Ladies Well-Being & Menopause - Collette Fee Gaffney

14 September 2021

This well-being and menopause series of classes will be offered over 6 weeks on Tuesday mornings commencing 14th September.

Each week we will explore the menopause journey in terms of the hormonal changes taking place, roles of the sex hormones, common health concerns, the changing needs of a woman’s body, with regards to exercise, the importance of nutrition and rest.

  • This course aims to support women and is suitable for those that are pre / peri or post-menopausal.  In this course you will learn how to support and nurture your body.  It is suitable for all ladies whether you are taking HRT or adopting a natural approach.  Collette will share advice on dealing with common symptoms such as hot flushes, insomnia, night sweats, anxiety, stress, and urogenital issues including vaginal dryness and discomfort.
  • The course will help remind you of the importance of adapting to the changes taking place in our body and the importance of self-care.
  • Each class will include all aspects of a traditional yoga class including relaxation, poses to assist with strengthening and balancing (you will learn how to adapt the poses to suit your own body to ensure you are safe and still benefit from the practice).  The focus of our poses is designed to promote muscle tone and bone density (including isometric stretches with or without resistance bands) and learn the importance of bone health during our journey.
  • Pelvic floor maintenance is another key area so let’s get to know this part of our body and how you can support it! 
  • We will also explore restorative yoga poses that are very beneficial.  Restorative yoga provides us with the opportunity to slow down in our fast-paced lives.
  • Guided mindfulness & meditation (with elements of cognitive behavioural therapy).
  •  Breathing exercises to assist us especially if we experience hot flushes.
