My name is Gaia, I am a midwife and a sexual educator. In the last years I have focused my work on menstrual education for young girls and adult women. I see the menstrual cycle as an incredible recource for women. That’s why it fills my heart with joy to get young girls and women closer to this innate power.
Mi chiamo Gaia e sono un’ostetrica e un’educatrice sessuale. Duranti gli ultimi hanno mi sono specializzata in educazione mestruale per giovani ragazze e donne. Vivo il ciclo mestruale come un incredibile risorsa e mi riempie di gioia poter avvicinare giovani ragazze e donne a questa forza innata.
Mein Name ist Gaia, ich bin Hebamme und Sexualpädagogin. Seit einigen Jahren liegt der Schwerpunkt meiner Arbeit in der Menstratuionspädagogik. Ich sehe den Menstruationszyklus als eine unglaubliche Ressource für uns Frauen und es freut mich daher sehr, eine Begleiterin junger Mädchen und Frauen auf dem Weg zu ihrer inneren Kraftquelle zu sein.
Laura Tonello is a translator and a womb yoga instructor with a degree in theology and a diploma in sex education. She is mother to three sons, and lives in the north of her native Italy. Currently she works in collaboration with the “L’Acqua che Balla” (Dancing Water) Association in Trento (www.acquacheballa.it).
In addition to her work, Laura organises and manages regular seminars and events on self-empowerment for women, promoting self-awareness through deeper understanding of the menstrual cycle as well as leading weekly classes in pregnancy yoga.
Laura trained as a pregnancy yoga teacher with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli. In collaboration with Jane Bennett, Laura completed her program for mothers and daughters on the passage into puberty marked by the onset of menstruation (menarche): A Celebration Day for Girls. Laura was also one of the first intake of women to complete Alexandra Pope’s pioneering “Women’s Quest, Women’s Leadership Apprenticeship Training”, a programme of feminine empowerment through awareness of the menstrual cycle.
Laura has also created a nine-month program called “Cerchio Rosso” (Red Circle), which she runs regularly in Italy to promote the practice of the female cyclic nature based on the awareness of the menstrual cycle.
Throughout her career, Laura has continued to deepen her understanding and practice of yoga, meditation and psychotherapy. This has led her to offer regular classes of Womb Yoga for women, Celebration Day for Girls workshops with mothers and daughters and the Menarche Ritual as one-day workshop for women.
