In this video, I interview Petra Coveney, founder of the world’s first classes, workshops and teacher training courses for Menopause Yoga, which she launched in 2013, following her own menopause experience. She is also a former journalist and BBC producer – and author of a book on Menopause Yoga that will be published in October for Menopause Month. Petra works with menopause doctors and was the first yoga teacher to join the British Menopause Society for health practitioners. Her unique approach to the menopause combines both western medical science with eastern wellbeing. She was among the first women in the UK’s wellbeing industry to support a women’s right to choose HRT alongside lifestyle changes – at a time when both the words Menopause and HRT were taboo.
