Exercise Advice To Help You Dance Away The Menopause

Make exercise your friend and ease menopausal symptoms. Our experts offer their advice, from gym tips and dancing to the benefits of yoga and even the latest gadgets 

If you’re experiencing menopausal symptoms, it can sometimes feel as if you’ve lost control of your body – and even your mind. “The reason our periods stop is because our bodies become low on oestrogen,” explains gynaecologist Dr Heather Currie, founder of Menopause Matters. “But other consequences of low oestrogen include everything from hot flushes to low mood.”

The good news is there are things you can do to take charge again – and working up a sweat is one of them. While exercise can’t stop the menopause, Dr Currie believes it can help manage some of the symptoms.

RESET in We Heart Living: The Ultimate Summer Retreat

15th June 2016

Constantly juggling work with a busy social calendar can leave you feeling rundown, stressed and exhausted. That’s why we always encourage taking a break every now and then – and if you’re looking for the ultimate summer retreat to help you kick back and unwind, we’ve got you covered.

Summer RESET is a week-long urban retreat brought to you by the wonderful Walthamstow-based yoga studio, East of Eden. This summer, between 24-30 July, they’ll help you supercharge your wellbeing with a bunch of energising classes and workshops taught by Pilates and yoga experts that are sure to help you get your health back on track. Whether it’s yoga, meditation or advice on nutrition you’re after, there’s something for everyone.

We’ve all heard of those exotic yoga retreats located in the most untouched parts of paradise, but Summer RESET could bring that paradise to you. It’s designed to give you the benefits of a retreat away but without the hefty price tag, so you can reach your zen far more accessibly. At only £100 per person, we reckon it’s worth a go.

East of Eden co-founder and yoga teacher Naomi Costantino explains ‘that everything in life works in line with the cycles of nature. The way we practise yoga, look after our body and work with our energy should be no different. More flow and ease can be found when we stay in tune with these seasonal cycles instead of being out of sync with the environment around us.’ That’s why during the retreat, you’ll also have unlimited access to their yoga and Pilates studios for five days – just enough time to wind down and work on your physical, emotional and mental wellbeing.

A five-day nutrition plan created by resident nutritionist, Kate Whitelock, a special gift from Lifebox and a bespoke veg box will also be included.

Summer is supposed to be a time of release, fulfilment and high energy – so make yours just that by reconnecting with your mind and body. What better way to do that by surrounding yourself with like-minded people who are also passionate about their health and wellbeing?

The Culture Trip – 8 London Yoga Studios You Should Know About

East of Eden, Walthamstow

The brand new Walthamstow studio, East of Eden, combines intellectual, cultural and physical rigour, immediately obvious just from the name, which is inspired by the quote from John Steinbeck’s novel of the same title:

‘The free exploring mind of the individual human is the most valuable thing in the world.’

The studio is in a creative hub in the renovated former tram works site down a quaint cobbled alleyway. Inside, the space has been cleverly designed and decorated to induce an inspiring and peaceful oasis through simple touches and artwork.

Evening Standard – Lets go to NoYo

Let’s go to NoYo: why north London is becoming a hotspot for yoga fans.

FIONA ROBERTS – Published: 16 December 2014

Yogic calm is not the first phrase you would associate with Camden — at least not if you have ever tried to fight your way off the Tube on a Saturday. But it has just become the heart of the NoYo scene, now that the much-loved yoga centre Triyoga has moved from its spiritual — and bricks- and-mortar — home in Primrose Hill into a Victorian piano factory five minutes from Camden Lock.
