Hot Flashes? Foggy Mind? Insomnia? Mood Swings? If you are experiencing the signs of peri-menopause or menopause and would like to learn more about how to feel better with practices like yoga and meditation, than this workshop is for you!
The workshop will start with discussion on how to embrace the physical and emotional changes that occur as we move past our 40’s and how to flow into your 50’s and beyond with grace, ease, and joy. Using inspirational asana, pranayama, restorative yoga, mudras, and meditation, this session is designed specifically for women who are approaching or have already experienced menopause.
