1 Day Menopause Retreat – Darlington, County Durham

January 19, 2020


Your Amazing Experience

During your Menopause Retreat, you will meet specialists experienced in the field of menopause. You will have the opportunity to share your experiences with other like-minded women, and leave the retreat feeling empowered and positive. Women who have attended tell us how life-changing they find our retreats!

You can come alone, or bring your sister or friend who may also be going through menopause, post-menopause or peri-menopause. But if you are on your own, you will be made so welcome by our team, so please do not worry, we are here for you!

What to Expect

  • As you arrive, you will be greeted by your host for the day, and have the opportunity to meet your fellow retreat guests.
  • Yoga is the first session of the day and is suitable for all abilities. Beginners are most welcome, and you will not be the only one never to have experienced gentle yoga before! Our experienced menopause yoga teacher gently shows you how to relax, and regain physical control of your remarkable body.
  • After a short break, you will then meet our delightful Nurse, who has a specialist interest in all things menopause! She will guide you through all the physical changes and talk about treatment options, busting myths about HRT and more. You might have some questions to which you really need answers, so now is your chance!
  • After a delicious lunch, The Menopause Chef Academy takes you through how diet and weight management can help you when it comes to midlife. You will get to sample food you may not have heard of, and experience the benefits of talking to our qualified Nutritional Therapist during this session.
  • During the afternoon break, we have some fun and laughter as we taste non-alcoholic fizz, and try some wonderful Montezuma Chocolate.
  • Then, saving the best until last, we delve into the mind, and learn how to cope with anxiety and mood swings, plus learn how to get a good night’s sleep! Some serious topics are covered here, but in a playful fun way. Our qualified and highly experienced Psychotherapists help you leave empowered and inspired, looking forward to what life has to offer. You will feel far different from how you felt when you first arrived!

All refreshments are included during this wonderful day. Just dress to be comfortable.

Nestled in wooded parkland on the outskirts of Darlington and located between the North Yorkshire Moors and the Pennines, yet only forty-five minutes from the historic cities of York and Newcastle, Blackwell Grange provides a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and makes an ideal location for our retreats.
