Menopause Yoga Teacher Training

2020 - 2021

Learn how to support women going through perimenopause, menopause and post-menopause on the UK's first Menopause Yoga & Wellbeing Teacher Training Module.

This teacher training course 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 in 2011 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. She began running workshops in 2013 and formally launched Menopause Yoga™  in 2016, followed by Teacher Training courses launched in 2019.

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 menopause specialist doctors. She has worked with Dr Louise Newson and GPs at Newson Health Menopause & Wellbeing Centre - in Stratford Upon Avon, and with Dr Shahzadi Harper in her Harley Street menopause clinic, in London.
