$54.00 The Menopause Salon: Hormones and Menopause

Although a natural phenomenon, the menopause years - pre, present and post are different for each woman. The experience of menopause and all of its stages rarely comes without trials. For many women, the hormonal shifts of menopause can bring challenging physical symptoms and emotions that can leave them feeling tired, depleted, and confused on how to best support themselves. The experience can be isolating if there is not the space to share the experience to gain insight from other women or health care providers. It is important to talk about, understand, and normalize this transition.

We are here to provide hope.
Let’s investigate together how hormonal imbalances and nutritional deficiencies can turned this normal process into mentally fatiguing, physically uncomfortable, and sometimes debilitating process. Most importantly, let’s open a conversation about tools and lifestyle changes to help reduce these physical and emotion challenges and bring you back into balance.

This workshop offers women an opportunity to work with some of the emotional and physical challenges that the menopause can bring on. We will discuss how hormonal changes cause issues such as sleep disturbances, hot flushes, night sweats, brain fog, and mood changes. How these and other physical symptoms can place a burden on those experiencing them and create implications for our family life, relationships, friendships, and careers.

We will have time to dialogue in an open and supportive setting about this shared experience. We will explore this period of transition with compassion for ourselves and others. Together, we will discuss nutrition, stress management, and movement strategies for self care during this important life transition.

Naturopathic Physician, Dr. Daemon Jones and Lighthouse owner, doula and yoga teacher Rebecca Henry will share their expertise to explore menopause from a wholistic point of view.

Rebecca Henry

Owner/Director of Hatha Programming


Rebecca’s journey with yoga and meditation began more than twenty years ago when she took precepts with the Zen Buddhist Society of Compassionate Wisdom, finding that a vigorous yoga practice was the only way to keep her chattering mind quiet on her meditation mat. As those practices expanded into helping her with the stresses of school, and, later, work and family life, she has been exploring the benefits of her practice on and off the mat ever since.

Forever a student, Rebecca brings a beginners mind and an awakened heart to her practice and teaching. Compassion, empathy, humor and joy are at the core of all of her classes. Her focus is on uniting mindful movement with breath while helping people understand of how their own unique body affects their individual practice, in both a traditional hatha as well as a more vinyasa style.

 As a mother of two teenagers, she is impassioned to support other people in their journey into parenthood through the mindfulness and body-centered practices of yoga and meditation. As birth and postpartum doula, she emphasizes childbirth education and body awareness in her pre- and postnatal classes, bringing these practical aspects together with a warm, nurturing teaching style.

Rebecca completed her 200 hour training with Tara Lemerise at Willow Street Yoga in Takoma Park, MD, pre and post natal yoga teacher training with Debra Flashenburg of the Prenatal Yoga Center of New York City and is certified with Leslie Howard in Pelvic Floor Yoga™. She has also completed training with Tara Lemerise, of Tara Lemerise Yoga, in Restorative Yoga, and has completed a 50 hr Yin Yoga certification with Machelle Lee of Roots and River Yoga
