Body Transformations over 40th
Make exercise your best friend and menopausal symptoms will be better…  

If you’re experiencing menopausal symptoms, it feel as if you’ve lost control of your body and mind. The reason is because our bodies become low on oestrogen (in fact our period stops too) responsible for all those weird consequences of low oestrogen include everything from hot flushes to low mood.

Here all the things you can do:

Grab a Wearable

Tech gadgets, which measure your steps or your heart rate, your steps and what you like to do in a the day.

Hot flushes and sweat at inappropriate times exercise helps indirectly by helping us maintain a healthy weight. Walk, jump, run, wake up early and use your body as much you can…

Dance ‘let it go…’

Serotonin is a ‘feel-good’ brain chemical food and oestrogen is involved with the action of serotonin. Low serotonin is a reason for low mood. Exercise triggers the release of endorphins, serotonin, dopamine, adrenaline. Get your groove on at a dance class. We can enjoy the music and experience a bonding feeling from a group workout.

Get your weight-bearing exercises

Following menopause there’s a rapid loss in bone density… Pure stretch and balance exercises are a smart choice. In our routines we do weight-bearing exercises (T- positions) when you hold the weight of your body up against gravity.

We work on our body awareness skills, which can help prevent falls as we age, reducing the risk of fractures and breaks.

Go strong

Strength training among women need to be done following the logic of a female body. Menopausal women experience muscle atrophy (muscle loss). Research has shown strength training can not only slow muscle atrophy but also reverse it starting from 2 times at week.

Beneficial exercises are multi-joint strength moves, such as squats, step-ups and lunges. Feel the burn. The Ballet Barre classes are perfect…
