Women's Circle at Satyam Yoga Studio
Step out of your busy life for an evening of gentle feminine reconnection, movement and sharing as we feel into the light of the Full Moon in Winter's dark stillness.
The seasonal energy of Winter naturally sinks and draws us into deep rest, while the Full Moon naturally activates and draws energy upward within us, towards our chest (a key area for women's health) and our head.
In our Circle, we'll use gentle Yoga, Qigong and self-care practices to explore this relationship between expansion and contraction, light and dark, movement and stillness.
We'll feel into how the dark Yin energy anchors the rising force of Yang, which can otherwise overstimulate our Heart and mind, leaving us hyper, anxious, overly emotional, restless and struggling to sleep. And how the 'pilot light' of Yang prevents the Yin from sinking us into a swamp of apathy that is hard to emerge from in Spring.
And we'll take relaxed time to chat and share around our theme as we embrace our natural cyclical feminine way as good and right and valuable.
Our cyclical feminine rhythms
We women embody the rhythmical flow of nature and the moon through the turning of our menstrual cycle (whose echo remains with us after menopause). This cycle is a gift that teaches us when to ebb and when to flow - when to retreat and restore and when to push ahead with busy activity.
These rhythms connect us to elemental nature and are the source of our well-being and power as women.
But we live in a culture that feeds us negative messages about what it means to be female. So most of us live in a linear way - ignoring our bodies' signals and pushing on through in the same way each day. And dismissing our cycle as a burden, our blood as shameful and our hormonal shifts as making us weaker than men.
What actually weakens us is this disdainful attitude towards our female reality.
Why come to a Women's Circle?
In our Women's Circles, we support each other in rewriting the story of what it means to be female.
Here, we gather with like-minded women to fall back in love with our cycling female bodies and to connect with our true feminine authority and power.
- This Women's Circle is a safe, relaxed, friendly space, where you can lean in and let yourself be held.
- It is open to all women of all ages - whether you are looking to boost your overall well-being or whether you are navigating some general or female health issue.
- Don't feel you to bring your best self along or stay away because you are not feeling great - just come as you, however you are feeling right now.
