Take control: master menopause naturally with Julie Ann Garrido

It's not uncommon for your menopause journey to feel overwhelming, disorienting, and uncertain. However, at Yourself Yoga & Wellbeing, we think differently. We see this stage brimming with opportunities and believe that menopause isn't an end - it can be a powerful beginning. 

And we're here to guide you on this transformative journey to new beginnings. 

We will help take you from chaos to clarity, from discomfort to vitality, and from low self-worth to self-assurance using the wisdom of menopause yoga, mindfulness, meditation, journaling, and other holistic practices.

“My ultimate goal is for women to enjoy a natural menopause and emerge calmer, more confident, and driving their own bus.”

Meet Julie,

Your faithful navigator, a certified Menopause Yoga Teacher, and Wellness Coach.

Like many women, Julie experienced the frustration of relentless menopause symptoms and the disappointment in bio-identical hormone solutions that caused her more harm than good. But there was a defining moment in Julie's journey - her first encounter with yoga at the age of 53. After great reluctance and at the insistence of her husband, to help her cope with stress and fatigue she rolled out a yoga mat for the very first time.

“After dismissing yoga throughout my life, I now know that WE don’t find yoga, yoga finds US when we’re ready. My time had come.”

By practicing a few yoga sessions each week, Julie noticed a profound shift in her health. Her energy levels soared, work-related stress dwindled, brain fog lifted, and the joint pain that used to jolt her awake was a distant memory. This was no coincidence - it was a revelation. Yoga was the route to a natural menopause.

Feeling more confident

“Since joining My Yoga Journey in 2022, I have gone from feeling old, weak, and past my sell-by date to feeling stronger, flexible, fitter, and so much more confident than I have ever felt in my adult life.”

~ Claire D

I feel so well in body and mind

“I really can’t believe the changes I have seen in myself in just a few months. I haven’t felt so well both in body and mind in such a long time. My husband has also seen the massive change in me.”

~ Dawn B

Finding myself again

“I have less brain fog and feel calmer and happier. I haven’t had a full-blown panic attack since starting yoga. I feel like I’m finally getting myself back whilst finding a better version of myself.”

~ Michelle B

“The elation of discovering the power of yoga for menopause quickly turned to frustration when realising that it wasn’t accessible for all women.”

With a new-found passion and purpose, Julie became committed to making menopause yoga accessible to every woman, no matter where they were on their journey. Certified in Menopause Yoga, she is one of the few teachers worldwide qualified to teach this specialised approach, but Julie’s approach was different.

Realising that many menopausal women felt uncomfortable with their size and shape, and didn’t have the confidence to attend a yoga studio, she was determined to bring menopause yoga to their homes - yoga that would easily fit into busy schedules, and that would take women on a journey to wellbeing and transformation in menopause. Moreover, she wanted women to enjoy a natural menopause like she did.

My mission is simple: I want every woman to know that there's an effective solution for a natural menopause. It doesn’t have to be HRT."

Julie developed My Yoga Journey, an online platform for women to access affordable, beginner-friendly menopause yoga from the sanctuary of their own homes.

The success of My Yoga Journey is nothing short of astonishing. As well as introducing yoga to countless women who have significantly improved their symptoms, it has helped them transform their lives as a result of their new-found confidence and energy.

When she’s not teaching, coaching, or running her wellness retreats, Julie, who is a mother and proud Yaya, pursues her passion for yoga and wellbeing from her home in rural France that she shares with her husband and two dogs. Now in her 60’s, she credits yoga and meditation (of course), swimming, walking, gardening, a strict vegetarian diet, and firm beliefs in mindset and manifestation for her own wellbeing in post-menopause.

“Nothing makes me happier than seeing someone re-discover their physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing and become the very best version of themselves.”
