Hi! I'm Sara.

This course is for you if:
- You want to understand the very real benefits that menstruation provides young women
- You want to be a source of true support for them around this important topic in the their lives

A young woman who truly knows her cycle, has a life-long foundation that will support her in every aspect of life there-after.
In this online course you will learn:
- ALL about the female body
- How the female body works
- About the history of menstruation and how this affects us all
- About changes during puberty

I would say it’s actually crucial to do this course if you want to truly support your self in deepening your relationship with your cycle / to be cycle wise - I love that term - and then be able to share with young people from that place of discovery and wonderment at how awesome our bodies are.
What's in the course content?
This module takes a deep dive in to the history of menstruation and how society has shaped our beliefs around it. It is very exposing and revealing as to the extent of the lies around women's bodies.
In this module we explore the female body and how it works, in the depth it deserves. Enjoy learning about the changes from puberty and beyond.
In this module we look at hormones and how they intricately and very precisely support a woman's body. Hormones are very beautiful in the way they communicate and teach us about cycles.
This module shines light on the conditions that women can experience with their menstrual cycle and hormonal health, along with the varying methods of possible treatment.
This module is about all the practical things! We look at what is 'normal', period products and the options and benefits for a young woman in charting her cycle.
In this module we explore the topic of empowerment and how it has been corrupted when it comes to all things menstruation. As well as all things on how to support our girls and boys.
