Are you going through peri or post menopause? Do you know someone who is? Do you teach women who are going through this time in their lives?

Are you struggling, finding it liberating, or both? Do you feel exhausted, are you going through hot flushes, headaches, feeling that your emotions are very up and down, finding it hard to sleep or any other symptoms?

Menopause is often hidden, not talked about - there has been a lack of information available with even GP’s not trained in this area even though half the population will go through it.

Things are changing and women are beginning to be able to have more open conversations about the many symptoms they experience. This can help us to understand what is going on in our bodies, access information and help each other.

Catrin is a yoga teacher and artist who, after having a difficult experience of early menopause herself sought advice and help. Catrin went on to travel England talking to other women going through similar experiences and created a photographic exhibition celebrating women going through the menopause.

She now feels passionately about sharing some of the information and knowledge that helped her and the other women she spoke to. She believes in starting conversations between women and allowing these conversations to grow so that women do not feel isolated, uninformed, fearful and alone but instead feel empowered, supported and listened to during this journey in their lives with tools to help them transition into a new and often liberating phase in their lives.

In this workshop we will look at how yoga can help us to connect inwards and look after ourselves. We will talk, share experiences, practical tools, and practice some cooling yin, relaxing restorative and yoga nidra. There will be time for tea and more chatting afterwards.
