Love Your Period Workshop: Movement and Rest

Have you ever told a friend "I hate my period! I wish I was a boy."

Do you feel like PMS rules your life? 

Have you been told you are "over-sensitive" or "irrational"?

Do you approach the week before your period with fear and anxiety?

It doesn't have to be like this. This workshop can help. Having your period doesn't have to be a tearful, painful or irritating experience. There is another way!

In the Love Your Period workshop series, we will go step by step through a series of experiments you can use to help you have a happier period. Once a month, we'll meet on Thursday mornings to learn about unorthodox but effective ways of managing our PMS, cramps and other symptoms. 

This workshop is about Movement and Meditation. We'll explore how cardio exercise, mediation, stretching and sleep can all support a more pleasant period. You'll learn how to time your heart-pumping workout and when it's okay to just stretch out for an hour. You'll leave with an action plan for a whole month of period supporting exercise AND rest. You can RSVP for the Movement and Meditation Workshop here.

The final workshop is on Supplements and Support. We'll talk about supplements can support different symptoms, and when it's important to take supplements. (Hint: It's not everyday!) We'll also discuss working with outside support, when you're doing all the right things and it's not getting better. You can RSVP for the Supplements and Support Workshop here. 

Each workshop is $35 or you can subscribe to the series for $100.

Testimonials:

“Lily creates a safe, open space for women to share their lives, talk about how to create happiness and support each other. Lily has lots of great exercises that make it easy to reflect on the current state of your life, identify areas in which you want to improve, and discuss how to go about that. She uses a combination of guided exercises and open discussion, giving the group enough structure to make progress, but making it flexible enough to meet everyone’s needs. I can’t wait to keep creating happiness in 2015 with Lily’s help!”— Kealy

“As I sit alone in my house, cherishing the open space and time that I have instead of trying to cover up emotions and feelings, I think of the journey that Lily has helped me through. Through exercises, projects, and just a listening ear, Lily helped me cure myself of self-inflicted (dis)ease so I can feel radiant and unapologetically proud of who I am and what I have to offer the world.”— Mia

You might have objections like:

• "Everyone has period cramps and PMS. Are you saying there's something wrong with me?"

First, you are perfect and complete and loved. 

• "It's always been like this. A few mediation exercises isn't going to change anything."

If you could experience your ideal menstrual cycle, what would it be like? Painless? Free from anxiety?

• "Yuck, periods! Who would want to talk about that for an hour and a half!?!"

Hear that, right there? That's what women are taught; that our periods are gross, annoying and taboo. Let's change the stereotype! Let's create a world where our daughters grow up knowing that every month they get a physical reminder that they are the cradle of life. Are you willing to be the catalyst for that change?

By the way, if you are committed to using Advil, coffee, and pints of ice-cream to survive your periods, this workshop is not for you. If you honestly believe that your periods aren't that bad, this workshop is not for you.

If you are sick of feeling crazy, crampy and bloated every month, this workshop is for you. If you are scared of leaving home without Advil but open to experimenting, this workshop is for you!

I am excited to share my work with you, and confident that attending this workshop series will create a sensation of peace and freedom surrounding your period. If you are not completely satisfied with our work together, I guarantee a 100% refund. You must show that you have completed the workbook, attended all sessions and implemented my recommendations.
