Women's Circle Workshop Online
Self-care is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation.
Hormonal fluctuations often have a direct repercussion on our emotions and energy levels. Although this cycle-related phenomena is mostly normal and expected, it can still have a considerable impact on a woman’s wellbeing and overall mental health. Stress often gets shoved aside and ends up accumulating during the day (and month!), which can at some point trigger feelings of anger or anxiety, leading to a sense of loss of control, internal meltdown and freeze moments.
Are you trying to run your life as if nothing is going on and simply keeping it to yourself? Sounds familiar?
In these self-reflective sessions we practice regulating the nervous system in various ways, as well as create a safe space to share our personal experiences, strengths, and struggles. Connection is safety! Together we will also meditate, practice breath work and body and brain exercises to calm down the primal (fight/flight) brain. Prepare yourself with a great toolbox for any moment, and feel more equipped and in control of your body and brain.

“The women’s group was heartwarming, recognizable, and very relaxing for me! Some loving time for yourself, with low profile breathing and yoga exercises… Jeannette is sweet and professional! Thank you Jeannette!”
“The Women’s Circle sessions with Jeannette really feel like a total reset for me. It’s great to connect to other women and to take time to connect to your body and “unplug” from the rest.”
“Jeannette combines her wisdom as a therapist with a holistic approach to the body, using techniques of yoga and breathwork. The women’s circle is a weekly moment of selfcare for me, which helps me to ground into myself and the present moment. I love the sharing with other women, because whether it’s struggles with our cycle or our family systems, it makes me feel connected knowing that I’m not the only one.”
“It’s so nice to participate in the women’s circle. Each meeting brought me something I didn’t know I needed; balance, calmness, tranquility or happiness. The yoga exercises and breathwork are like a flow and make you land in your body. Then all senses open up and there is room for reflection. How are you really doing inside. I felt so safe and supported by the insights and listening ear of Jeannette and the feedback and support of the women’s group. Really a gift.”
