Shala opening

It is mid May 2021 and we are opening up the Shala to you for classes for the first time this Year.

It seems crazy doesn’t it. It also feels amazing.

We would like to give our gratitude to everyone that attended our online classes, it was so good (and important to us) to see you every week, keep you motivated, and stay connected. It also keeps a few pennies going in the pot to keep Neil and I in coffee.

We hope that our videos have helped those of you that could not make the zoom classes, or that you may have found peace in a home practice without any external help at all.

If you didn’t manage to practice please don’t worry, other things can become our practice, we have to choose and prioritise. We are living through exceptional circumstances and no one should feel guilt or disappointment in themselves.

You will all be welcome in the Shala, where we open with limited space and classes but hope to build as/if our Country gradually opens up.

You will learn a short, easy Yoga practice and breathing techniques that you can practice at home that may help with symptoms such as anxiety, stress, insomnia, weight gain and lack of confidence, you do not have to be fit or flexible. You can learn Yoga whatever your age, weight or disability, ailment or injury.

The campaign has been instrumental in ensuring that menopause has been added to the new RSE curriculum in secondary education in England and continues to call for this throughout the rest of the U.K. Diane explains why she started the campaign and we hear about her own Surgical menopause experience and ask has anything changed? She updates us on the HRT shortage and why we need to keep talking about menopause to ensure we are the generation that makes the positive changes in education, healthcare and workplace.
