As you can see in the promo video, I am Tessa and my emotions change throughout my cycle. I'm sure you're the same. But what can we do to change our cycle if it's troubling us, or to create a deeper relationship with it? This course will take you on a journey for 30 days with practices and resources to explore. And you won't be alone - we'll do it as a virtual circle of women.
There are yoga videos, yoga nidras (relaxations), meditation, poems reflective writing and much more. Over one of your cycles you will explore these resources (it doesn't matter where you start in your cycle). As you engage with different practices you will develop a (deeper) relationship with your menstrual cycle.
You will have access to a secret Facebook group where you can share your experiences with other women on the course if you wish. The power of women moving through something together, even if virtually, is so powerful. We will also have three Facebook live sessions where you can interact with me and ask questions.
By the end of the course, you will be clearer how to make changes to make the most of your cycle, rather than fight against it! I hope you will find at least a few techniques that will make such a difference that you continue them for a long time afterwards.
I look forward to being on this journey with you
Hello. I am very passionate about women having information about their bodies so they can make the right choices for them, and beautiful practices to nourish them deeply.
I have run the Caversham Red Tent for more than 5 years now. I have completed the Women's Quest Leadership Apprenticeship with Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer, and am currently finishing my certification in facilitating Menstrual Medicine Circles with the Red School. I also facilitate Celebration Days for Girls around the time of their menarche (first period) and run Menstrual Cycle Awareness courses for women.
I have practiced yoga for 24 years and taught for 16 years. I bring you a range of practices that have nourished me over that time. For more information about me please visit www.tessayoga.co.uk/about-me.
