Women's Circle Workshop
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 this self-reflective workshop we will 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. Fix your roof when the sun is shining!
