Pilates and Menopause - Improve Your Quality of Life

Updated: Mar 16



Poor sleep? Difficulty with stress management? Achy joints? Poor nutrition and hot flashes? Good news! Trainer Lisa Wellington has developed a program addressing these and other menopause symptoms.


To my fellow mid-lifers,

I’m sure you're aware that there are definite symptoms of menopause, but did you know that there are 34-40(!!)? And that every woman’s menopause is UNIQUE?

Many women’s symptoms are slow and creep up.

Many women experience radical shifts in their health and well-being.

Not to mention that menopause has been a Taboo subject for years.

As a woman, a fellow midlifer, we don't need to go through those years alone.

I have been training in this age group for years and finally determined that many of us don't have a support system with the right information and the right tools.

Therefore, I developed a LIVE program that uses Pilates functionally as we transition thru life, providing relief with the right exercise and the right intensity. In each class, we will address a different symptom(s) that women experience during perimenopause and menopause. Healthy habits, basic nutrition tips, stress management tools will also be offered and discussed. Pilates for Common Menopause Symptoms: Using Pilates moves in a functional way addressing osteoporosis, achy joints, pelvic floor activation, and hip release. Focusing on lightweight movements, relaxing, and stretching. Pilates for the Spine, Shoulders, and Hips: Mixing strength, mobility, and core strength. The Posture Project: Beginning with Posture Analysis, using various pieces of equipment we will focus on postural awareness exercises adding flexibility and stretching. Pilates HIIT for Metabolism: Utilizing Yoga Blocks we work quickly thru 30 sec Pilates-inspired exercises focusing on balance, mobility, and strength. Pilates for Neck and Shoulder Pain: Using Pilates moves to Relieve Neck and Shoulder Tension, which is linked to migraine headaches using stretching and mobility moves Pilates for Pelvic Pain and Pelvic Tension: Focusing on relief and relaxation of the lower back, hips, and pelvis using a gentle approach with movement to release tension and increase blood flow circulation. I developed this program from my knowledge of Pilates and my experience with my own journey with peri to post-menopause and witnessing how the benefits of Pilates exercise can help women through this time.
