Experiencing the Art of Menstruated Cycles Through Movement and Poetry
July 3rd was an eye opening day for our Nala family! We were honoured to host the lovely Inka Linda who shared her wisdom on topics such as embracing menstrual cycles, owning our femininity and, most importantly, BloodLove. She awakened new perceptions toward the chaotic and cyclical nature of feminine energy and strives to transform attitudes of shame and fear into those of love and acceptance.
Inka Linda is a multidimensional artist and a menstrual cycle enthusiast. She guides women to reconnect with their own unique menstrual wisdom through therapeutic, creative practices. Her project BloodLove is a growing international online community where women from all over the world can safely discuss, connect and share inspiration about their own menstrual experiences through art and storytelling.
Nala strives to create a safe space for us to share our personal experiences and learn from one another. Check out the links below to learn more about the art of Blood Love and become part of our Nala family!

Poetry is love, blood love. 🩸 Tonight’s Period Party 🥳 session with @inka_linda was all about how to tap into our feminine energy to harness creativity. We wrote down the word BLOOD and dug deep into our wombs (figuratively, of course) to see what words came to us. Some were: fire, strength, abundance, power. Unfortunately her video and audio started to lag, and we weren’t able to fully enjoy the session. 😭 Good news is she’ll be recording a video instead, which we’ll post here tomorrow!! For now, here’s a poem Inka has written and shared with us. 🥰Send us yours as well, and we’ll share them on our stories!
