Every woman wants to feel beautiful both outside and in . . .
Therefore, this month we are celebrating gratitude and well-being for all women in our
community with a special event. In honoring the mission of the London-based organization, Bloody Good Period, Blisshood is working with the incredible yoga instructor, Louise Cutler, to bring you a special yoga session that will focus on building your own internal bliss, while contributing to the bliss of others.
This hour-long Hatha flow class will connect you to your feminine power, grace, and
intuition by celebrating your own inner strength. In exchange, we ask for no fee but to
contribute to the empowerment and wellness of fellow women by donating two bags of
sanitary pads or a bag of cosmetics at the event. The collection will be given to a local
women’s refugee/ asylum seeker center, where residents have the opportunity to participate in make-up courses and receive additional sanitary supplies.
As women, we all benefit from celebrating our beauty. Join us in celebrating the beauty
and bliss of all women in our community.
Please note, the center only accepts sanitary pads (no tampons to be included). Cosmetics such as face creams, nail polish, lipsticks and glosses are recommended.
IMPORTANT: bring your own mat and wear comfy/yoga clothes.
Closest Metro Stations: Gares: Trinité, Havre Caumartin, Chaussée d'Antin, Auber & St Lazare.
THE YOGA INSTRUCTOR: LOUISE CUTLER
Louise started yoga at the age of 15 and since then has become a full-time Yoga teacher. Louise believes that no one size fits all and that each body has its own perfect embodiment of Yoga. She wants students to feel at home in her classes and encourages them to move with joy, grace, and creativity. Yoga is meant to be a fun and joyful experience. Louise is also a massage therapist and yoga teacher trainer. In her spare time, you can find her on her mat, reading an anatomy book (geek!) or enjoying the foody delights of Paris.
THE ORGANIZATION: BLOODY GOOD PERIOD
Bloody Good Period aims to create a sustainable flow (pun intended) of menstrual protection for those who can't afford to buy them.
Menstrual supplies are not cheap, but for anyone with a period, they are, of course, an absolute necessity. It is absurd that they are not free for those who need them. Many women and people who menstruate living in poverty resort to using toilet paper, old scraps of fabric or nothing at all.
We want to take the financial burden out of the most annoying time of the month by providing supplies to those who need them.
We supply 16 asylum seeker drop-in centers based in London and Leeds.
Our ambition is to supply many more food banks and drop-in centers across the UK so that bloody good period can be had by all, or you know, not actually have to exist!
About the founder
Bloody Good Period was started by Gabby Edlin who decided something needed to be done about the fact that very few food banks and asylum seeker drop-in centers were providing feminine hygiene products on a regular basis - despite a desperate need. What started as a whip-round on Facebook is now a growing enterprise with a vision to end period poverty.
Special thanks to Elena Rossini for assisting Blisshood and Bloody Good Period to join forces in favor of all women in our community!
