Coffee Pot Philosophy for Menopause?

I set up this space to meet students and clients who want to talk about yoga practice and its impact on our lives. I wonder if it could be a good place to start meeting with women who are perimenopausal, menopausal and post menopausal? I am finding yoga and the yoga sutras incredibly supportive and informative as I embrace perimenopause and would like to share my experience and understanding with others. What I am being told is that women do not talk about this stage of life. Are we making assumptions about one another? When I mention it to a woman, there seems to be no hesitation in sharing her story.

I have considered a weekly yoga class but bringing yoga in as a daily practice is much more empowering. This can be an overwhelming prospect when life is already packed with work, relationships, family and menopause (in all its stages). So I would like to invite you to join me to discuss our relationship with ourselves and with the one of the most powerful changes we will navigate, using yoga to inform, support and empower. A yoga practice has many parts and you do not have to do it all. Finding one practice that you can embrace regularly is the key.

I am going to set up one session at a time. This will give us flexibility to see if it works for us and if it doesn’t, co-create something that does. I have chosen a topic to give us a container and direction for our first get together. I suspect we will meander and go off on tangents which is absolutely allowed!

  • Topic: Stress, regularity and the menopause
  • Time: Monday 30 November @ 7.30 pm for an hour
  • Cost: £10.00 (full rate) / £7.00 (lower rate)
  • What you need:
    • a drink (optional) and comfy chair
    • privacy
    • zoom link (to be supplied)
  • What you don’t need:
    • any prior knowledge

If you want to come to the session but are unable to, there will be a recording available the following week so do still book in and I will send you the recording. I imagine there will be a flow between sessions as some ideas will generate more discussion and reflection than can be fitted into an hour

Coffee Pot Philosophy

Thanks for getting in touch about meeting up online to talk about yoga practice and life. I am going to set up one session at a time and we can decide as a collective when to meet next. I feel we need a container or theme for our hour together and each time I will bring selected ideas from the yoga sutras. Here are the details for our first afternoon:

  • Topic: Citta vrttis and the purpose of yoga
  • Time: Friday 27 November @ 2.00 pm for an hour
  • Cost: £10.00 (full rate) / £7.00 (lower rate)
  • What you need:
    • a drink (optional) and comfy chair
    • zoom link (to be supplied)
  • What would be useful but not essential:
    • a copy of the yoga sutras
  • What you don’t need:
    • any prior knowledge

If you want to come to the session but are unable to, there will be a recording available the following week so do still book in and I will send you the recording. I imagine there will be a flow between sessions as some ideas will generate more discussion and reflection than can be fitted into an hour

Upcoming dates & Coffee Pot Philosophy

A reminder that Yoga Morning Dailies continue every weekday. Our Wednesday term yoga and morning classes have similar themes focusing on the exhale and BK (pause after the exhale) and releasing the muscle chain from the foot to the crown of the head and down to the eyebrows. Practices are containing and nourishing. Groups are friendly and welcoming too! What’s not to love?

Next Monday, there is a reiki share in the morning (1000-1115) and an evening meditation (2000-2045):

I am talking with the regular morning classes about setting up online sessions to talk around yoga philosophy and ideas to support ourselves. I attend a fortnightly chat with my teachers for an hour. It works really well and gives me a space to learn, reflect and ponder. If you cannot make a session I can send you a recording for you to view in your own time. If you are interested in this, let me know the following:

  • which day/s
  • what time: 1000 / 1230 / 1400 / 1530 / 1700

To let me know what you think or to message me about classes/groups: Contact

See you soon!
