Women Laughing on Beach

Navigating the SHIFT

No two Women are the same, but for some a day can come in our 40's when it seems like someone hit the self destruct button that we didn't realize our body even had.  One moment we felt like we have it all together, then suddenly, 

  • sleepless nights, night sweats, hot flashes

  • anxiety, racing thoughts, heart palpitations

  • bloating, weight gain, no energy, elevated cholesterol on our yearly labs

  • brain fog, headaches, dizziness

  • muscle aches, joint pains, breast tenderness

  • menstrual irregularity, vaginal dryness, frequent urination, heavy bleeding

I could fill an entire webpage with the long list of complaints that many Women suffer silently from in their 40's and 50's because no on ever told us the truth about menopause.

Welcome to the biggest SHIFT a Woman will ever experience.  You have found a place for support, eduction, empowerment tools and sisterhood to navigate the journey with grace, laughter and peace.

Peri...WHO?  You are not crazy, you're in perimenopause

After 35, a Woman's MindBody begins to change.  Governed by the brain, the ovaries begin to decrease the production of estrogen.  This decline sets off a chain of events inside a Woman's MindBody system effecting every aspect of WHO she is.  Estrogen is an inflammatory protecting hormone, so when it begins to dip a Woman can experience sometimes debilitating symptoms.  Since every system in the body has estrogen receptors, symptoms can be experienced in every major system in a Woman's body, beyond just her reproductive system.  And if you are anything like me, no one taught you this at all.  So know you are not alone if you suddenly wake up one day in your 40's to find everything in your BodyMind falling apart.  

Welcome to Perimenopause, Sis!!!

Peri...WHO?  I know, weird right. There is a major event that takes places in our BodyMind so major it has its own term, yet maybe no one ever uttered that word out loud to you before and it is certainly possible that you have been to doctors seeking relief from your suffering like I did and no one in the medical profession ever explained it to you either.

Perimenopause is the term used to describe the period in a Woman's life when her body is slowly loosing estrogen resulting in the end of menstruation.  This phase can last anywhere from 35-55 for Women.

Menopause is defined as a one day event.  The average age in the US is 52.  A Woman's menopause is confirmed after 12 months in a row of a missed menstrual cycle.  After this one day confirmation of menopause a Woman is then in her post menopause era which continues until the day of her death.

Welcome, Sis

My name is Jessie Kates and I am knee deep in perimenopause, running a business and trying to survive raising a teenage daughter and I see you!

I went through the most intense chapter of my life the year I turned 42.  I titled it "the year I fell apart."  It turned out to be the start of perimenopause, something I had never heard of before.  That lead me on an eye opening and simply amazing learning journey down the winding road of menopause eduction.  This journey has turned  into the biggest passion of my life.  Now a Certified Menopause Coaching Specialist, I am creating a space for Woman to journey together in community and finally have access to the knowledge they deserve, the tools they need and the support of a lifetime to make this the best chapter yet.

Your best chapter yet

I've been to hell and back in my perimenopause journey.  I had to go to the bottom of a very dark and hopeless place and come out on the other side to see it all clearly.  What I thought was the end of my life became my most inspired and empowered chapter yet.  The more I researched menopause the more I learned about the science behind this powerful SHIFT in a Woman's Brain and Body.  The more science I learned and the more knowledge I gained about this SHIFT the more I understood it all.  Walking this path personally no longer in the dark and armed with knowledge has allowed me to make adjustments in my life that have drastically reduced my suffering and given me my life back.  There is nothing I want more than to give that to other Women in my orbit.  So I am boldly creating a safe, connected and empowered space for Women to navigate this big SHIFT together.  My Menopause Specialist Coaching Education allows me to provide evidence based strategies and support for Women over 40 to manage their symptoms, feel better, sleep better and discover just how amazing this chapter of life can be!

The 5 Pillars Of My Approach To Menopausal Mastery

Support For Your MidLife Journey



1 on 1 Coaching

No two women will experience the same Menopause journey so supporting Women on this path can't be a one size fits all approach.  I skillfully and joyously offer 1 on 1 support for women to learn their unique needs to thrive in menopause and feel their best.

A menopause coach can help with exercise, nutrition, sleep and self care strategies to help you manage your menopause symptoms and support your body and mind to be the most vibrant they can be during the biggest SHIFT in a Woman's life.

Schedule a complimentary discovery call and let's chat about how I can help you navigate this SHIFT.


The MidLife MeetUp

There are 5 main pillars of support that I focus on in Menopause Coaching.  Our MidLife MeetsUps are dedicated to taking care of the Social pillar for Women 35 and over.  We simply can't do this alone and while a Coach can be pivotal in our mastery of midlife, there is nothing more fulfilling than having a social circle of folks who can relate to what you are going through, who share in your struggles without judgement and celebrate your joys without competition or jealousy. Our MidLife MeetUps are the social gatherings you have dreamed off.

Join us for a lively  & casual afternoon as we turn the studio into a social club and chill, laugh, bond, connect, and celebrate life and Womanhood!

Our next Midlife MeetUp is coming 

June 8th | 1:30 - 3:30pm



Small Group Workout Classes

Of all the main pillars of Menopause Coaching there is none more powerful to safeguard a Woman's health and longevity and help her manage her menopausal symptoms than strength training.  As our estrogen moves out, joint and muscle pain, inflammation, decreased bone density and lean muscle loss move in.  The research shows that regular movement is our best strategy to mitigate the risks in our bodies as estrogen declines.  For years SHIFT has been a community sharing yoga in groups.  We will be adding menopause specific strength training classes to our schedule so Women over 40 can support their bone and muscle health so they can feel the best in their bodies as they enter their menopause era.


MidLife Massage Event

The #1 reason a Woman over 40 goes to see her primary care is for muscle and joint pain.  This is a lesser known symptom of menopause that many Women experience and have no idea that it is related.

Join Jessie for a 2 hour Master Class for the joint and muscle pain complaints of the menopause experience.  During this inspired afternoon of knowledge and support  we will learn

  • WHY this occurs

  • WHAT to do about it

  • Self Massage techniques to feel better

Saturday, May 11th from 1:00 - 3:00pm
