Mastering Midlife for Women

Mastering Midlife for Women

Exercise, Nutrition & Menopause

We all know the benefits of exercise & nutrition for maintaining life-long health but for Midlife Women, hormonal change can sometimes make it difficult to continue with our normal routines. The two big questions are “Why has exercise become so hard” and “Why have I gained weight?”

There is no one answer to this question, the answer lies in figuring out our menopause jigsaw of HRT (optional), specific exercise, specific nutrition and self-care. When all the pieces in the jigsaw join that is where the magic happens, and we get back to feeling like ourselves again.

Irene Clark (Midlife Coaching Professional) will host the 4 hour online workshop Mastering Midlife for Women over 2 evenings. The workshop is ideal for all women from 35+ years, who are wondering how peri-menopause and menopause is affecting them mentally and physically and how making small changes can increase energy levels, improve sleep & mood and decrease weight gain. Cost is €20.

This programme will be available again in Autumn 2024.
