As women, the care and nurturing of our vagina is a fundamental component of our basic wellbeing. The yoni (our sacred portal) is what gives us life and allows us to give life. Throughout the life of a woman, the vagina goes through dramatic transformations - from puberty to periods, pleasure, infections, birth, and menopause. We all experience many of these shifts and transitions, and yet many of us do not actually know how to optimally care for our vaginas throughout the stages of our lives. By awareness and recognition of the phases we are in or approaching, we can better prepare to nurture this essential part of our beings.
