Ever wondered why you feel, behave, look or perform differently throughout your cycle? Yep, the individual fluctuations of your humble hormones have a massive influence.
Instead of dreading, pushing through or masking these changes that occur for you, what would happen if you embraced them?
Cyclical living does just that. Allowing you to support your body and mind throughout the natural ebbs and flows of your menstrual cycle, cyclical living can even be tapped into in times of your life when you have an absent or irregular period. It’s all about honouring, nurturing and nourishing your body, so you can ultimately feel your best, for you & for your loved ones.
To delve into this topic, I introduce you to Mum, yogi & Integrative health practitioner, Oliva de Fluitter.
Olivia is a Pilates and Yin Yoga Instructor, an Integrative Health Practitioner and Mumma to a 3 year old. She is passionate about reconnecting women to their natural rhythms through movement, food and wellbeing practices.
Drawing on the ancient philosophies of Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine underpinned by the science of sports medicine, functional medicine and naturopathy, Liv coaches Cyclical Living Programs which help women to understand the power of their cycle and balance their hormones through syncing their movement and food choices with the four phases of their menstrual cycle.
She also holds monthly Pregnancy Retreats and offers pre and post natal Pilates and Yin Yoga online programs as well as workshops on Ayurvedic wellness.
