Moving Mindfully towards Menopause

Saturday 18th July 4.30-6.30pm @ Jiva Health ONLINE 

Moving Mindfully towards Menopause

 

Every woman from her early 40s needs this information!  The average age for menopause (when your periods have stopped for a year) is 50-51 in the UK, but this doesn’t happen overnight!  From your mid 40s your hormone levels start to fluctuate and can cause a number of symptoms, like the classic hot flushes, night sweats and the lesser associated joint pain, brain fog and anxiety.  Did you know that heart disease is the biggest killer of post menopausal women*?  We need to feel confident to keep moving!  And we may need to change up the movement routines and patterns of our 20s and 30s.

In this 2 hour workshop understand the physiological changes that your body goes through during peri-menopause and menopause. Learn knowledge based, sustainable movement practices to help. Nourish those achey joints, but also get the blood pumping, building strength and stamina.

We are getting much better at talking freely about periods and fertility, but the next transformational time of a woman’s life is still brushed aside, laughed about or mentioned in hushed tones.  Let’s be the generation that changes that. Challenge the negative mindset around menopause.  Discover an energetic & nurturing way through.  

  • balance your hormones
  • reduce stress
  • improve sleep
  • maintain strength and bone density
  • look after your heart
  • embrace a positive mindset

It was a very nurturing and explorative workshop.
