I was born into chaos, a chaos that I pretty much took on at a very young age. But I was also born into an intense love that gave me the footing to finally step out of my conditioning and start the expedition back to who I was born to be (at the ripe old age of 33).
My periods were a reflection of what was happening at home; painful, heavy, intense and sometimes frightening when I was rushed to hospital from passing out. But I was told this was normal…… My heavy and painful periods stayed with me for most of my life and when they arrived, instead of questioning was this right, I pushed back. I worked harder, socialised wilder and exercised stronger. And nothing changed. Why did I think this was ok?
Because society told me so.
It wasn’t until life threw a shit storm of experience at me (my close cousin died from a brain haemorrhage, I had a miscarriage at her funeral, my mum had skin cancer and my husbands oldest and closest family friend died from a virus) and I took myself out of my life and into a mixed movement camp in Miami that I began to understand who I was showing up as and more importantly what a period was! My training in Miami bought upon a 28 day cycle that wasn’t painful or debilitating and emotional overwhelm free. This got me curios (and for those that know me, know I like curious, wild and adventure)…..
So upon my return I started to research periods and was dumbfounded at what was presented to me. I realised my period was so much more than just a bleed, it was a way of life! I trained with the Red School as well as reading some amazing books like Wild Power. I started to ask if exercise and movement could be put into the various seasons of the cycle. Again I was dumbfounded to find out that exercising at certain points of your cycle can seriously change your life. And by putting my cycle at the epicentre of my world, I’ve been able to detangle myself from my emotional past and step into the woman I was born to be.
And so here I am. Ready to hold space for you and inspire you to do the same.
Because you can when the person holding you wants you to be more you.
