Give yourself a meno-PAUSE: Self care for women in Midlife!

The Foothills Wellness Retreat and Shauna Laubman welcomes you to spend the full day at the DeWinton Community Hall; a hidden jewel in the rural Calgary countryside. This unique retreat 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 affects 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, 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.

We reflect on our life experiences, embraces our wisdom, and releases any burdens or regrets. Upon reaching the end of the path, each woman is welcomed back into the circle by her sisters. We acknowledge our wisdom, strength, and resilience. Finally, the group gathers in a closing circle to share reflections and offer support to one another as they continue their journey into the crone phase of life.

Jillene Potter- I began my profession in the healthcare field 25 years ago as a Registered Nurse. Throughout that time I have gained experience and expertise in many areas including the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) during the most recent 15 years. 5 Years ago, I was struggling with what many women do in perimenopause. Weight gain, brain fog, bloating …. oh, the bloat, hair falling out, and lack of energy and motivation. My focus for women is to heal their guts and have balanced hormones. I never want to see women suffer by not knowing there are solutions beyond conventional medicine. My goal is to support women to thrive in their health and wellness by providing the knowledge and tools to have balanced hormones through perimenopause and beyond.

The Foothills Wellness Retreat is in support of the Rowan House Society. We will donate $2.50 from each of our Retreat ticket sales directly to the Rowan House.
