The Dark Moon E-book

Nurturing Yoga for Healthy Menstruation

After reading this book you’ll never look at your monthly cycle the same way again! This is an inspirational guide for every woman who menstruates.

Well-known yoga teacher and women’s health specialist Ana Davis explains why we need to slow down and nurture ourselves when we menstruate and how this can boost your energy levels, heighten your fertility and improve your overall health and wellbeing.

The Dark Moon: Nurturing Yoga for Healthy Menstruation is all about a uniquely feminine approach to yoga that recognises that women are essentially cyclical and the kind of yoga we need to practise when we menstruate is very different from the rest of the month.

This E-Book also introduces you to Ana’s concept of Moving with the Moon. Did you know that your monthly cycle is linked to that of the moon and that tuning into the lunar cycles can enhance your connection with your body and help you fall in love with your Period?

Learn the all important ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’ for a safe and appropriate ‘Dark Moon’ yoga practice to support you when you bleed.   With the tools that Ana shares in this book, you will look forward to your monthly cycle as an opportunity to enjoy deep rest and rejuvenation with her healing, feminine yoga practices to soothe your body and your soul.

what others are saying
“This course is so wholistic - I love how it truly focuses on the body and spirit of a new mama, and her growing/new babe. It’s not just asana. The course addresses the WHOLE mama, and I think that is invaluable. It’s exactly what I was looking for when researching online courses. It would’ve made more sense for me to do a course in the USA but I was really drawn to this one for the spiritual and emotional elements." Amber (USA), Online Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training graduate, 2017

"I found your Online L1 Yoga for Fertility Teacher Training course to be tremendously worthwhile and very enjoyable. The course was very practical and accessible. I was able to apply what I was learning right away since everything was laid out very clearly. I have a personal journey with infertility so the material was both personally and professionally valuable to me. Since it is a subject so close to me I was really able to feel the benefits of the various sequences." Prairie (NZ), Online L1 Yoga for Fertility Teacher Training graduate, 2017

“The course was exactly what I needed. I liked the emphasis on safety and the therapeutic recommendations for the various pregnancy related ailments. Ana’s style of teaching offers a practical approach, whilst being centred, empathetic and nurturing. The flexibility of being able to do the course in my own time was very much appreciated. I have a busy teaching schedule and I’m a mum so it was good to be able to take the time I needed to complete the course properly. I really liked the structure of the course, very clear and easy to follow.” Julia (UK), Online Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga TT graduate, 2015

I have been craving more knowledge and depth into Yoga for Fertility and you well and truly delivered. I ran a small workshop from my home on Sunday to put what i had learnt to practice.
