We Spoke to a Student Who Attended the Last Well Woman Course to Find Out What She Thought…

Booking onto the Well Woman course, I was quite apprehensive, firstly it was a commitment each Saturday when I was usually out and about, busy with jobs and meeting friends but secondly because I didn’t know what to expect and that’s always a little scary! However having known Lara for a few years as a yoga teacher I knew I would learn something and above all, it would make me take time out each week for myself.

My husband and I had been trying for a baby for quite some time and I was feeling the pressure, I was confused with the wealth of literature on the Internet and we were waiting on an appointment at the fertility clinic which I had mixed feelings about. On the first day of the course, the room was set out in a circle and Lara welcomed us in. Lara told us about herself and shared some personal information, it put me at ease and I remember us all laughing. We all shared something about ourselves, some more than others, whatever we felt comfortable with and it was comforting to know that other women were struggling to understand their bodies at all stages in life. After the first session I felt amazing! Relaxed but energised and keen to learn more…..I was literally buzzing! Over the weeks we really bonded as a group and have remained close friends. I feel so privileged to have met such wonderful ladies, together we created something powerful and were able to help one another along our journey.

So Lara…she is an amazing lady! Her knowledge, skills and approach taught me so much, she is inspiring! She isn’t pushy at all, but encouraged me to read more and do things my own way, trusting my instinct. Lara taught me to understand my body, to connect with my feelings, to understand my cycle and to relax. She created a safe place where women could talk about their cycle without been judged or be embarrassed. We should and I do talk about it much more with everyone I meet…annoyingly sometimes!

The best thing about it is I am now pregnant! The fertility clinic appointment was cancelled and I’m safely into my second trimester. I cannot thank Lara, Kula and my yogi friends enough! If you are at all thinking about booking onto the course then just do it!

Well Woman Course;

A unique course offering something very different; a new perspective, a chance to really connect inside to learn ways in which to support your body and its needs by taking the time to understand the fluctuations that occur for you uniquely through your own cycle – whether that is a cycle that involves menstruation or not. Womanhood is an amazing journey but at times we can all lose our way. Busy, stressful lives, negative thoughts, too much doing and not enough being leaves us disconnected from who we really are and the incredible combination of softness and strength we have inside us. Our Well Woman Cycle awareness course is carefully designed to get us back on the right path and help us to find balance through yoga, meditation, abdominal massage, increased self-awareness and improved self-care.
