Glowing Through Change: A Holistic Approach to Menopause

5 March, 2024 to 10 December, 2024


Are you navigating the intricate path of hormonal fluctuations and the ups and downs of mid-life health challenges?
Did you wake up one day and wonder what the heck happened to your body, monthly cycle, attention span or waistline?
Feeling like you’re not ‘yourself’, or just a general level of ‘meh’ more often than not?
Not sure where to go for information or support when menopause comes knocking on your door?

 

Navigating the hormonal changes associated with the onset of perimenopause and menopause can be confusing, frustrating, and even isolating. For so long, the topic of menopause has been spoken about only in hushed tones (if at all!) and there’s still a huge gap in readily available information, even from healthcare practitioners, who may also be inexperienced in providing the care menopausal women need and deserve.

 

We’ve got you!

We’re here to provide support and guidance to women who are ready to empower themselves and advocate for their own health and wellbeing in mid-life and beyond!

If you’re going through perimenopause or menopause, you might be experiencing any of the following:

  • Poor sleep
  • Hot flushes
  • Night sweats
  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Brain fog / poor memory
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Overwhelm
  • Joint aches and pains
  • Tinnitus
  • Hair loss
  • Irregular and/or heavy periods
  • Low libido
  • Dry itchy skin
  • Dry eyes
  • Digestive problems / constipation
  • Bladder problems / incontinence
  • Heart palpitations
  • Breathing issues / shortness of breath
  • Skin crawling / pins & needles

 

If you’re feeling any of the above, we invite you to embark on a transformational journey with our unique online program, Glowing Through Change.  

Rooted in the timeless wisdom of Ayurveda and Yoga, and backed up with evidence-based scientific information, this program is designed to empower women to embrace this natural transition with grace, resilience and a sense of community.

 

What sets Glowing with Change apart from other Menopause programs?

Holistic Wisdom:

Our program delves into the physical, physiological and psychological changes that occur during the transition through perimenopause and menopause.  Through the lens of Ayurveda and Yoga, we’ll guide you to understand and embrace these changes as a natural part of your life’s journey, with practices and lifestyle enhancements to not only help you find relief, but to move into mid-life and beyond with glowing good health!

Empowerment & Transformation:

If you’re experiencing symptoms like hot flushes, weight gain, brain fog, mood swings, dryness (and more!), Glowing Through Change is your beacon of hope.  Firstly, you’re not alone.  Alongside a supportive community of women, we empower you to not just cope, but to thrive through menopause, turning this life stage into a powerful rite of passage. 

Skills for Thriving:

Learn a comprehensive set of skills to manage the ups and downs of hormonal fluctuations.  From nutrition and exercise to self-care, stress reduction and prioritizing sleep, our program equips you with practical tools for a balanced and fulfilling life.

Your Journey to Wisdom:

Menopause is not an ending, but rather a transition into your wisdom years. With the right mindset, knowledge and support, you will discover how to embrace this phase of life with joy, newfound strength, balance and wisdom.

Evidence-Based Approach:

Although this program is rooted in the healing traditions of Ayurveda and Yoga, it’s not ‘woo-woo’ or ‘new-agey’. It’s informed by the latest scientific research, and each module integrates the best of both worlds - modern scientific insight blended with holistic practices - ensuring a comprehensive approach to your wellbeing.

 

What you’ll gain:

  • An understanding of the many hormonal, physical and psychological changes that are happening to you
  • Skills to upgrade your nutrition, how to maximize the effects of exercise, essential self-care and stress-reduction practices, and ways to prioritize your sleep for better overall health
  • A supportive network in our sacred (virtual) women’s circle
  • Empowerment to navigate your way and thrive through menopause

  

Join Glowing Through Change and step into a life where you not only glow, but radiate the wisdom that comes from embracing change gracefully.

 

How we address common signs of perimenopause and menopause

Weight Gain: 

Our program isn’t about quick fixes. Let’s be honest here: “10-days to lose your menopause belly fat” programs just don’t work!!  Your digestion is moving into a new metabolic phase, so instead we’ll guide you through sustainable nutrition practices (no restrictive diets!) and mindful movement, fostering a healthy relationship with your body and with food, as you navigate changes in metabolism. 

