About the Event
I am so excited to teach at Flow Jam again this year- please see below for the workshops I'll be teaching :-)
MENSTRUAL CYCLE AWARENESS FOR YOGA TEACHERS
Join Lexi, the Cycle Witch + CUNTOPIA founder, in a workshop on the four phases of the infradian, lunar and menstrual cycles specifically geared towards yoga instructors, energy healers, coaches and employers. Even if you don’t menstruate, many of your clients do. It is your responsibility to be aware of how this affects their healing needs so you are not further harming them with practices that historically only consider circadian rhythm + testosterone dominant bodies, mental health and disposition.
Healing your client’s relationship to this cycle not only increases their vitality and wellness, but also unlocks their full creative potential as humans. Help your clients put an end to burn out, maximize their creative potential and teach them to love + trust their bodies and intuition. End disconnection from the lunar cycle, written of as ‘lunatic’ and the womb cycle, written off as ‘hysterical.' This is for ALL genders.
FALL IN LOVE WITH MENSTRUATION - For ALL Genders
Join Lexi, the Cycle Witch + CUNTOPIA founder, in a workshop that will CHANGE the way you view menstruation forever. Our disconnection from the lunar cycle, written of as ‘lunatic’ and the womb cycle, written off as ‘hysterical' - has kept us, ALL genders, Men, Women, Agender, Nonbinary + more... from harnessing the true power, creative potential and our intuitive inner forces of nature that lies within us and our infradian rhythms.
Warning: you will FALL IN LOVE with this cycle
Even if you don’t menstruate, you know people who do AND you experience your own infradian rhythm. Stop harming yourself with practices that historically only consider circadian rhythm + testosterone dominant bodies, mental health and disposition.
Heal your relationship to this cycle to increase your vitality and wellness, unlock your full creative potential as humans, put an end to burn out and fall in love with your body's intuition.
