How your dosha affects your menstrual cycle in ayurvedic wisdom
Jyoti Chadda is my cycle coach sister, its an honour and exciting to introduce you to her and her cycle work rooted in the traditions of Ayurveda and Yoga.
Jyoti explains that Ayurveda translates to “knowledge of life” and she describes it as a very holistic science, the sister science of yoga, and a philosophy wherein the physical and energetic bodies are understood as a whole rather than individual and separate parts.
What You’ll Learn
Jyoti’s journey from school teacher to cycle coach and biz owner,
An overview of the three doshas which I think of now as being energetic archetypes and how they are expressed within us and within the three phases of the Ayurvedic menstrual cycle.
What we might experience if one of these doshas is out of balance in us and in our cycle and tips for coming back to balance.
Her new podcast which is coming in April: Decolonising Wellness, which is a must listen!!
How we can come back to coherence with family, earth and cosmos to bring harmony to our inner world and health.
How perimenopause triggered her own inner healing journey, and how she supports herself to connect with and release her emotions to have a more conscious menopause process.

In this episode of Wild Flow Podcast I sat down for a delicious conversation with my friend Clare Foale, a writer, an artist, a teacher, a space holder, a tapping practitioner, a questioner and an ocean-lover. Clare and I met originally in cycle facilitator training with Mitle Southey, and shared visions and journeys whilst we sat next to each other. I loved her earrings and beautifully warm wisdom and laugh.
Since then Clare has trained with me to become a Certified First Moon Circle Facilitator, and Clare has claimed her creativity by, amongst other things, dreaming and birthing her magickal oracle card deck called Spacious, which is all about honouring our desires, needs, and sacred selves.
What menstrual / cycle awareness means to both of us,
How we can use incredibly simple reflective questions to support us through the more challenging as well as expansive moments of our menstrual cycles, and daily life as women, mothers, space holders,
Why Clare does not like the term self-care and her own personal practice that she finds infinitely more nourishing instead,
She looks back at the last decade of her life from turning 30 to turning 40, and shares the love notes of wisdom she shares with her younger self,
And Clare offers us an oracle card reading from her new card deck Spacious to hold space for ourselves through the four phases of our next menstrual cycle. This is a beautiful menstrual cycle awareness ritual!

period power: why you should care about your period – wild flow podcast with Charlotte Pointeaux. This week on Wild Flow Podcast…
Understanding exactly what is going on within our bodies as cyclical beings is incredibly profound – in fact it’s life altering, and potentially culturally transformational. When the majority of girls grow up feeling very disconnected from their bodies and reject their menstrual cycles, as they are overwhelmed by cultural and familial menstrual shame, the effects of this play out in a multitude of ways across all realms of our lives. So by learning what your period is, and what your menstrual cycle is as a whole, and intentionally supporting and seeking support during our rites of passages is a sacred reclamation.
