Turn a Midlife Crisis into a Vibrant Restart

 

The age of a midlife crisis often coincides with peri/menopause for us, women. Midlife transition affected by the symptoms of hormonal fluctuation can bring up feelings of confusion, depression and uncertainty.

However, all is not lost.

MEET YOUR INSTRUCTOR

Hello, I am Margarida

I followed my heart and became a yoga teacher upon entering midlife. Now, at 55 and teaching yoga for nearly nine years, I have learned to embrace my aging process and realize I have the power to change how I choose to grow older.

My mission is to guide and support you to seek purpose and relief from your daily hectic routine, offering you a sanctuary to reconnect with yourself and renew.

“I am very glad indeed to be able to learn Yoga from Margarida from ground zero and her very gentle way of supporting my progress. Her instructions are always given in such detail and so clearly mapped out that even a senior like myself can experience the benefits of the practice. Having regular private sessions, I have improved my flexibility and balance in a few months, which is necessary for people of my age. This is surely the right path to a beautiful life where wellness and good health are not an option but a priority."
