Sunday, 6th March 2022 at 7pm - 9.30pm / Online Via Zoom
Perimenopause and menopausal years can come with their own challenges but one of the hardest things is not having the support and community and not understanding what is happening to our bodies and how we can help ourselves. Traditionally in the past, women would support each other and share, discuss and ‘sit’ together.
Charlotte and Jess have experienced through the Women’s retreats they run together how helpful this sharing is.
The evening will look something like this:
7pm – Introduction and Welcome
7.15pm – Breathwork techniques to ground and calm
7.45pm – Nutrition talk with Charlotte
8.30pm – Breakout rooms and guided discussion
9pm – Bed time stretches, Deep relaxation and Yoga Nidra
Yoga has been proven to be very helpful at managing the symptoms of this transitional phase of life, from breathing techniques to learning how to move into the parasympathetic nervous system, to poses that help balance the hormones and release stress. Jess will teach some techniques for you to take away and all attendees will receive a 15 min video to take away and keep for life.

ABOUT THE FOOD and NUTRITION
We all have our own journeys and unique challenges in this transitional phase. However, what many of us do share is the classic symptoms of menopause. Hot flushes, night sweats, low libido, poor digestion – the list goes on. While we can’t prevent these changes, we can ease their effects upon us.
The right nutrition is key to health at any time of but especially during the changes that occur in perimenopause and menopause. In fact the wrong diet can actually aggravate symptoms especially hot flushes and anxiety. Using as nutritional approach as part of a strategy to tackle symptom can reap real tangible rewards, easing symptoms and increasing energy and feelings of wellbeing.
I’m really looking forward to sharing the core principles of nutrition in menopause. We’ll look at the key body systems affecting symptoms andsome key food groups that can help. We’ll also discuss supplements too and their pros can cons

Charlotte Schilcher, Registered Nutritional Therapist
After 20 years of having a bit too much fun in the music industry, I decided to retrain in Nutritional Therapy. Throughout my 20s and 30s, I had experienced a number of health challenges. These ranged from mental health issues, hormonal symptoms, skin disturbances and perimenopausal symptoms starting in my early 40s.
They deeply affected my quality of life and conventional medicine offered limited solutions. I began to approach these issues holistically and after much research, I was able to bring my body and mind into balance through changes in my diet and lifestyle choices. This was extremely empowering. I felt in control of my health and that is a good feeling. Experiencing the benefits diet and exercise first hand left me compelled to share this knowledge and help others.
I’m really looking forward to helping you manage your hormones. I will give you the information and tools you need to maintain good health and happiness in your daily life.
