Outline Schedule for the Day
Opening circle, to outline intentions for the day.
There will be discussion on the physiological changes during peri-menopause and we’ll also consider a wider perspective; the emotional, psychological and spiritual shifts related to this phase of life. With this in mind, we’ll explore important pillars for health, and outline some holistic protocols that really work to alleviate symptoms and and bring balance. There will be a strong emphasis on nervous system regulation as a bedrock for whatever lifestyle measures you choose. Each woman is different and therefore will have a unique menopause experience. It’s our intention to provide information, signposting to trusted resources, and create a safe and welcoming space where you can ask questions and feel empowered to focus on the most appropriate lifestyle plan for you personally.
Practice - slow somatic movement & breathing practices to ease tension, incorporating pelvic awareness as gateway into wider wellbeing. (no previous experience needed)

Louise will provide take home written information, and encourages note taking. She will also follow up with any relevant resources to support your ongoing personal practice.
Menopause is a time of great change. Whilst thankfully there is much more information about physiological changes, what’s often missing is a deeper discussion about the emotional, psychological and spiritual shifts. Menopause is a natural life event, as important as menstruation and pregnancy, and is an opportunity to step into greater power, wisdom and creativity. This retreat day will provide time to relax, connect more deeply with your own needs, discuss common challenges, gain practical tools to regulate your nervous system, and instil inspiration to help you journey into the second half of life with greater ease.
Whether you choose to use HRT or not, yoga and related tools enable a deeper connection to our true self (outside of the roles we play in life), which means we have greater agency to decide what we need and why. Women are often faced with increased life challenges in midlife, and coupled with the instability of fluctuating hormones it can feel like we’re on shaky ground. Framing menopause as something to be feared is counter-productive, undermining our psychological and emotional wellbeing. This retreat day will give you space to connect with your intuitive wisdom, build self-trust and help you create a foundation of practical tools for your positive, happy and transformational menopause.
