be mindful in your cycle
achieving a more relaxed menstrual cycle
with orit zilberman & merel uitendaal
Sunday, September 10th
The benefits of this workshop:
Every day in a woman’s cycle may feel different. Having a healthy menstrual cycle is having constant hormonal changes.
These hormonal changes influence all body aspects, physically and mentally, and it’s completely normal! But sometimes it can feel too much to handle. In an ideal world, women could take a break when it becomes too much, but for most of us, it’s not possible and the discomfort or pain negatively affects our daily function.
From our experience, being mindful of the discomfort, stretching our pelvis, pressing on acupuncture points, and having a suitable lifestyle can help women handle their daily functioning during their cycle. In addition, a better lifestyle can prevent the discomforts from growing and evolving into a chronic condition.
If we eat, sleep, move and breathe better we’d feel better mentally and physically and our bodies could heal and prevent illnesses or their aggravation.
That is why Merel (Yin Yoga Teacher) and Orit (Chinese Medicine Therapist) created a special workshop to provide women with the understanding and the tools for self-management of their difficulties along their cycle.
Who is it for:
All woman above the age of 18 who wish to independently treat the difficulties with her cycle are welcome.
