· Strength based alignment to help you feel empowered, safe and easeful in your practice
· Techniques to find strength in familiar postures as well as some dynamic balancing postures

MENOPAUSE WITH GRACE - £40
With Anneliese Wells and Lorna Driver-Davies
Saturday 9th March, 2-5pm
Nutrition and Yoga to address Stress Relief at Menopause:
Why stress management is an important consideration in menopause and how to feel calmer in your body and mind.
Peri-menopause and menopause can be a time when our experience of stress (physically and mentally) is heightened. Research has shown that common menopausal symptoms may be amplified in women who experience stress. Stress is not always what we think it classically to be. For example, lack of ‘quiet time’, eating poorly or not getting enough sleep can be ‘stressful’ for the body. Overall, in a phase of hormone transition, there is a greater need to take care of ourselves by incorporating stress management techniques into our lives.
Lorna Driver-Davies will be educating on how nutrition, botanicals and lifestyle can support this life stage - physically and mentally. She will be specifically focusing on the effects of stress and how this can increase unwanted symptoms and create other 'after-effects' specific to this hormone-shift life stage. It will be an opportunity to see how you can take steps to make changes to avoid stress and how to cushion the effects when it is sometimes unavoidable.
Anneliese Wells will take you through a balanced Yoga and Mindfulness practice that will bring relief from stress. Whilst strong poses help metabolise stress hormones, gentle poses with deep breathing bring relief from physical tension and allow the body to enter the relaxation response. Mindfulness practices can help women to accept the challenges they face and develop self compassion to better cope with stress.
Yoga and nutrition are the perfect partners. This workshop aims to help you see how you can incorporate a fusion of support into your life, to nurture and rebalance.
