Menopause yoga classes are exclusively for women. Joining together in a small group, we will explore different themes from week to week to consider the myriad of ways that menopause can affect a woman. Whilst menopause is often viewed as a taboo subject, these classes will give women an opportunity to discuss their experiences in a nurturing and supportive environment. 

We will use a variety of yogic techniques including hatha, yin and restorative to equip ourselves with skills to help ride the rollercoaster that can be menopause. Breathing techniques are hugely important in menopause yoga, and we cover a variety in class to help women deal with different symptoms.  Every class finishes with a lovely, soothing relaxation to ease the body, mind and emotions.

Women of any age are welcome to join the class if they feel they have menopausal symptoms, so feel free to come along whether you're 20 or 100. All that's needed is a willingness to participate in whichever way suits you.  The classes are suitable for beginners, and any woman with an interest in optimising her health and wellbeing in the post-menopausal years.

We will cover a variety of topics from week to week, including the many menopause symptoms and consider ways that yoga might help ease these symptoms.  We will also consider how yoga can help protect and enhance our health during the aging process.

We will also consider other aspects of menopause, including lifestyle, nutrition and medication.

Please bring your yoga mat, block, belt, 2 cushions and 2 pillows.

In October 2019 Kate attended the Sacred Feminine yoga retreat at the Yoga Mandala Ashram with Reva.  It was clear during the weekend how much of a need and desire there is for women to share their experiences, and learn from one another.  A group of women spending time together can be an incredibly empowering and nurturing experience.

Kate aims to provide these opportunities to the women of north west England, but also further afield through Zoom.


In September 2020 Kate completed her Menopause Yoga teacher training with Petra Coveney, which covered the ways in which yoga can help women in this stage of life, moving from peri-menopause, menopause and post-menopause.  Kate has also joined classes with Uma Dinsmore Tuli during lockdown for additional teaching inspiration.  

In January 2021 Kate joined the Birthlight Yoga for Menopause short course with Francoise Freedman and Belinda Stapledon.  This course was quite different from the MY course, and the two courses complement one another very well.

In April 2022, Kate is attending the Well Woman Yoga Teacher Training course with Francoise Freedman from Birthlight - this was supposed to be in October 2020, but has been postponed. 

Kate is really enjoying running these specialist classes to support women, covering topics such as bone strength, heart health, hormone balance, nutrition, hot flushes, insomnia and pelvic floor health amongst others.  

If you're interested in any of these events and classes, please get in touch with Kate.

"I just wanted to say thanks for a lovely session last night !

I thought the session was well planned with a really good balance of informative vs practical - nothing too heavy or difficult just a perfect way to spend some "me " time.

Would certainly be interested in any future sessions and like the elements of positive thinking that come into this."

"Thanks - I slept like a baby last night" (following the sleep class)

"Thank you for the class last night. Thoroughly enjoyed it, as my deep sleep snoring demonstrated :-), so sorry, I just get so comfy. Next week I will go next to XXXX so she can throw something at me if I get too relaxed."
