            Day 6 - Winter {Menstrual Phase}

Join me #28daywelcomebackyourcycleawarenesschallenge

This 28 day challenge was born from a place of welcoming back the whole month of a woman's cycle. Often, it's just the time of menstruation that we give any consideration to our cycle. Our complete cycle is the inner compass to our bodies needs, and a guide to living a more balanced, meaningful connected life.

Breathwork to Energise and Relax


  • Short sharp breathe through the nose. Inhale - two breaths in, exhale once out (all through the nose) ten times.
  • Breathe in for 4, breathe out for 8, five times.
  • Breath in and out with sigh .
  • Promotes a feeling of being deeply nurtured.
  • Calms the nervous system by activating the Vagus Nerve and Parasympathetic Nervous System
  • Relieves tension
  • As with all deep breathing exercises, the increased flow of oxygen improves the complexion and cleanses the inner organs.
