Living Hormoniously – A half-day celebration, embracing your body’s natural rhythm
How much do you really know about your cycle? How aware are you of each of the 4 dances of your reproductive system? When is the best time to spread your social wings or for implementing new ideas? Of much needed conversation within your relationships or for bunkering down in quiet reflection?
In each of the 4 phases of our moon cycle, lurks not just the energy that requires respect but also individual gifts that if stepped into rhythm with, can vastly assist and enrich our lives as a whole. This is not just about figuring out how to cope with the seemingly constant shifts and changes within our own personalities, born from the changes in our cycles, this is about embracing, riding with them in the direction that is required, so at all moments you are in the fullness of your dance as a woman. No contradiction. No confusion. No apologies.
Join us for this gorgeous half-day course that looks at what foods when, how best to move our bodies during which phases, the role of the breath in assisting equanimity of mood and sensation, understanding cycle for fertility awareness (to fall, or not to fall, pregnant), when we are at our most creative, most abundant and most reclusive, when it’s time to talk and when it’s time to reflect. As women, one of the hardest questions that we face on a monthly basis is - what is me and what is my hormones?
Allow yourself to become completely empowered by knowledge, strong in who you are; let go of any notion of the ‘curse’ of being a woman and instead blossom from this foundation upward.
Rich and relevant for all menstruating women of any age.
1 x 4 hour session which includes (relevant to each phase): food advice (and healthy snacks!) breathing techniques, movement, physiology, exploration of common issues and ailments, deep connection with other community girls and women plus so much more.

Fella’s – Know Your Ladies
In a cohesive and harmonious relationship, knowledge of the moon rhythm, is not just responsibility of woman. Without a doubt, we are as women responsible for ensuring that we are riding our rhythms in the most positive way for everyone but our partners have a responsibility for their own peace and well-being, to be that outside observer who can pay attention to where our cycles are at for those times when we're too deep in it; not just to provide a loving reminder of where we might be in our own moon calendar but to have their own awareness, to step in when the energy is waning in the luteal phase and step the hell out of the way during the creative fire of ovulation. There are many ladies who's men remain blissfully ignorant to these rhythms that are so deeply affecting their own existence without them even realising it. So to change that, we present 'UNDERSTANDING THE FEMALE RHYTHM' facilitated by Tahlia and Lissie, along with Shane Turner, yoga teacher, Zen Thai shiatsu massage therapist and trainer, and all round man guy. Ladies, start wording up your fellas, it's time to joyfully ride these incredible waves together.
