If you would like to hear more and talk about menopause issues on a face to face basis, you may be interested in some upcoming events.
Diane Danzebrink will be appearing in Cirencester later this month for a “Talking Menopause” session. Join us for an informative, interactive talk on the menopause and its impact on a women’s life and work when Di will be joined by Sarah Davies, Co-Founder of Talking Menopause and Business Manager for www.menopausedoctor.co.uk to discuss:

As women who have experienced menopause systems, we aim to leave no stone unturned and will be talking openly about support and options available to turn your menopause into a positive experience. The Cirencester event is on Feb 24th – tickets can be booked here.
Di will be in Chiswick, London on March 8th to discuss menopause and how it can affect your sex life. She will be joined by Samantha Evans, Sexual Health and Pleasure Expert & co- founder of JODIVINE The agenda for the session will be as follows:
- What is the menopause?

Diane and Sam, both menopausal, are passionate that every woman should be equipped with evidence based information and support to allow her to make the right choices for herself. We understand that every womans experience is unique, in this workshop we aim to help you understand Menopause and empower you with all the information that you need to navigate the menopause maze. A question and answer session will follow the presentation. Ticket price includes refreshments and goody bag. Find out more and book here.
The session is open to all women and yoga teachers/ yoga therapists/ health care practitioners who are seeking to support positive perspectives on experiences of menopause in women’s lives, either for themselves personally, or for their students and clients.
The day counts as continuing professional development (CPD) for teachers who have completed prior trainings with Uma, and can also count towards CPD points for general yoga teachers and teachers/therapists, depending upon the requirements of their professional associations. Health care practitioners, psychotherapists, and coaches with an interest in yoga and menopause are also welcome to attend, provided they have a living interest in and practice of yoga.
The intention of this day is to provide practical experience and good information, to answer questions and provide nourishing practice. Diane will be answering questions and Uma will be sharing yoga practices including total yoga nidra, breath (pranayama), rhythmic and restorative yoga postures (asana), gestures (mudra), and heart-based meditations (yoga nidra) that promote healthy menopause. Supportive sequences of integrated and restorative yoga postures will be taught, and there will be plenty of time for discussion. An overview of common menopausal challenges and opportunities will be discussed in relation to appropriate yogic responses. By the end of the day, participants will have an understanding of the key practical and theoretical yoga responses that are helpful to support the wide variety of experiences of menopause.
