In October 2022 we celebrated Menopause Awareness Month within our community of graduates (and current trainees) with a discussion group led by Petra Coveney.

Petra, the founder of Menopause Yoga, got the conversation started by asking everyone in the group to share about their current age and stage in relation to menopause. She peppered the discussion with key facts about menopause and encouraged reflection about what it means as a yoga teacher to be aware of how menopause may affect our students. Petra shared some ideas about to modify classes and create safe and supportive spaces that are welcoming to students going through the menopause.
