Menopause Workshop

Saturday, October 15

9-10am

$29

Join Chelsea for a 60-min workshop that focuses on education around the menopause transition.

 

Menopause is a natural phase of life, and typically occurs around age 51.  Menopause is a brief moment in time when you have gone 12 months without a period.  Usually it’s the journey leading up to that moment, called pre-menopause, where we start to notice hormonal shifts in our body and symptoms occur.  This period can last anywhere between 4-10 years.

 

The goal of this informational workshop is to empower you to embrace these hormonal changes in your body, and learn ways to live your best.  In this workshop, you will learn:

  • What are these hormonal shifts happening in your body

  • Common menopausal symptoms AND what to do about them

  • Best ways to MOVE your body during this transition (and beyond)

 

There are both in-person (max of 10) and zoom options available to join in this educational workshop.  A recording will be available for up to 7 days following the workshop for those who signed up.

 

**Receive discounts for services booked and purchased on the day of the workshop:
