My mission – supporting women to get more vitality and to enjoy the best years of their life.
My 5 Pillars of Wellbeing
Using my 5 Pillars of Wellbeing, I’ll support you in understanding and embracing the significant changes going on in your body and your life. You will feel more mentally and physically confident and ready to enjoy the best years of your life.
Good nutrition that balances blood sugar, supports immune function, slows down bone loss, improves liver function and gut health is essential for maintaining good health. As we approach menopause, the changes lead to lower levels and imbalances of our oestrogen and progesterone. This often causes mood swings, hot flushes, vaginal dryness, poor sleep, weight gain around the middle, low energy, and more. Lower hormone levels affect blood sugar balance and reduces our immunity. Lowering bone density makes us more at risk of osteoporosis.
I am a registered Nutritional Therapist, trained at the Institute of Optimum Nutrition. An in-depth discussion of your health, food, lifestyle helps me to assess your nutritional needs. I then plan a bespoke nutrition program. I may recommend further lab testing and supplements, if you agree. Meal planning and regular consultations help to keep you motivated.
Pilates has been shown to increase core strength, flexibility and balance, which helps improve posture and enable better technique and form during strength training. Pilates also strengthens the pelvic floor. Women with better posture and balance feel more confident in their bodies and in the way they look. Pilates also reduces menopausal symptoms. As we get older a combination of decreased flexibility, accelerated loss of muscle and bone density can lead to aches and pains, especially in the back, hips and shoulders.
Because Pilates uses full range movements it is a great way to speed up recovery from more strenuous exercise. As an advanced Pilates teacher I incorporate some Pilates practice into any physical exercise regime with clients.
If you have noticed your breathing is not as easy as it used to be, it could be because your hormones are changing. Research shows women’s breathing is affected by their sex hormones. Conditions such as Sleep Disordered Breathing are more common after menopause, and lung function decline accelerates during menopause.
Slow deep diaphragmatic breathing helps to reduce some menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes. More challenging breathing techniques can increase the delivery of oxygen to your muscles and vital organs, and generally help you feel more energised and alert. As a certified Oxygen Advantage Instructor, I include Oxygen Advantage and Buteyko breathing techniques to help clients sleep better and deal with anxiety and mood swings.
