Unique online yoga platform offers lifeline for menopausal women

MIAMI, March 29, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — A unique online platform, My Yoga Journey, has been launched by Yourself Yoga for Menopause to provide yoga exclusively for women in menopause who prefer a natural solution to help alleviate their symptoms.

Founded by menopause yoga expert, Julie Ann Garrido, who is one of only 600 yoga teachers worldwide with specialist menopause yoga accreditation, My Yoga Journey, offers a lifeline to menopausal women who are looking to practice yoga for menopause, but are unable to access classes locally.

In addition to yoga classes that are categorized according to menopause symptoms My Yoga Journey, which is available via an App, sets itself apart with its unique 7-stage Journey. Incorporating guided practice calendars, tutorials for key yoga poses, and a menopause symptom tracker, this simple yet structured journeyhelps women to navigate menopause yoga and at the same time alleviate their symptoms too.

The success of My Yoga Journey is nothing short of astonishing. As well as introducing menopause yoga to countless women worldwide who have significantly improved their symptomsit has helped many transform lives as a result of their new-found confidence and energy.

Julie Ann Garrido explains: Menopause Yoga is probably one of the worlds best kept secrets. Not only is it an effective solution for alleviating menopause symptoms, but it is also more powerful than most other solutions but with no need for pills or potions.

“Yoga has the power to ease most of the physical, mental, and emotional symptoms that menopause brings from age 40 onwards, yet many medics and menopause specialists remain ignorant to this. Therefore, my mission is simple: I want every woman to know that there is an alternative solution for menopause. Not every woman can take synthetic hormones and neither do all women want to take medications, so at last there is an effective natural solution to help,” she adds.

Whilst there are countless styles of yoga available these days, not all are suitable for menopause. Menopause yoga, also known as yoga for menopause, is designed to support women through the transition from perimenopause into menopause and post-menopause.

By incorporating a mix of yoga styles including Slow Flow Yoga, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, and Yoga Nidra, menopause yoga is able to address a wide range of physical, mental, and emotional changes that this phase of life can bring.

In addition, menopause yoga can specifically target symptoms such as anxiety, hot flushes, joint pain, brain fog, low moods, poor sleep, and many more. Overall, menopause yoga promotes wellbeing and enhances the overall quality of life during this key stage.

Typically, less is moreat this stage of key stage of life. Therefore, knowing that most menopausal women cant physically manage a standard one-hour yoga class or dont have the time, and that menopause symptoms can be better managed by breaking down that one hour into four 15 minute yoga sequences per week, My Yoga Journey comes packed with short sequences and beginner-friendly content that can be practiced by every woman at any stage of menopause either from home or whilst on the go.

The Story Behind My Yoga Journey

My Yoga Journey was borne out of Julie’s personal disappointment in trialling bio-identical hormones for menopause that caused her more harm than good. She therefore embarked on finding a natural solution to ease her persistent anxiety, stress, and fatigue.

It was after first stepping on a yoga mat at the age of 53 that Julie realized the challenges of finding yoga content suitable for her age, her lack of experience, and her menopausal body. Non-existent in public classes, it was also impossible to find online too. Knowing that most menopausal women felt uncomfortable with their size and shape and didn’t have the confidence or energy to attend a yoga studio, she felt increasingly frustrated that yoga did not cater for their needs.

After practicing regular short sequences at home, not only did Julie’s anxiety, stress, and fatigue improve, her hot flashes began to subside, her energy levels soared, the brain fog lifted, and the joint pain that used to keep her awake at night was a distant memory. Julie knew she had struck gold and had discovered that yoga was the answer to a natural menopause.

With a new-found passion and purpose, Julie became committed to making menopause yoga accessible to every woman, no matter where they were in the world. After embarking on yoga teacher training and becoming certified in menopause yoga, she set about creating accessible, affordable, and beginner-friendly menopause yoga classes that could be enjoyed from the sanctuary of the home.

But it is the 7-stage Journey that is the real secret behind My Yoga Journey‘s success. The ‘journey’ offers a simple yet clear structure that guides women from taking their first steps on a yoga mat to mastering some of the more complex balancing poses. But by being able to track their menopause symptoms throughout, they can see first hand the amazing transformation in their physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing at every stage. Success breeds success, and with yoga now being an integral part of their life, these women go on to make significant life changes and embrace the freedom and excitement that this new chapter of life brings.
