Don’t Pause for Menopause

A bespoke 8 week programme designed to coach perimenopausal, menopausal and postmenopausal women. Led by nutrition and wellbeing professionals, you will learn how to manage your fitness, nutrition and lifestyle to feel confident, strong and happy in yourself!

Join a wonderful group of women to learn everything you need to know to manage a balanced and holistic lifestyle during the menopause. We tackle the symptoms you may experience during the menopause: 

  • Sleepless nights
  • Hot flushes
  • Weight gain 
  • Low mood and anxiety
  • Lack of concentration
  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Digestive issues
  • Hair loss
  • Skin troubles
  • Headaches and migraines

…and more (it’s important to note every woman experiences the menopause differently, hence education and understanding are key). 

We want you to know you’re not alone and everything you’re going through is normal. It is nothing to be ashamed of and with the right approach to your health and wellbeing, you can absolutely feel like yourself again.

Why Don’t Pause for Menopause? 

Don’t Pause for Menopause is the course our founder, Meera Bhogal, wished she had when she started to go through the menopause. Over 10 years ago, Meera started to feel very anxious, experienced terrible headaches and unwelcome, physical changes in her body too. She had no idea what was happening and was almost too embarrassed to speak to friends and family about it. At first, she thought she was unwell, that something was seriously wrong and the doctors were unsure too – they didn’t even consider menopause as a possible cause. 

What is HRT?

HRT stands for hormonal replacement therapy, designed to relieve symptoms of the menopause. It is a medical treatment which is prescribed by your doctor. 

Of course, there are many benefits to HRT and it helps so many women. Our programme complements your use of HRT by providing active learning, education and a toolkit to support you and your family through the menopause. 

What can be life changing is an understanding of how your body changes, mentally and physically, and what you can do, day to day, to manage your symptoms through simple and consistent approaches to your health and wellbeing. 

Don’t Pause for Menopause teaches you just that: 

  • What is the menopause and why does it happen?
  • What hormones? What do I need to know about hormonal health?
  • Why do I keep putting on weight? Why does my usual routine no longer work for me?
  • Why do I feel so bloated, but nothing has changed in my diet?
  • How do I prepare the right meals and snacks? What should I eat to help me?
  • How can I prevent the stress and anxiety that I’m feeling?
  • How can I sleep better and not feel so lethargic all the time? 

Don’t Pause for Menopause answers all of these questions and more!
