Yoga can be a powerful tool for easing the symptoms of the menopause and my new group and 121 menopause classes offer support to women who are going through this transition.

Of course, every woman’s experience of the menopause is unique but, despite the differences, all women will have one thing in common - the need to navigate the changes it brings.

A regular Yoga practice can be a powerful tool for this and because of its versatility can support women in many different ways, including:

Specific Yoga sequences to prepare for and manage menopausal symptoms such as insomnia, fatigue, depression and low self-esteem;

Breathing techniques to help to alleviate hot flushes, anxiety and mood swings;

Relaxation techniques to cope with fatigue and sleeplessness;

Ayurvedic diet and lifestyle advice to help manage common symptoms such as dry hair and skin;

Simple self-care practices that you can do at home; and

Ayurvedic diet and lifestyle advice to help address symptoms such as dry hair and dry skin.
