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 course.This course is led either in person or ONLINE by Petra Coveney - the founder of Menopause Yoga and author of 'Menopause Yoga - A Holistic Guide To Supporting Women On Their Menopause Journey,' published in October 2021 by Singing Dragon and available to purchase on Amazon and other bookstores. 

 

"Menopause Yoga is unique in helping women to manage their menopause symptoms and their mindset. My Approach brings western medical science and eastern wellbeing together for the first time. My Mantra is to Educate women, to feel Empowered, so that they can Embrace the menopause as an opportunity for self reflection, better health and wellbeing." (Petra Coveney)

The Teacher Training Course:

This teacher training course is accredited by both the British Wheel of Yoga as a Module and by Yoga Alliance Professionals as a 40-hour further teacher training course. This is the ONLY course in the world to provide this level of accreditation and qualifies you, as a gold standard teacher, to lead group classes and workshops.

 

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.

 

She began running workshops in 2013 and formally launched Menopause Yoga, followed by the Teacher Training course launched in 2019, at Dr Newson's world acclaimed Menopause & Wellbeing Centre in Stratford Upon Avon. in 2020, she teamed up with Yogacampus.com the yoga education charity, to offer online versions of her live course. 

 

There are now over 300 qualified teachers in more than 15 countries all over the world. The first 11 courses were only open to women in a stage of the menopause, however, in 2021, the first course was opened to women teachers who are not personally in a stage of menopause. In September 2021, Petra launched a CPD (Continuing Professional Development) course for male and female qualified yoga teachers, which is recognised by the BWY.

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. As MY teachers you will support women and help guide them towards an awareness of their inner wisdom.

Petra Coveney says:

 

"I created this  unique Menopause Yoga Teacher Training course in response to the requests from women attending my workshops who said they wanted to practice menopause yoga where they lived, but they didn't have any trained teachers nearby. I was overwhelmed by requests from yoga teachers who both wanted to study on this course for their own personal benefit and to share the practice with other women."

 

"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.”
