Our wombs reflect the pain of the world. What is happening to the world, can in fact also be reflected in what has been happening to women over centuries – exploited, dominated, hushed and silenced.
We’ve often been taught to be sweet and not heard, to ignore our feminine instincts and to hide our natural cycles as women. Is there any surprise in the growth of women’s health conditions? Perhaps that pain is there to get our attention into a much deeper message?
During my menstrual cycle my yoga practice is a harmonious movement. It’s slow. It’s nourishing. It’s gentle. It’s divine.
Here’s a video with postures for your menstrual cycle. Here you’ll find detailed descriptions explaining how to get into each posture and what to do when you’re there.
On a scale of feeling like you're living in constant warfare to being fully in harmonious flow, where do you sit?
Most of us can often feel at the top end of this battle mode as stress and anxiety levels are at an all time high. But what's the relationship between stress and our menstrual cycle? How does this affect us? And does it impact our fertility?
One thing is clear: the way we’re working isn’t working.

In the last few weeks alone, we’ve been riding a giant cosmic wave with Mercury Retrograde going direct, the Winter Solstice, a powerful New Moon and Saturn moving into Capricorn. The opportunities for us to rebuild and restructure our lives are so readily available. Time to fill our New Year intentions with optimism and expansion right?
Hold that thought for just one moment…
Anyone else out there ever get so excited about something that it can quickly turn into nerves? Me tooo.
And that’s because all around us we’re in a constant dance with polar opposites. We live in a world of duality. Our existence is relationship based...
Many of us expect our energy to be constant throughout the year. When our energy suddenly takes a dip, there’s that slight fear that we won’t be able to keep up, a guilt that we may fall behind the demands of living in this always on world.

Living with Endometriosis is NOT easy.
