This online retreat offers women who define themselves as being in the phase of menopause (including preparation for menopause, peri menopause and menopause) a space to honour this profound transition in life.
Society seldom recognizes or honours this life stage as a rite of passage for women. As such women have little support, and even understanding, to navigate the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual changes that occur to their body, relationships and sense of self during this time. As with the menstrual cycle, bringing increased awareness and understanding to this natural process offers us a map which allows us to navigate this profound life phase more easefully and skillfully.
Although each women’s journey is unique the retreat will offer a deeper understanding of some of the physical and emotional experiences that can be part of the menopause landscape, along with practices to help manage some of these.
Drawing from her own depth of experience, Reva will offer insights into the menopause supported by an interweaving of yoga practices including gentle asana, meditation, chanting, mantra and yoga nidra. In addition, there will also be spaces set aside for authentic sharing, exploration and contemplation.
This two-day retreat will offer deep rest, support, spaciousness and nourishment. Participants, where possible, will be encouraged to create a ‘retreat space’ for the weekend including the Saturday evening/ night. Guidance will be offered as to how to facilitate this and thereby drop deeply into the ‘retreat’ experience.
The course will be delivered via zoom and the sessions for both days will be at the following times:
9-10am, 10.30-11.30am, 12-1pm, 2.30-3.30pm and 4-5pm all U.K. times.
All the sessions will be recorded and made available to all participants in both video and audio formats. They are offered as a helpful resource following the day, and also for those who need to miss any of the sessions during the day.
Bookings will close at 5pm the previous day.
