I’m Sue and welcome to my website.

I’m a menstrual cycle consultant, yoga teacher and author of Yoga and the Menstrual Cycle – Live in Harmony with your Natural Rhythm. I struggled with my cycle for 30 years until I found that living in sync with my natural cyclical changes and the optimal type of yoga at the appropriate time eliminated my period pain and premenstrual syndrome. To my surprise I also discovered benefits to having a cycle that I never knew existed, like times when I am full of creativity, which I now capitalise on. I love to share this powerful approach with women through my book, workshops, blog and social media. You’re warmly invited to join me at my workshops coming up in Windsor in October – there’s nothing better than learning face-to-face in a supportive group of like-minded women.

Enjoy my website and do get in touch if you’d like to know more.
