Meet The Teacher
Petra developed Menopause Yoga as a result of going through an early menopause herself after realising there was no single source of medical advice or group support including yoga classes for menopausal women. She is a qualified Yoga Teacher with a 200+ hour British Wheel of Yoga diploma who holds an additional 200+ Yoga Alliance training qualification in Inner Axis for people experiencing stress and anxiety. She also holds a 50 hour diploma in Restorative Yoga trained by Anna Ashby and an extra 50 hours for Tapasaya Hot Yoga, trained by Kirsten Stewart.
Petra was the first yoga teacher to be accepted into the British Menopause Society for medical and health practitioners, and runs workshops with Dr Louise Newson – a leading educator and campaigner for menopause women’s rights. She was the first person to launch the UK’s first professional accredited course to train other teachers to support women going through menopause. She also runs workshops in Menopause Yoga and workshops for people on managing stress, anxiety, insomnia.
The course is accredited by both the British Wheel of Yoga and Yoga Alliance Professionals, the international organisation.
