My dream for a very long time now has been to create a beautiful offering based around the idea of holistic health & intentional living as we move into both midlife & beyond. An offering that welcomes you just as you are. A place where we feel safe, heard & able to unfurl at our own beautiful pace. Becoming familiar with the cornerstones of health & wellness to create a foundation that is strong, vibrant & joy filled so as we may live our own version of a full & exquisite Midlife...
As we traverse into midlife, many of us will experience an unravelling of sorts. A realisation that things are changing, That we are changing.
Menopause will happen to every single one of us and God willing, we will spend at least a third of our lives in this next phase. It is a time of change, transition and transformation, and whilst for some individuals there will be few, If any symptoms, for the vast majority of us, there is a huge array of symptoms we may experience over the years from vasomotor symptoms (hot flashes & or night sweats, to physical and emotional shifts. We have oestrogen receptors all over our bodies which gives you an indication as to how and why the symptoms of peri/menopause can be so vast and have the potential to affect pretty much every system in our body.
Wether you are experiencing the first whispers that things are a little different, (perhaps your cycle is changing, maybe its your sleep, your mood or energy) or wether you are in the midst of going through frequent hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, debilitating tiredness, emotional shifts...This offering will meet you tenderly where you are and together we will explore the cornerstones of health and wellness that will support you in this next chapter.
I am so pleased to be able to offer you this in person six week course week course at the beautiful studio space at PAUS.

As well as having been teching yoga for the past 14 plus years, I am alos a menopause coach and have recently qualified as a IIN Holistic Health Coach. I can not wait to meet you and share the journey together towards an exquisite, vibrant midlife and beyond.

WE BEGIN WHERE WE ARE..... We begin where we are . Aware and awake to the changes within and around us. We will take a look at the main hormonal shifts that are unfolding during the peri and menopausal transitions and why the effects can be so far reaching for us physically, physiologically, psychologically and
LETS TALK ABOUT STRESS..
It’s a biggie and effects every single one of us and every single facet of our being. In this session, we will begIn to understand the detrimental role stress plays on our bodies and how simple, effective and accessible stress regulation techniques, such as movement, breath, massage and essential oils can assist us in re-calibrating our nervous system so as it is in a place of balance and increased resilience.
THE DELICATE DANCE BETWEEN HORMONES, BRAIN, GUT AND DIGESTIVE HEALTH FOR A LIFE LIVED WELL
Why looking after our Brain, Gut and Digestive health is so incredibly vital for our overall health and wellness not just today but for the years ahead....
UNFURLING INTO MINDFUL MOVEMENT
Living an exquisite midlife is all about having access to a wide and varied toolbox. In this session, we look to movement and how a varied movement palette is so vital for our overall health and wellbeing. With a considered and mindful approach we have the tools literally at our fingertips for warding off Sarcopenia, Osteoporosis and alzheimers as well as increasing levels of fitness and maybe most importantly vitality
REST WEL, SLEEP DEEP
Perhaps one of the most important cornerstones of wellbeing is good quality Sleep. Sleep however can be elusive during these years, the effects of which can feel debilitating on every aspect of our being. But I promise you, there is so much we can do to ease our tired minds and
body toward deep restorative sleep. We look at how we can prepare for a good nights sleep from the moment we wake in the
morning. We take a gentle restorative practice coupled with calming breath work and essential oils to bring our bodies and minds to a place conducive for rest.
FUTURE VISIONING & JOY! It’s interesting to note that many Eastern cultures do not have a direct word for menopause, the closest translation in Japanese is KONENKI, which roughly translates as a period of renewal, bringing with it a renewed sense of purpose, growth and possability. Similarly in Chinese culture, menopause is simply referred to as ‘Second Spring’, viewed as a time of reverence, wisdom and growth.
Now is the time where we can step into our power and into our light, designing how we wish our second spring to look, feel and taste. This is a glorious time to be alive and I am so excited to see where you choose to place your light.
