Menopause Support

I offer Yoga & Wellbeing to support you on your menopause journey, so that you can sleep well, live well and love life.

According to Dr Claire Phipps, 80% of women experience symptoms during the menopause; 24% are severe, and 77% women didn't realise their symptoms were menopausal.

"The Menopause" is an umbrella term that encompasses the 3 stages of menopause:

i) Perimenopause - usually occurs in your 40s and can last 6+ years

ii) Menopause - period-free for 12 straight months (not due to another medical condition)

The symptoms related to Menopause can last 2-3 years according to the Straw definition.

iii) Post-menopause - any time after the menopause

Which stage are you?

My Approach

My name is Nicky Dye

I am a Menopause YogaTM Teacher, Therapeutic Yoga specialist and Shiatsu Practitioner with over 10 years’ experience of treating people with all types of health concerns.  As a Mind-Body Expert, I bring my deep knowledge of TCM Theory, Ayurveda, Yoga and the Chakra Energy System in the 6 Week Health Support Programmes to ensure the best possible outcomes.

I blend the symptom-led approach of Menopause YogaTM with the Five Element Theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  In TCM, we consider the whole being (mind body emotion spirit) and identity patterns of disharmony, within a framework called 5 Element Theory (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water).

Nicky trained with the founder of Menopause YogaTM, Petra Coveney and the founder of Yoga Medicine, Tiffany Cruikshank, where she studied Chinese Medicine.

“Over the last 2 years, my digestion weakened, my period became less regular and I developed severe PMS.  I found that when I was stressed, I lacked energy, concentration, memory and a sense of humour.  My weekly sessions with Nicky were a godsend and nourished my soul when I was struggling to cope.  I feel stronger mentally and physically now, and have some go-to yoga and lifestyle tweaks when I need a pick-me-up.”
