Embracing Second Spring: A Yin Yoga + Yoga Nidra for Menopause Class 

Saturday 3rd October 3-4.30pm 2020 – Online via Zoom with A Place to Heal | Donation-based Class

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the third important stage in a woman’s reproductive life is known as ‘Second Spring’ – a renewal of energy and opportunities. In the West this time is known as menopause.

In this 90-minute class especially for women in a stage of menopause you will be guided through a nourishing and gently rejuvenating yin yoga practice to support you in embracing your own ‘Second Spring’ and thriving through menopause and beyond.  In this slow, floor-based practice (with the optional use of props such as blankets, pillows or bolsters), each pose typically lasts for three to five minutes. Our yin yoga practice will prepare us for part two of the workshop – an extended yoga nidra (‘yogic sleep’) practice.

SLEEP + REST: A 4-Week Programme for Better Sleep and Energy during Perimenopause and Menopause

October 2020 – Online via Zoom | 4 weeks of Thursday evenings – 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th October – 7.30-8.30pm

Are hormonal shifts negatively impacting your sleep or leaving you feeling fatigued?

Join me for this 4-week online programme that you can do in your pyjamas!

This closed-group programme, grounded in yoga will provide you with practical tips and practices to help you get to sleep, to enhance the quality of your sleep, navigate night sweats, manage your energy during the daytime, ease fatigue and more. By the end of the programme you will have the tools to put together your own personal Sleep + Rest plan to fit your life.

As a programme participant you will receive bonuses from me to assist you in formulating your own good Sleep + Rest toolkit.

Get your pyjamas, your yoga mat and some pillows and join me for this inaugural Sleep + Rest online programme.

PLEASE NOTE: This programme specifically for women going through a stage of menopause. To respect the confidentiality of everyone attending please do not photograph, record or share information with others. A limited-time replay of the yoga portion (only) of each week’s session will be available if you cannot join live.

I have found and continue to find yoga especially beneficial in navigating my own perimenopause and as an accredited Menopause Yoga teacher I want to share these practices with others also going through this transition.

This October course will be available for the introductory price of £44.44.

Feedback on previous Menopause Yoga events with Paula:

“I felt so relaxed following the workshop – it really did calm the rising irritability and raging pitta that I have been feeling recently.  You delivered the workshop in the calm and friendly way that I really love about your teaching and even though some elements of a yoga practice are often lost via Zoom, I felt totally held by you in the space that you had created for the entirety of the session.  It was a great introduction to how yoga can help us through this often ignored phase of our lives and you made the content accessible to all, no matter their level and experience of yoga. The handout and follow up afterwards with all the people you mentioned, and the links was so thoughtful. I will definitely be investigating some of these more!” – Naomi
