Welcome to

Do you ever feel let down by your body when it doesn't do what you want it to?

Why your body needs cyclical yoga?

You may be totally confused why you were repping squats like a boss last week, and this week you're not 100% sure you're gonna make it up the stairs? Well, wonder no more!

Your body rides a wild hormonal rollercoaster every month, with dizzying ups, and plummeting downs that often leave you wondering what the heck just happened!

Meaning some weeks you might be pumping iron like Arnold Schwarzenegger, while other weeks you’re struggling to lift a spoonful of peanut butter to your mouth {Just me? It’s my fave go-to snack, straight off the spoon!}

But fear not, my friend! These energy fluctuations are totally normal! It’s not that for some reason you are failing, or not doing enough. They just simply don’t match the linear stream of energy the external world expects of you!

Give yourself a big, juicy hug from the inside out!

What is Root & Rise and why do you need it?

➡️ Root & Rise is a virtual studio that delivers movement designed to work WITH your body’s natural rhythm. So instead of beating yourself up, you can move with mother nature to build an intelligent practice that aligns with your energy.

➡️ Stop forcing yourself into the same old exercise routine every month only to wonder why it’s not working. Moving cyclically is like having a personalised workout plan tailored to your body’s needs in each cycle phase.

➡️ With over 100 practices to choose from and a new one dropping every week, it means no matter what phase you’re in, you’ll be sure to find a practice that will have you feeling more centred and energised than ever before.

And it's not just yoga!

Root & Rise is a one-stop shop of Cyclical goodness. It's not just about building a movement practice that brings you joy! It’s about understanding your body off the mat too! That’s why you get Cycle Design (A 30-day Cycle Charting & Journaling audio course) to support you!

Cycle Design helps you to discover your unique cyclical blueprint to unravel the mysteries of your cycle (and stop asking ‘what word with me’ when your body throws you curveballs) 

👉 Your period is medically recognised as your 5th vital sign of health.

Everything from the duration, colour, small and quantity informs you of your overall health. As women and people with periods, we have relied on the outside world to inform us of what is happening in OUR bodies for waaaaaaay too long. So developing your body literacy is the art of translating the messages your body gives you. 

👉 Knowing your cycle instinctively and being able to understand the messages your body gives you intuitively is NOT the same as logging on to an app to TELL you what is going on in your body!

Don't get me wrong apps have their place but relying on them to inform you about what's happening in YOUR body takes your agency away.

Not to mention learning to chart is a kinesthetic practice that develops a deeper connection and meaning to your cycle insights.

And the thing about cycles is that they are all just so unique, and how Sally in Accounts experiences hers won't be the same way you experience yours.

👉 There is a broad spectrum of what is considered ‘Normal’ when it comes to the menstrual cycle.

And learning how to chart yours and understand it deeply in YOUR body is the stuff personal power is built on!

Being able to anticipate WHAT you need and WHEN to support your well-being means you will…..

✨ Never be blindsided by your emotions again.
✨ Move your body in a way that supports you all cycle long
✨ Have self-care that changes with your internal fluctuations.
✨ Stop asking ‘What's wrong with me?’ every time you wobble.

The world you live in was not designed for you to fit into! It is a linear system that works on a 24-hour cycle. Not a 28-day cycle! And trying to fit into that, will always leave you feeling like a round peg in a square hole. You might fit, but not to your fullest capacity!

But what you can do is learn…

What works for YOU
What feels good for YOU
And what makes sense to YOU

I highly recomend Root & Rise, Samantha doesn't know it but she has helped me every day to get strong and learn to appreciate my body. - Beth Moxon


What is Cycle Design?

Me in your pocket for 30 days! (I mean that’s just gold in itself) 

🩸 On the first day your bleed starts, hit the ‘Big Red Bleed Button’ (in your welcome email) and I will drop a daily, bite-sized audio journal or thought prompt straight to your inbox via Soundcloud! 

You could even say they were Sound Snacks…….. 🤔

You don’t need to go anywhere or have yet another login to yet another course. It’s all delivered straight to your inbox and prompts you every day to keep the practice going. 

Each sound snack (yup, that’s stuck) is between 5-10 mins, so don’t worry, you’ll be able to fit them in every day as you start to develop your charting practice. 

🩸 While you wait for your beeld to start, I will pop in with cyclical nuggets of wisdom to keep you occupied until Day 1 (the first day of your bleed) 

We will break down elements of the cycle and I will teach you a cyclical framework to really set the foundations for your daily practice. 

