In Western culture, many women find menopause a lonely and difficult time. As well as physical and emotional changes, there are often significant life events happening such as children leaving home or relationships changing. In some cultures, however, this time in a woman’s life is honoured as a transition into wisdom and elderhood. It is time for us to reclaim this tradition.
I will share with you some of the experiences I had during this process, my knowledge of nutrition, yoga and other energy practices, supported by evidence from science, traditional wisdom, sacred texts and enlightened teachers. You are welcome to join me in this safe space where you can relax, be inspired, learn techniques that will help you, ask questions, share your wisdom and experience, and bond with your sisters.
The Change is a series of monthly gatherings celebrating and supporting women before, during and after menopause. Each workshop focuses on a different theme and includes a gentle movement practice, guided breathwork, discussion and delicious vegan snacks!

I’ve spent decades researching and experimenting with a
plant-based diet, always with a view to it being healthy and delicious. I raised two children 100% plant-based and have advised hundreds of people about their diet and lifestyle.
Of course, I advocate a healthy diet the majority of the time, but I understand you’re going to want to enjoy your fries, chocolate and wine too, on occasion (or whatever your naughty pleasures are!). I believe in balance and the most important thing in life is to be happy!
Let me help you get clear on the nutrients you need and how to get them in your diet, and how to balance the carb-loaded treats and couch potato days with healthy, vital eating and an energising lifestyle.
Includes:* analysis of your diet
* advice of nutrients you need to boost, and what foods to get them from
* advice on supplements, where needed
* 2-day diet individual diet plan, to get you on track.
