Feedback from yoga teachers who've attended Jane & Julia's Perimenopause & Menopause Training:

"I thoroughly enjoyed this course, not only from an educational perspective but a personal level. It has left me feeling empowered and inspired to help others on their journey through perimenopause."

Natasha Whelan, Attendee, Perimenopause Training, May-June 2022

"The perimenopause training has been very inspiring, very well thought by Julia and Jane with a balanced amount of theory and practice and a huge amount of inspirational extra material available to us forever . I highly recommend this training to Yoga teachers and therapists looking for new integrative and inspirational tools to support women in the stage of perimenopause and women in general through the beauty and the challenges of being themselves in daily life."

Gaia Ceccarelli, Attendee, Perimenopause Training, May-June 2022

"The course exceeded my expectations! It provided theory, different models of the perimenopause and beyond, movement and breath practices, poetry and different readings and articles related to Peri-menopause and Menopause . As participants we shared our ideas through the discussion forum, sharings and practices in the sessions which was also hugely valuable. Jane and Julia led the group with sensitivity and enthusiasm, allowing there to be space for our contributions. Thank you so much."Rebecca Paterson, Attendee Perimenopause Training, Oct-Nov 2021

"A superbly well put together training course with the perfect balance of practice, theory and group conversation. Way and above exceeded my expectations and has offered me a radically different way to view my own experience of the perimenopause and as a result, a different lens to offer to those that I work with.  I really apprecaited being able to attend a weekly class, that was just a huge bonus that I found so nourishing and supportive. To receive the practice, to step out of the head of the student and to be nourished and cared for in that way, for me was profoundly transformative. It allowed the content to land in a way that no one has ever managed to date. Seeing my self care as being a seasonal process is life changing, I knew this of course, and had been taught it before, but somehow it did not land in a way that I felt able to embody it.
Charlotte Douglas, Attendee Perimenopause Training, Oct-Nov 2021

Feedback from Jane & Julia's Perimenopause Training Course

"I have really enjoyed the peri-menopause teacher training. It was well presented and was full to the brim of knowledge and practices that I can use myself in the coming years and I look forward to being able to share with other women in my community. I liked the mix of styles that Jane and Julia both brought. ...Janes's Embodied Yoga Principles background brought a totally fresh element to the learning for me. It has been great - thank you."

Vicki Greer, Attendee, Perimenopause Training Jan/Feb 2022
