Creating Your Perimenopause Plan

In Closing

2016-03-01 08.45.15cropped

Congratulations, you now have your very own Perimenopause Plan! Thank yourself for making the time to do something important for your health and well-being. Hopefully you are feeling more empowered with all these helpful resources.

As I mentioned at the beginning of the guide, this has been a passion project for me. There were so many things that I wished I had known earlier that I feel could’ve made a difference in my quality of life going through perimenopause. My sincere hope is that everything I’ve learned can benefit you now and make your perimenopausal experience easier.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, and let me know how your perimenopause plan is working for you. And if you found this e-Guide helpful, would you be so kind as to share it with your family and friends on social media? The more we can normalize talking about perimenopause with other women, the easier I think the experience will be for ALL women going forward.

~ Christy


As I mentioned before, I've spent countless hours over the past decade doing my own research about perimenopause. Some of the information in this e-Guide was gathered during conversations with doctors, pharmacists, acupuncturists and friends. Mostly I read a lot of books, blog posts, articles and newsletters. I also listened to podcasts and took online courses. Whatever the manner, there is a quite a list of people and sources I am indebted to for the information I learned over the past 10 years that subsequently helped me in putting together this guide:

Dr. Mariza Snyder - blog posts and podcasts

Susan Willson, CNM - blog posts

Dr. Sara Gottfried - The Hormone Cure

Susun Weed - The New Menopausal Years

Nicole McCarty - Common Source Acupuncture

Nathan Worthington, PharmD - Clark Professional Pharmacy

Dr Jill Schneiderhan - University of Michigan Medicine

Dr. Tara Allman - Menopause Confidential

Dr. Eric Braverman - Younger (Sexier) You

Dr. Mark Moyad (University of Michigan Medicine) - The Supplement Handbook 

Dr. Christiane Northrup - blog posts

Dr. Aviva Romm - blog posts

Suzanne Somers - A New Way to Age

Jacqui Justice, MS - online courses

Leslie Howard E-RYT, IAYT - Mindful Menopause webinar





I have been practicing yoga with Christy for over 13 years and I can say that I have learned more about yoga and grown more as a human in that time period than I ever would have imagined.

Jessie C.

Christy's attention to mindfulness is something I particularly appreciate and her style that incorporates teaching students about yoga principles in practice reinforces the instruction.

Kellie M. R.

I love the personal attention and Christy's teaching style, which recognizes that everyone comes to class with a different intention. Oh, and the studio is GORGEOUS.

Sadie W.

Thanks to [Christy], I've become stronger, more flexible, and more mindful, both on and off the mat. Christy is kind, supportive, and knowledgeable. She challenges me to deepen my practice, but only at my own pace.

Kelly R.

Of all the yoga teachers I’ve had, I’ve found your approach to be the most supportive and have recommended you to several friends, who now happily take your classes as well.

Stephen N.

I have been taking Christy’s classes for 12 years now and haven’t missed a session. I feel invigorated and whole when I leave Vinyasa or any class!

Jen W.

Christy’s new studio is incredibly warm and inviting. The small class sizes always make it feel more intimate and personalized. I couldn’t recommend this studio more!

Tim W.

For me, your classes help me to curb my anxiety, charge my battery, think clearly, react appropriately, be courageous without being rude or offensive, and strengthen my muscles.

Lori B.

Christy’s “Yoga Room” is unique and genuine. Classes are small and the environment supportive and welcoming. It is indeed a quiet refuge. [Christy’s] teaching style is informative and accommodating.

Dave R.

[Christy] is simply a lovely person, a qualified instructor and a centering influence on the mat. This is a special place. And I feel special when I am there.

Andrea B.

I went to The Yoga Room for five years before moving and I can say, hands down, it’s the best yoga studio I’ve ever had the privilege to Vinyasa at!

Megan A.

[Christy] makes you feel comfortable no matter your ability or skill level. The hour I am doing yoga, I feel like I am far away from everything. I leave in a better state of mind.
