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"

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

"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
