A unique course offering something very different; a new perspective, a chance to really connect inside to learn ways in which to support your body and its needs by taking the time to understand the fluctuations that occur for you uniquely through your own cycle – whether that is a cycle that involves menstruation or not. Womanhood is an amazing journey but at times we can all lose our way. Busy, stressful lives, negative thoughts, too much doing and not enough being leaves us disconnected from who we really are and the incredible combination of softness and strength we have inside us. Our Well Woman Cycle awareness course is carefully designed to get us back on the right path and help us to find balance through yoga, meditation, abdominal massage, increased self-awareness and improved self-care.

BENEFITS:

  •  A deepened awareness of what it is to work with the natural energy of your menstrual cycle, rather then against it
  • A better understanding of how your energy ebbs and flows monthly, how you are impacted by seasonal change, moon cycles, times of transition such as perimenopause and menopause and how we can support ourselves at these
    times
  • A better understanding of how your yoga practice can be adapted during the month to accommodate your varying needs… for us women are cyclical creatures, we are not the same every day and therefore our practice needs to be flexible to adapt to our changing needs.
  • A better understanding of what we need as individuals to feel more balanced hormonally to support our overall health and wellbeing to maximize inner vitality and fertility.
  • The practices that we do will be tailored to the needs of the women who attend the workshop and where they are in their own journey through womanhood. For example, perimenopausal, menopausal, suffering with PMT or not experiencing a menstrual cycle.
  • Time for yoga, chat, reflection and sharing with a lovely group of women.
  • Improved cycle awareness and self awareness can have a knock on impact to enhance every part of our lives.
  • Enhancing health and wellbeing, energy and vitality.
  • Enhancing relationships with yourself and others.
  • Improving fertility and womb connection – having a better understanding of the impact of hormones on the body and understanding ways to manage, ease and potentially heal menstrual related problems improving overall health.
  • Preparation for pregnancy, birth and beyond into Motherhood.
