In this episode, Dr Louise Newson is joined by yoga teacher, Claudia Brown who runs workshops at Newson Health Menopause and Wellbeing Centre. Claudia is an Om Yoga magazine columnist and runs classes, workshops and retreats in the West Midlands. She also works with professional footballers, teaching yoga at Doncaster Rovers Football Club! Together, Dr Newson and Claudia discuss ageing well and the menopause, demystifying meditation, how yoga is more than physical postures and why everyone should give it a try.
Claudia’s Top Three Tips for beginning your yoga journey:
- Just do it! Don’t be afraid to start, ask for recommendations and try different classes to find the right teacher.
- Don’t get caught up in buying the right outfit or equipment. You can practice yoga in just about anything!
- Don’t talk yourself out of it because of your body size – it isn’t relevant to your strength or how your body moves. You will always be among friends in a yoga studio.
