Live Online Class
3-4.30pm BST

with Anita Goa 

October is Menopause month, and Monday 18th is World Menopause day.

This 'live' online class is on Sunday Oct 17th 2021 and we'll celebrate menopause.

It's a free Goa Flow; Yoga for Menopause class that speaks to, and is adapted for the main symptoms shared in the meme above.

Menopause is a natural phase of life. It is nothing to be ashamed of. Even though it can be a challenging time; it can also be an empowering time.

Even if you don't have any symptoms we'll talk about the benefits of yoga for the transition to menopause (peri menopause) and beyond (post menopause). And how you can adjust your yoga practice for this phase of life.

Goa Flow; Yoga for Menopause can be like a supportive friend that cheers you on. The practice is powerful and supportive for all yoga practitioner levels, even if you are new to yoga.

We believe: when we eMbrace this phase of our life we can eMerge feeling more eMpowered than ever in our life.
Anita looks forward to celebrating the power of menopause and mid-life together.

The peri-menopause symptoms wrecked havoc, not only on my mind, body and spirit, but also my yoga practice

Little did i know that the peri-menopause symptoms would wreck such havoc on my body, mind, spirit and yoga practice. But it did.

Over a period of 6 years I experienced 14 symptoms. Even as a yoga/fitness teacher, I didn't know all the peri/menopause symptoms and how important it would be to adapt my yoga practice to the symptoms. I did what i was used to doing; push through it. In this case "it" was the symptoms. Pushing through it left me feeling worse.  

Since that didn't work, i started to pay more attention to how i was feeling. Some days i had energy to flow, other days i could barely get out of bed and needed to stay in the ebb by either practicing yin or restorative yoga. I also became a qualified Menopause Yoga© teacher to learn more.

With more knowledge i came to trust the process and started to ebb and flow with my mood and symptoms. It worked so much better!.

Of course with 20/20 hindsight it makes complete sense that the hormonal fluctuations during peri/menopause might require a different approach to our yoga practice in order to find better balance.

I wish i had known, but i hope that what i learned the hard way can be of help to any woman wanting to get the most out of her yoga practice during the transition to menopause.  
I hear you. I see you. I am you.
