Supporting you through your menopause

We want to offer our female members support throughout the year, with advice and classes focusing on supporting your body through a time of change

October 14 2021

World Menopause day takes place on 18th of october. we know that the menopause does not affect just one day of the year for many of our customers and so we are dedicated to offering support, resources, classes and programmes for all of the women who use our centres

 

The menopause happens to 50% of the population, but is often spoken about in hushed voices or even ignored. With so many of our members going through the menopause at some point in their lives we want to show our ongoing support. All of our instructors are educated or have lived experience themselves so are here to speak about specific exercises that can benefit your body and your mind in this time of change. 

Bookmark this page and keep coming back, with health professionals, instructors and members all adding content, tips, and videos this page will be updated regularly and will offer real, practical advice, lived stories and class highlights to support you and your body!
