Menopause Yoga Teacher Training

We are delighted to announce that Petra Coveney, founder of Menopause Yoga, is hosting her inaugural teacher training here in Belfast!

Menopause Yoga NI Jackie Sharkey invited Petra and chose Maitri Studio to facilitate the first time the course has been available in Ireland north or south. This will be a 4-day teacher training course Wed 13-Sat 16th January 2021.

We require 10 people for the course to run, but may add numbers if social distancing permits and so will operate a waiting list.

This course is open to yoga teachers who already hold a 200hr training certificate. The course presumes a knowledge of Hatha yoga terminology, anatomy and physiology, and the basic Hatha pranayama breathing techniques taught on 200 hour courses. This course also includes yin and restorative yoga poses and some Qi Gong breath and movement techniques. However, you are NOT expected to know these styles before the course.

It is also ONLY for yoga teachers who are also personally in a stage of menopause from perimenopause to post menopause*.

The price is £430 for the 4-day course in person - please book online here.

Trainees benefit from seeing Menopause Yoga in action so there is an additional requirement for attendees to to attend an online day workshop (£55) or classes (£10 each) with Petra. You need to contact Petra directly to book those.

As you can imagine, we are working with the uncertainties of coronavirus and related government guidance. We intend for this to be in person but can run online if there are last minute government changes. You can request a full refund if covid circumstances change up to two weeks prior to the event taking place. Thereafter you will be offered an online course replacement or a deferred in person course.

The course will be followed by a one-day Menopause Yoga workshop opened to non-teaching students on Sunday 17th January. Some trainees may wish to attend and observe.

*Please note: do not apply if you do not meet this criteria. This is because this specific course includes Women’s Circle group discussion of personal symptoms and experiences and it would not be fair for non-menopausal teachers to simply observe the others. However, Petra is starting a NEW Menopause Yoga 40 Hour TT course for teachers who are NOT in menopause. This course is being run during December 2020 and feedback from the initial course will be used to offer the course to others in 2021.
