I’m passionate about women enjoying optimal health and well-being by living in harmony with their menstrual cycle. I don’t want you to suffer needlessly like I did and I want you to know that your menstrual cycle can be a help in your life – not a hindrance.

I struggled with my cycle for 30 years until I found that tuning into my cyclical changes and the optimal type of yoga at the appropriate time almost totally eliminated my period pain and premenstrual syndrome. I was amazed – and still am! My levels of stress and exhaustion improved as I learnt to go with my ebbs and flows, instead of keeping going all the time. To my surprise, I also discovered benefits to the menstrual cycle that I never knew existed, like times when I’m full of creativity, which I now put to good use in my day-to-day life. You can read my full story in the free Introduction to my book here.

I have been practising yoga for 21 years and, before my menstrual cycle adventures, I found it the perfect antidote to a hectic London life and a demanding career as an environmental manager in engineering and construction.

A deep and personal experience of this work

Inspired to spread the word

I struggled with my menstrual cycle for 30 years, not knowing that there were simple things I could do that would alleviate my difficulties. I don’t want other women to suffer unnecessarily like I did so I am inspired to share what I’ve discovered.
