8 week mindfulness and relaxation for menopause course

An 8 week course, focusing on using mindfulness and relaxation techniques to help manage the physical and psychological impacts of this life transition. This is NOT a course explaining the physiological stages of menopause, or looking at medical or natural interventions.

This online training is held LIVE on Zoom. You are expected to commit to the whole course. 

What will I get from the course?

1 induction session of 2.5 hours per week  
7 sessions of 2 hours per week   
1 optional half day retreat at the end of the course


Participants are expected to establish a home meditation practice during the course of around 20 minutes a day. Guided meditations, and a course handbook are included to help support you with this. 


This course will allow women to support each other, while also teaching mindfulness techniques which are already proven to help stress, anxiety and low-mood. Instead of being a ‘pure’ mindfulness course, we will also include relaxation techniques specifically aimed at increasing capacity to manage anxiety. It is hoped that these techniques will also help women cope with the impact of the physiological symptoms as well.

Course dates: Tuesday 28th September - 23rd November 2021. No session 26th October. 

Course times: 6.30 - 8.30pm. The first session will be longer, finishing closer to 9pm.

 
The course is free, but we will be inviting those who can afford to do so, to make a donation to Manchester Mind on completion of the course.
