concern say are effective in alleviating menopause symptoms such as hot flushes, anxiety and panic attacks.
Petra is the first yoga teacher to become a member of the British Menopause Society (BMS) for medical and health practitioners and works with Dr Louise Newson at her ground-breaking menopause clinic – Newson Health - in Stratford Upon Avon.

Petra Coveney says:
"I created this Teacher Training module in response to the requests from women attending my workshops who said they wanted to practice menopause yoga where they lived, and teacher who said they wanted training to teach MY.
"This module aims to train more teachers to support more women across the UK who can benefit from the MY approach and content.
"My method is to Educate and Empower women to Embrace menopause as an opportunity to take a pause for self-study and learn what our changing body needs as we transition to this next stage in life.”
