Petra Coveney created Menopause Yoga in 2011, after many years of research following her own experience of peri and post-menopause in her 40s. She learned first hand the impact that this hormone imbalance can have on a woman’s body, mind and emotions. She was the first yoga teacher to become a member of the British Menopause Society for health practitioners and works with Dr Louise Newson and other menopause specialist doctors, nutritionists, psychologists and complimentary therapists.

 

 

 

 

 

Petra began running workshops in 2011 and formally launched Menopause Yoga in 2013. This was followed by the Menopause Yoga Teacher Training course launched in 2019, at Dr Newson's world acclaimed Menopause & Wellbeing Centre in Stratford Upon Avon, which was accredited by the British Wheel of Yoga and Yoga Alliance Professionals. In 2020, she teamed up with Yogacampus.com the yoga education charity, to offer an online hybrid learning versions of her acclaimed course. 

 

There are now over 500 qualified teachers in more than 40 countries all over the world.

 

 

The Menopause Yoga Approach:

Her ground-breaking training combines modern western medical science and the wisdom of eastern wellbeing, such as Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine.

 

Her unique practice has been honed poverties a decade of working with women in the menopause and includes specially adapted yoga poses, breathing techniques and meditation to help women manage some of their menopause symptoms such as anxiety, overwhelm, brain fog, insomnia, fatigue, hot flushes and irritability, joint and muscle pain. There is also a class for building bone density, muslce strength and heart health to help counter the risks of osteoporosis, sarcopenia muscle loss and cardio vascular disease.

 

It is important to note that yoga can not replace oestrogen in a woman's ovaries, which is the root cause of most menopause symptoms. As a member of the BMS, Petra includes Hormone replacement Therapy in her discussions about menopause management and her courses include a talk by a menopause specialist GP.

The Menopause Journey:

The process of moving through perimenopause to post menopause can take anything from 5-15 years, so this really is a journey. We need to become attuned to the hormonal changes in our bodies, our minds and emotions. This embodied consciousness enables women to  respond to its changing needs, and adapt our yoga practice at each stage.

This empowering training is set within a positive framework that promotes menopause as an opportunity for self growth and insight. 

Petra Coveney says:

 

"The Menopause Yoga approach is to Educate and Empower women to Embrace menopause as an opportunity to rebalance our lives and lifestyles to boost our health and happiness as we transition to this next stage in life.”
