(MY) Menopause Yoga™️

(MY) Menopause Yoga is especially designed for women going through the stages of menopause to manage the array of symptoms experienced during this transitional time. Menopause Yoga offers both a therapeutic and empowering approach to managing the physical, mental, and emotional ups and downs in peri-menopause, menopause, and post menopause. Menopause Yoga (MY) workshops and classes offer helpful information and tips about:

  • Natural remedies
  • Ayurveda
  • Nutrition
  • Hormone Replacement Therapy
  • Self-Care

MY has been created after years of research by fully qualified and experienced yoga teacher Petra Coveney who is also a member of the British Menopause Society. Her Menopause Yoga Teacher Training programme, of which Shannon Hines-Clark is a proud graduate, has been accredited by both the British Wheel of Yoga (BWY) and Yoga Alliance (YA). MY has been developed with the support of Dr Louise Newson, recognised as one of the UK’s leading menopause experts. 

Shannon is currently running monthly Menopause Yoga workshops. These workshops allow women to come together in a safe, nurturing, supported space to talk about about how the menopause is affecting them, whilst also providing a variety of tools for your toolkit to manage symptoms. Women at any stage in the menopause are welcome.

Each month will have a different focus on specific symptoms. Workshops include:

  • Themed yoga practices
  • Themed breathwork
  • Women’s circle discussion
  • Meditation
  • Journalling
  • Light refreshments and healthy snacks during our break.

The yoga practice, and all the practices shared in this workshop, are accessible to all women. You do not need any previous experience. Whether you are managing peri-menopause or post-menopausal symptoms, yoga can help you cope, find relief, and navigate the transition into your “Second Spring” in a positive way.

New courses and workshop dates coming soon!

Restoration and Relaxation- Monthly Restorative Yoga Evenings

Restorative Yoga can be a valuable tool for self-care, especially in challenging times. Restorative yoga helps to regulate the stress response and rebalance the nervous system, enhancing our capacity to heal.

The practice will not focus on stretching or strengthening, but on yielding and releasing; finding stillness and connecting to breath. You will be guided through simple breathing techniques, a combination of Yin and Restorative poses with each posture being held quietly for several minutes. In the Restorative poses we will use props to support the body allowing deeper relaxation. The practice is designed to leave you feeling nourished, restored and transformed; and is for anyone who has a hard time slowing down, who experiences insomnia, who struggles with anxiety, or anyone who just wants an evening to relax and restore. Each month will bring with it a different theme for the practice.

My Restorative Yoga evenings are being held monthly in the Energise Fitness Studio at Southcote Proactive Healthcare, Maidstone, Kent. Evenings run on a Friday from 7pm-9pm. The next restorative evenings will be held on the following dates:

New dates TBC soon!

Join me for a celebration of Light, transition, and new beginnings.

A Yoga Mala is an age-old movement meditation that unites body, breath & mind through the practice of 108 Sun Salutations.

The practice will take approximately 2 hours. All levels are welcome, but some prior experience with Vinyasa yoga would be helpful.

Success! You're on the list.
