“I developed this course in response to the gap between what I knew as the philosophy of yoga and my own relationship with my body, my challenges in intimate relationships and erratic menstrual cycle. Despite decades on a mat, my inner world was still chaotic and the pressures of attempting to conform to the image of the yoga industry and find my “purpose”  self-defeating. I discovered that it was necessary to break away from a typical yoga lineage but without abandoning its timeless wisdom.” Bex.
