The journey from perimenopause into menopause is a time of change, challenge and transformation. Though we share commonalities, the experience is unique for each woman – affecting different facets of our lives. During this time our physical bodies change, memory shifts, and emotions fluctuate. Jobs and passions are often reconsidered. Women with children witness them growing older, perhaps just entering school or even going off to college. Parents are also aging and may need more care. Each woman’s journey is unique, fluctuating throughout the course of perimenopause and into menopause.

Often our modern world views this time of life as a set of symptoms to be managed. Insomnia, hot flashes, anxiety, sadness, changing menstrual cycles, joint pain, brain fog, or other symptoms, might be part of the experience. While yoga can help us navigate these symptoms, it can also help us understand them within a larger picture. It is a time for deep introspection and growing into our new selves. Questions arise: Who am I? How do I deal with these changes in my body? How do I feel about my past choices? What do I want for myself and the rest of my life? Even though menses may officially end, this transformation continues into menopause.

Please join us as we come together to explore this deeply transformative time. Throughout the series will use yoga movement, breath, chanting, and iRest® Yoga Nidra Meditation to support and celebrate ourselves and each other!
