Vivenka Yoga Farm Founder Fiona (spiritual name Sundari) talks about her personal journey through the menopause.

“I was confused during the menopause. Confuse comes from the verb to melt: yes I melted with hot flushes. Sweaty nights, deep tiredness, mental confusion.

As a caterpillar transforms in the chrysalis, structures melting and being reassigned, I knew there was a transformation going on, painful and uncertain as it was.

I know it’s a cliche, the emergence of a butterfly, but post-menopause I really do feel I transformed. Menopause is a wonderful opportunity to embrace change and vision how you want the next part of your life to be”.

Yoga nidra is a very good tool for listening to your heart’s prayer and transforming to the next stage. On this retreat we’ll tune into the spring energy, new life and the spirit of transformation.
