Fitness in midlife

Strength training is a must in midlife. Don’t be put off by thinking it means lifting massively heavy weights or ‘bulking up’. My blog post An Introduction to Strength Training in Midlife has a sample routine using minimal or no equipment to get you started.

I talk about my path to movement and mindfulness in midlife with Dr Andrea Wilkinson on her BrainShape podcast – Movement and Mindfulness for Midlife (Episode 106).

Debra Atkinson at Flipping Fifty specialises in hormone-balancing exercise for women in perimenopause and menopause. She is a fitness expert, speaker and coach.

I love Debra’s 12-week strength training program – it’s time-efficient and evidence-based. Here’s the program I love.


Yoga is a powerful practice that can help us to remember we are whole. At its core, yoga is about union with ourselves and with others.

Yoga has been part of my life since the 1970s when my mum introduced me to the practice. Back then it was seen as very woo-woo! Yoga has been an amazing tool for me in managing menopause, and I would love to share my practice with you. I am a registered yoga teacher with Yoga Australia and I offer classes and one-on-one sessions online.

The yoga I teach  

  • Meets you where you’re at. Don’t be sold the lie that you “have to be flexible” to do yoga
  • Honours yoga as an ancient practice that originated in India thousands of years ago
  • Seeks to encourage radical self-acceptance

Contact me to find out how I can guide you in your practice.

Midlife can be a powerful and positive experience. Sadly, however, many women experience gendered violence and harrassment at this time.
