Yoga, Lifestyle and Natural Health Alignment with Alice Vignoles and Friends.

Feeling low on energy? Frustrated? Burnt-out? Tired of doing “everything right” but always running on empty? We hear you!

In this transformative women's health series, let us help you maximise your natural well-being, creativity and happiness by working with the natural inner cycles and needs of your body and mind. Based on the menstrual cycle and inner seasons, we apply yoga, meditation, natural medicine to realign, reconnect and empower.

Online - Over five lessons, learn in depth about how your menstrual cycle affects your body and energy and learn how yoga, meditation and natural health practices can support you to realign body and mind to get the most out of life. With instructional videos and guided practice videos you can do daily, you can take the course at your own pace, in your own rhythm, at home.

In Person - A series of 5 workshops take place with Alice and joined by special guest experts in fields such as Herbal Medicine, Chinese Medicine and Accupuncture, Kundalini Yoga, Creative Writing and Meditation. You'll get access to the online course too to help you practice at home."

In this class we’ll learn about our innate masculine and feminine energy and how to balance and nourish both sides of ourselves. We’ll learn how to take back time to nourish ourselves even when life is demanding. We’ll introduce the process of increasing your awareness of the changes that take place in your body through out your cycle and how to work with it for maximum well-being, creativity and happiness. The online course for June will support you in adopting healthy practices that are easy to add into your day, avoiding creating unnecessary stress on your physical health and carving out space for yourself.

Your Body, Your Compass

2nd February

This class will focus on making an ally out of your body, not an enemy. Using awareness, feedback, loving self-reflection on our bodies, our bodies can help use get to the heart of the matter, identifying when things aren’t working and when they are. By developing this we can take the hard work out of managing our physical and mental health and well-being by keeping in flow. As the phase of menstruation is the time we’re best able to identify what is not working for us and have vision for the future, online support will give you practices to help have “your best period ever.”

Nourish and Grow

16th February

This in person class will focus on putting in place proper nourishment for yourself, including the proper foods, but also carving out support systems into your life and incorporating activities that make you feel good. Knowing when you are reaching depletion and identifying where you draw strength and enthusiasm from. The follicular phase will be the focus for this months learning. A time of growth, renewal and openness, it’s the ideal time to try new things and improve your routines.

Your Inner Voice Unleashed

1st March

In order to be well in all areas of our lives, we have to be able to be able to express ourselves, feel heard and uninhibited.
