You’re in the right place if you’d like more vitality, balance and nurture in your life.
Do you struggle with period pain and premenstrual syndrome (PMS)? Did you know that the right kind of yoga at the right time may help relieve them and make that time of the month much easier?
Or maybe your periods are totally fine, but you’re often stressed, exhausted and feel like you’re swimming against the tide? You can recharge your batteries and have more energy by making small tweaks to how you live your life. Living in sync with the natural changes you go through during your menstrual cycle, instead of ignoring or over-riding them, may give you more vitality and nurture.
Perhaps you already practice yoga and would like to gain greater benefits from it by discovering different yoga sequences that match the ebbs and flows of how you change physically, mentally and emotionally as your hormones shift.
Maybe you are a yoga teacher and want to improve your teaching through professional development to understand more about the crucial connections between yoga and the menstrual cycle.

Yoga and the Menstrual Cycle – Live in Harmony with your Natural Rhythm is a complete practical guide to how your cycle really affects you. It enables you to be at your optimum health and wellbeing by living in sync with your natural changes.
If you struggle with periods and premenstrual syndrome (PMS), you’ll find simple lifestyle tips as well as yoga to help ease these times of the month.
If you want less stress and tiredness, you’ll discover practical and small-but-significant changes to how you live your life. So that you know the best times to be out in the world and when to chill out. You’ll be able to do simple yoga that will give you more energy and balance – and that will nurture you when you need it most.
If you already practice or teach yoga, you’ll learn which yoga practices to avoid, when and why. You’ll also find out how to adapt your practice to honour the ebbs and flows of the menstrual cycle. This stops us from getting worn out and depleted. It also taps into the deeper benefits our cycle naturally gives us – if we allow ourselves to practice appropriately at the crucial times.
There are 7 yoga sequences with clear step-by-step instructions and photos. They’ve been specially created to give women what they need at the different times of the cycle. This yoga is simple and do-able by most people – you don’t need to be super-fit or flexible. And it only takes a few minutes – it’s not as long as a class, because most of us don’t have that much time.
It’s not just a yoga book. There is also information about where our attitudes to our cycle come from and why they’re generally not helpful. An easy-to-understand explanation of how our cycle works is given with and common problems are covered. It explains the extent to which hormonal changes affect us physically, mentally and emotionally – much more than we’ve been led to believe. Plus, you’ll learn how to track these shifts and use them to always be at your optimum health and wellbeing.
It’s available as a paperback and an eBook. And you’ll also receive 3 free recordings and, for every copy sold, I donate to environmental charities to help look after our precious planet.

About Sue Blanch
I’m passionate about transforming women’s experience of their periods and menstrual cycle so that they no longer suffer with symptoms or grapple with the constant changes our hormones put us through.
I struggled with period pain and premenstrual syndrome (PMS) for 30 years. I finally worked out that by tuning into my cyclical changes and doing the right kind of yoga at the right time I suffered no more.
My period pain and premenstrual syndrome (PMS) went away and now only come back if I’m not taking proper care of myself.
To my surprise, I also discovered benefits to the menstrual cycle that I never knew existed. Like times when I am full of creativity, which I capitalise on and live my life around. Now I do just 10 minutes of yoga most days and live my life in sync with my cycle.
