explore Lifestyle approaches for wellness in menopause
Do you remember reading books about puberty being an exciting time, full of the wonder at the changes your body would go through? Or maybe you’ve seen books about the joys of pregnancy and how to stay healthy and navigate it. Menopause is another very natural stage of life, yet until recently, in many cultures, menopause wasn’t talked about very much at all, let alone in a positive light. This has led to the menopausal transition being an extremely difficult and isolating time for many. Hot flushes are not the only symptom; some women experience primarily low mood or brain fog for example.
Menopause means something different to each woman. Your expectations around menopause and the symptoms you feel can be influenced by the experiences of your friends and family or whanau, the beliefs of your culture about what menopause represents and how menopause is talked about in your community.
Te ruahinetanga is Māori for the menopause. Ruahine is said to mean “wise woman” and relates to the granddaughter of the kaitaki (leader) of the Aotea waka.
Our course is enriched by and pays tribute to the wisdoms of the diverse cultural heritage that we have here in Aotearoa
We've created this course for you!
Perimenopause and menopause are being increasingly discussed in the media, on social media and in social circles, which is wonderful. And if you are reading this you are probably well on your way to playing a part in the cultural shift towards a society where women are much more informed and empowered about the menopausal transition!
A note from your course instructors
Our unique approach, aimed at supporting the entire person, rather than focusing on the menopausal symptoms. We combine world-quality medical advice in the form of the best of evidence-based medical information and practical tips from the clinical experience of our team, with strategies taken from high performance coaching and tried-and-true lifestyle approaches.
We’ll talk about what perimenopause and menopause are - and what to expect - how to stay healthy, and how to manage your symptoms. We understand that for many, menopause can coincide with a time of life fraught with demands and pressures on our time and energy, so we will also include approaches to help you manage stress and implement lifestyle adjustments so that you can make this an opportunity to take stock, and feel positive about moving into the next season of life.
This course could even be something you do with your partner; the shared understanding may bring you closer together, and some of the content, for example on libido and intimacy, lifestyle strategies for general health and mindset strategies to thrive in midlife may be helpful for you both.
We are excited to be hosting this course in our new App, to deliver you a learning experience that is convenient, interactive and modern.
You can access the course App via your phone, ipad or computer. We suggest completing 1 module per week and expect this might take around 1 hour per week, however you are free to progress through the modules at your own pace.