After your first cycle I will check in with you over 2 months to make sure you are sticking to your new practice and of course to offer you more micro lessons to strengthen what you have already learnt.

You can ask questions along the way in the Facebook group, or email/DM me directly if they are too personal to share. 

🩸 The whole focus of this is to build micro habits, day-by-day practices, in little bite-sized steps. So that over time it becomes like brushing your teeth! 

This is a self-study course with no live elements so you can do these lessons at a time that's right for you and gives time for things to gently sink in. And I promise when you get into the swing of things, it is a habit that will take no more than 3 minutes a day. 

And in exchange, you will develop a technicolour dreamcoat of wisdom that will support you now and through perimenopause. 

🩸 By the end of the course, you will of course be a Cycle Charting pro! 

I give you the tools to be your own detective so that when life gets lifey you don’t fall apart or start questioning what's wrong with you. 

But more than that, you will have learnt about YOUR cycle and YOUR body. And you won't need an app (or anything else) to tell you what is happening or what you need. You will know it as part of a deeper connection to your intuition. 

My gratitude goes to Samantha who has truly helped me get in tune with the cycles of my body to live with more peace and less struggle. - Jen Albano

Questions I get asked a lot...

Before I answer this I just want to say, you do not need to be flexible to do yoga! You just need to start where you are, as you are.

You don't need to have done yoga before to join the membership, by nature of the way I have designed the membership there are some challenging classes and some slower, gentler classes. If you have done any form of exercise class and are used to using your body in a creative way like dance, aerobics, gym class, keep fit, at home work out etc you will feel quite comfortable. If you have never done any movement class ever, it might be a little bit of a learning curve, but definitely something you can learn. Even if you can't touch your toes!

There are lots of workshops to help you find your feet with the more complicated postures and I always give variations and modifications in every class to suit different body and mobility types.

I always encourage everyone to share in the community if I have not given a variation that suits you and then I can give you more tailored modifications so that you can grow your practice.

Yes, you can cancel at any time. After you cancel, your membership will run until the end of the payment period you chose. After it has ended you are free to come back to join another time.

In an ideal world, a mat, 2 blocks, and an extra-long strap, please contact me for recommendations before you invest, but really all you need is a floor space to get started.

No problem, for whatever reason you don't have a cycle or it is irregular you can learn to chart the cycle you do have or cycle with the moon.

Moving in sync with our body through the cycle phases helps to nourish us by working with our bodies rather than against them. If you're interested in this, let me explain some about it here > more here....

About Me

Yoga has changed everything for me, I just love to move my body! Sometimes my practice doesn't even look like yoga, some days it's more like interpretive dance, and some days I might just breathe. I am an eternal student, driven to find new ways to practice and expand my knowledge.

My menstrual cycle has also been a key player in shaping how I feel in the world, after having my last coil removed I felt compelled to explore my feminine energy as I reclaimed my cycle. The ancient wisdom of menstruality resonated with me deeply and I knew that this was my path.

My yoga practice began about 10 years ago. After years of pushing myself to the limits both in mind and body, my early practice created such a profound shift, that it left me totally hooked! Yoga is more than movement, it is a practice of being connected to your body with awareness, conscious intention and mindfulness. And this is what I love to bring to my teaching.

I have a variety of formal training, which pulls from numerous styles in the yoga system as well as various functional range techniques. I trained with The Sacred Fig and am certified as a Vinyasa teacher, registered with the Yoga Alliance.

I blend a style of traditional yoga systems and functional movement methods along with my own twist of cyclical wisdom to offer a varied practice that helps my students move with more freedom, ease and flow both on and off the mat.

I am also a certified Cycle Coach and Menstrual Wellness Educator mentored by Claire Baker, which offers a unique blend of experiences to help my students move with the rhythm of their natural energy cycles.

I live the practice of being connected to my body and its cycles to help me stay consciously and mindfully, aware of myself and who I am in the world every day. My own body has been one of my biggest teachers!

I walk my talk and live what I preach. So much of what I am able to share has been informed by my own experiences, I live it every day, from the moment I wake up to the moment I go to sleep!

I am guided and comforted daily by an internal compass which has led me on a journey of self-exploration both on and off the mat. The marriage of Yoga and Cyclical Living has changed my life in ways I never thought possible and for that, I am deeply grateful. Read more about my story HERE

Are you ready to feel this for yourself? To feel empowered and body confident and to be ready for whatever life throws at you?

And don't just take my word for it......
