Mindful Menstruation Workshop
May 5, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Do the days before your period turn your life upside down? Have cramps, bloating, mood swings, and conflict become an unfortunate premenstrual norm? Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) is a condition that affects a woman’s emotions, physical health, and behavior during certain days of the menstrual cycle. Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) causes emotional and physical symptoms, like PMS, but women with PMDD find their symptoms debilitating, often interfering with their daily lives, including work, school, social life and relationships. Join us to…
• Learn the ins and outs of the menstrual cycle
• Gain practical tips on how to mindfully navigate hormone shifts
• Create a practical, holistic, self-care plan that will work for you
