The M word terrorizes many and these years are approached with media-driven dread. Let’s demystify this with an exploration. Every woman has a unique experience and there is so much we can do to navigate these times.

As a yoga teacher I love sharing breaths and short meditations, for aspects of the menopause that can prove tricky for some such as anxiety, overheating, sleeplessness and even the dreaded desire to over-eat.
Kundalini yoga teachers gather tools and tips from movement to food to eat and this is what I will share if you join me on our special Menopause awareness session as part of October 2021 Menopause awareness month.
Kimberley will serve the most delicious and nutritionally supportive brunch for us.
Please join us on Sunday 31st October 2021 from 10am to 1pm and let’s support each other sharing wisdom, laughter connection, and experience.