Hot Flushes:  

We incorporate Ayurvedic principles and practices, breathwork and herbal remedies to balance your body’s internal heat, managing the frequency and intensity of hot flushes (or as we like to call them, “solar surges”) .

Brain Fog

Journey into clarity with yoga, meditation and mindfulness techniques, empowering your mind and promoting positive mental health practices during this transitional phase.

Mood Swings: 

You’ll learn the signs and signals of hormonal fluctuations, how they affect our brain and cognition, and how to navigate them while maintaining your sanity! Our sacred women’s circle and virtual community will hold a supportive place to share experiences, foster emotional wellbeing through connection, understanding and collective wisdom. 

Digestive Problems:  

Ayurveda describes menopause as the “Vata” time of life, where the elements of air and ether can wreak havoc on the digestive system, causing dryness, issues with gut motility and constipation.  Learn ways to boost or balance your digestive fire and keep the ‘plumbing’ in good working order!

Fatigue: 

Through Ayurvedic insights, cultivate holistic self-care rituals to restore energy levels, optimize your sleep patterns for overall well being and sustained energy throughout each day.

 


 

Glowing Through Change is your holistic guide to reclaiming balance and radiance.  

 

We not only address the symptoms, but go beneath the surface and delve into some of the root causes, which are often exacerbated by modern lifestyle habits, leading to greater imbalance.

Let Glowing Through Change be your natural and holistic companion to harmonize your body’s instinctively natural rhythms as you navigate the menopause transition. 

 

Empower yourself. Embrace your radiance. Navigate change with grace. Glow through every transformation.

 

Who is the program for?

  • Women who are in their 40’s or early 50’s who are experiencing discomfort, frustration, confusion and upheaval with the onset of symptoms relating to menopause and perimenopause.
  • Women who are in their 50’s and beyond who have perhaps transitioned through menopause and are now considered ‘postmenopausal’. Some women experience symptoms for 10 years or more! It’s never too late to add a holistic focus to your wellbeing routine, even if you’re postmenopausal or currently on HRT.
  • Women in their 30’s or early 40’s who want to understand what lies ahead, be prepared and be in tip-top health with a toolkit of self-care practices for when their ovaries start ‘winding down’ and all the fun begins!
  • Anyone who is experiencing early, medical or surgical menopause.

 

How is the program structured?

Menopause is a major life transition, and it doesn’t happen overnight. By the time you experience your first symptom, your estrogen levels will have been fluctuating for a while, causing a myriad of effects that may continue to intensify as time goes on.  This program is not a ‘quick-fix’ or a “one and done” workshop, which is why we don’t offer it over a short period of days or even weeks.

Glowing Through Change spans ten months, with fortnightly virtual gatherings.  We meet entirely online via Zoom, so all you need is a reliable internet connection and your good self.  Every session will be recorded and available on a dedicated course portal for you to access anytime, for up to a year after the program officially concludes. If you miss a session, you can catch up later.  If you want to review a session, you can do that too! 

Each gathering will be dedicated to learning about a different aspect of holistic ways to manage menopause and perimenopause, with discussions, Q&A’s, practices and lifestyle modifications that you’ll be encouraged to explore between sessions.   

New, healthy habits are formed over time, and these are where the greatest advancements in your health and wellbeing will happen.  You’ll be supported along the way with regular emails sharing valuable information and ideas that you can implement.  A virtual chat group will be your go-to support network to ask for help and share your wins.

Every woman’s experience is different, there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to menopause.  Glowing Through Change will take you on a journey of body, mind and heart, and as you cultivate the courage that it takes to make lasting changes in your life. We’ll be there with you, every step of the way!

Around half the world’s population will experience menopause.  Right now, Gen X women are going through menopause, and we’re lifting the veil, starting conversations in the public space, and changing the narrative on menopause.  We’re destigmatizing mid-life and redefining what it means to be a 50-something woman. My goal with this program is to empower you to embrace this natural transition, move through it with confidence and grace, and call in the incredible woman you are destined to be!
