ABOUT THE SPEAKERS & TALKS

Love your Cycle, Change the World. We’re talking about your menstrual cycle. This monthly miracle is often described as ‘something that just happens’ to the female body. But what if the key to empowering ourselves and living life fully lies in unlocking this inner intelligence? Find out how by loving your cycle, you can discover this power within you and, yes, change the world!
> LISA LEVINE
Is a Practitioner and Self-Care Teacher of The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy®, Acupuncturist and Yin Yoga Teacher. She is passionate about educating women and men towards better digestive and reproductive health.
"We have been taught how not to get pregnant not how to get pregnant." Frankly, I feel we have been mislead regarding many areas of our reproductive health. So all my teaching now are about re-educating people to take their health into their own hands and that starts with body literacy.
> SARAH MANNING
Has been a yoga teacher since 1995. She has taught Hatha, Prenatal, postnatal, back care and yin classes as well as private classes supporting specific needs. She is a senior lecturer for the International Yoga Teachers Association (Sydney) and regularly facilitates training internationally.
In today's modern world, women do not celebrate their menstruation. We track our steps, monitor our sleep patterns and heart rate, but does any of it nurture our femininity? Is it time to honour being a woman and ALL that it entails? Menopause is a time of great change and opportunity - lets use it!
