Yoga For Cyclical Well-being
Empowerment Practices for Women of All Ages
This 13-module Yoga and self-care program is a transformative road-map for all women wanting to discover the secret of living a healthy, empowered and thriving life in our male-skewed world.
Why this road map?
Because it hits me time and time again when working with women how easy it is for us to mistake taking men on at their own game for empowerment.
So many women rush around taking care of the needs of others in their busy career- or family-focused lives. But they find little time for their own self-care.
Even women with all the trappings of 'success' often tell me how drained, empty, in pain or disconnected from themselves they feel.
I'm rarely surprised, because one key ingredient is missing from their lives: honouring their cyclical reality as women.
Without this, women (whatever our age) can never truly thrive.
But our linear culture has taught us to neglect or even despise our cyclical gift. So instead we strive to get ahead by mimicking the male power model, which ends up sucking us dry.
Push-on-through lifestyles are making us ill
A recent client of mine had struggled with fertility problems and now complained of:
- Back pain
- Debilitating menstrual symptoms as she navigated her menopause
- A sense of being ‘lost’, stuck and overwhelmed by her non-stop lifestyle
- A feeling of disconnection from any feminine softness or rhythm in her life
She acknowledged how she had never much liked her body and its female processes (menstruation - ‘just a nuisance’; menstrual blood - ‘yuck’).
She had simply over-ridden any symptoms that threatened to slow her down with gritted teeth and medication.
And she had taken pride in being just as reliable, tough and successful as any man.
I totally related to her story! For me, it took two years of no menstruation and four years of infertility in my early 30s to make me realise that the push-on-through way I was then living was making me ill.
Cycles: the Source of our Feminine Power
For the reality is that we are not the same as men.
Men's energy reflects the stable presence of Sun, with its direct linear rays. Ours is aligned with Moon's cyclical waxing and waning.
So men can survive in our society's intensely competitive environment of non-stop busy-ness.
Women cannot. This culture wreaks havoc with our hormones and severely damages our health, our sense of well-being and our self-esteem.
Women embody nature’s cyclical turning in their menstrual cycles. Their echo - guided by the Moon's ebb and flow - remains with us after menopause and throughout our lives.
Our cycles are our essence, so we ignore them at our peril.
But ignore and suppress them we do. From low self-esteem to infertility to breast cancer to hot flushes, our myriad ‘women’s’ problems manifest our neglect.
Our Strength, not our Weakness
Early in my own healing journey, I learned the secret that has been kept from women for centuries: that there is a feminine alternative to our dominant patriarchal manifestation of power.
And the power of that feminine way lies in the very cycles we've been taught are our weakness.
I've been exploring this cyclical feminine way for nearly twenty years. Long ago it helped restore my fertility and brought colour back into my life. And now, in peri-menopause, my cycles (becoming more energetic than menstrual) continue to guide me.
It's my mission to bring the transformative secret of our cycles to light so other women can embrace a new way of relating to their feminine selves and of expressing their truth in the world.
It will never be enough to just demand our rights as women.
We cannot step into our authentic feminine power and start to thrive in health and life unless we ourselves:
- Stop mistaking taking men on at their own game for empowerment.
- Fall back in love with our cyclical reality and embrace our cycles as valuable - the source of our strength, not our weakness.
- Honour the seasons of our cycles in the way we live our lives.
Retrieve the Wisdom of Your Cyclical Self
A person can only feel empowered if they live in line with their own essential nature.
So ask yourself this: How can you possibly feel truly strong and confident if you don't much like your cyclical essence or the natural processes of your own female body?
Stop ignoring or berating your cycle. Instead, dive deep into it.
Yes, I know this might sound like a tall order if you suffer from uncomfortable and distressing menstrual symptoms. And I understand your wariness.
But I also know from my own experience and that of many other woman that moving closer is the way to discover the hidden power that lies behind those symptoms. And to access the full richness of the cyclical inner guidance system that constantly feeds back to you whether you are meeting your own needs in your life.
Within that cycle, your body regularly calls you to pause in your busy life to listen in.
When you do this, you reconnect with the whole truth of who you are and what you want from life; only then, as your cycle's energy turns, can you radiate the gifts of our own unique way out into the world.
Right now, the male-skewed world is sorely deprived of our feminine gifts. We need to restore that balance for the sake of ourselves, humanity, all living beings and Mother Earth in these difficult times.
Need Support on Your Journey?
Perhaps you've already deeply felt this need. But you don't know where to start.
That's why I created my online program. As a roadmap to guide you.
But Yoga for Cyclical Well-being: Empowerment Practices for Women (YCW) is not for everyone. It is specifically for women (of all ages) who:
- Want to live thriving lives that honour their cyclical reality
- Are hungry to learn a new way of being that will transform their relationship with themselves
- Are perhaps struggling with menstrual, fertility, menopausal or other health or well-being issues
- Are ready to commit to doing what it takes to achieve real and lasting change
If that sounds like you, I commit to personally guide you step by step how to:
- Fall back in love with yourself, your female body and its natural cyclical processes
- Navigate the relentless demands of daily life as a woman with serenity and ease
- Maintain and restore harmony and health in your mind and body on a daily basis
- Balance your emotions and hormones for menstrual, fertile, menopausal well-being
- Build the self-esteem and self-confidence to take your truest self out into the world
The YCW Program
This ground-breaking program combines theory and practice to give you the sure framework to decipher your body's signals AND the tools to rebalance any disharmony. And it shows you how to live in line with your ever-changing energy, instead of always struggling against it to get things done.
Its online format offers great benefits, including allowing for steady, ongoing practice and progress in the comfort of your own home.
But I won't leave you to fend for yourself in the virtual world. I'll be there right by your side, giving you the very best 1-2-1 and group support. You'll also be held and supported by the other like-minded women on the program.
The program centres around gentle women-centric Yoga, Qigong and self-care practices, founded in the cyclical rhythms of the Chinese Five Elements.
On my own journey, these proved my most powerful tools. So I’ve spent more than a decade honing my skills here, finding out what really works and what does not. Now I'm sharing with you just the essence of what I've learned so you can avoid all my time-wasting wrong turns on your way home to your true feminine power.
Here's a summary of what is included in the program:
- Lifetime access to 13 modules of online videos - these include all the theory you need to start to care for your cyclical needs; and a rich selection of Yoga, breath and self-care practices, so you'll have something for all the different 'seasons' of your cycle. And you'll get all future additions and upgrades. (See Class Curriculum below for previews of program content).
- One-year access to weekly group support calls and a private online group forum - our relaxed weekly calls are a precious and popular component of the program. They give us the chance to share and to listen, supporting each other and getting answers to any questions we may have.
- Four 1-2-1 support calls - you can book these calls at any point through the program, whenever you feel you could benefit from some additional personalised support.
- FREE BONUS OFFER - one free Yoga or Qigong class each teaching week with me in person in Cambridge, UK for one year (if you are local or anytime you can come!)
The YCW program will take you through the last 20 years of my experience at warp-speed to give you the true and lasting change you have been looking for.
