This week offers a chance to revisit a previous podcast conversation – or perhaps hear it for the first time. Lucy Holtom is an experienced Ashtanga yoga practitioner who has a particular passion for helping with women throughout all cycles of life whether it’s to help manage the fluctuation of hormones during menstruation, postnatal recovery, or perimenopause and postmenopause. In this episode, Lucy and Louise discuss the different types of yoga, individual practices and the benefits they can bring. Lucy explains how her interest and experience in well woman yoga evolved and how she supports women in the perimenopause and menopause.
Lucy’s 3 tips for those interested in trying yoga for the first time:
- If you want to try a class, look for recommendations from others and chat to different teachers to find what’s right for you.
- Wear comfortable clothing – you don’t need to spend money on new yoga outfits, just wear whatever you can move freely in.
- Go with an open mind and enjoy!
