Je suis obsédée: le corps des femmes. Ses représentations. et le cycle menstruel. Ce blog est une recherche, une quête. C'est aussi mon espace dans lequel je me pose beaucoup de questions, dans lequel j'expérimente aussi. Comment être plus en harmonie avec mon corps? En passant par le fitness, plus de curiosités sur l'alimentation et tout ce qu'on découvre de neuf sur le cycle menstruel féminin. Bienvenue dans un monde où la découverte et la réappropriation de soi se passe en "flow motion". 

This blog is also available in English.

It's all about this one and single obsession: female bodies. Their representations. The menstrual cycle. This blog is a way for me to research new ways and experiment It is my space to explore, question myself and get inspired through hard fitness training, learning about food and the power of menstrual cycle. Welcome in a world where learning and connecting with ourself is happening "in flow motion"

Episode #6 with Anna from Medulla 🇬🇧 “there are many cycle and some of them can be used to be creative at work…”

Episode #6 with Anna from Medulla 🇬🇧 “there are many cycle and some of them can be used to be creative at work…”

For this new episode, I sat down with Anna Buzzoni who I’ve met about one year ago. She was giving one of her Medulla Workshop in Berlin. It was an introduction to the menstrual cycle. Understanding the different phases and how it mimics other life cycles (breathing, nature with seasons, the moon) I remember it like an aha moment. I knew I would use what I’ve learned for myself. And here we are one year later! :)

If you’re interested in taking Anna’s workshop in Berlin, her website and her Facebook are great places to start!

I hope you’ll enjoy this insightful conversation and Anna’s silky voice as much as I did working on this episode!

We talked about a lot of things:

  • 03:00 Why teaching menstruants and businesses about menstrual cycles

  • 05:50 the beginning of Medulla adventure. “Something melted inside of me… I became a little softer, I was very masculine, very rigid if you want”. From an intense whistle blower life to a burnout. How personal life experiences have questioned personal choices and the place of the body in the whole process

  • 11:35 Developing Medulla as a « modus operandi » and answering a need that is not address among women in particular

  • 14:45 Was menstruations a burden? What is carried over from previous generations and what the Italian feminist waves have brought to Anna. Was there a misunderstanding around the pill ?

  • 21:18 Menstrual cycles have such strong impact on our bodies and psychologies. Anna explains her optimal way of living the cycle and how she lives all the different phases.

  • 25:29 Why do you think this topic is rising at the moment?

  • 33:50 Getting to the state of idleness which fosters creativity

  • 37:10 We’re surrounded by many biological cycles (circadian clock, plant sap, lunar cycles, breath, hormones,…) “there are many cycle and some of them can be used to be creative at work…”

  • 46:00 “I’m not afraid of mysticism and esoterism” Anthropology and mythology confronted to Science: “Each field has its own limits”

  • 50:21 Anna, how do you remember your first time bleeding?

  • 53:43 What would you say to younger Anna that is about to get her first menstruations?

  • 54:30 How do you envision menopause? “I’m trying to exercise phase after phase, cycle after cycle(…) I don’t know what will happen at menopause but I’m certainly curious about it!”

Thanks Anna for being my guest and for on boarding me on this fascinating journey! :)
