Cycle Seeds: A Menstrual Cycle Awareness Workshop with Sara Riad, Aug 10

River Valley
Saturday, August 10, 2024
12pm - 3pm

In our time together, we will be covering everything you need to know about your cycle from diet and nutrition, exercise, hormones, productivity to lifestyle and energy levels in each of the four cycle phases. Essentially, planting the seeds to help you live cyclically and love your cycle. 

Hormones play a vital role in more than just our fertility. Your hormones are key to heart health, bone health, brain health and much more. Contrary to popular belief, you are not meant to live with pain or a challenging cycle and there is so much that you can do to change that. Challenges are your body's way of communicating to you that something isn't right.

Every phase of the cycle yields its own abundance. This means that when we choose to synchronize our lives with each phase of the cycle, we’re capitalizing on our strengths and bringing our bodies back into balance.

Sara found and discovered her love for yoga in 2014—a time and period of transition in her life. In her first ever class, she felt held, supported and guided in a way she had never experienced before, particularly in savasana. With sweat dripping down her face, she felt an immense sense of calm and clarity wash over her. It felt like she had been taken in and nurtured by a stranger. Yoga then became a huge part of her life. A few classes after her first, she knew she wanted to share yoga. It was only a matter of time, space and flow.

Sara then continued to practice over the years which led to her first teacher training with Blair Hughes, followed by her prenatal and postpartum yoga training with Amber Sawyer. She is now a trauma-informed, cycle-aware yoga and meditation teacher, who lives to empower women through yoga. Sara teaches prenatal and postpartum classes to help balance hormones in all stages of a woman’s life. She also runs workshops, one to one classes and group classes on pregnancy, postpartum, pelvic health and hormone balancing.

Sara specialises in prenatal and postpartum yoga and is a menstrual cycle coach in training and guiding women as they transition through menarche, monthly cycles, pregnancy, birth and motherhood.

As a teacher and facilitator, she intends to hold space in a way that brings people back to themselves—creating a sense of acceptance as they shape-shift, and connect to their bodies, breath, inner wisdom, intuitive power and deep knowing.
