Midlife Wellness Retreat-$70

Give yourself a meno-PAUSE!

Self care and movement for women in Midlife.

The Foothills Wellness Retreat welcomes you to spend the afternoon at the De Winton Community Hall; a hidden jewel in the rural Calgary countryside. This unique Midlife Self Care Workshop was designed to bring our community together, to connect in a learning environment, and nourish the mind, body and soul. Hormonal changes in women during the transition of perimenopause and menopause can often impact well-being and quality of life. Often misunderstood, it impacts women in their mid-30’s and lasts usually until their 50’s and beyond. This self care retreat will provide: education and discussion about perimenopause and menopause symptoms;  hormone balancing yoga, breath work, energy movement, Pilates, relaxation, nutrition and authentic discussion. Participants will have the opportunity to relax, renew, and realize how self care can impact their well-being during midlife.
