Feedback from Jane & Julia's Perimenopause Training Course

"I thoroughly enjoyed this training. Jane and Julia ran a tight ship, so all content was covered. There were several opportunities to share with the other students, which bonded the group. The extra resources were exceptional, and all were available after the course, as were the tutors. All the students felt very supported and well informed. Thank you xx"

Although this training draws strongly on our own experiences of perimenopause as cis-women we want to create space for trans and non-binary people who experience menopause too, and the experience of cis-men as they go through their own midlife transition.  We welcome all yoga teachers & therapists to our training.
