welcome to Menstrala school

Founded to provide Menstrual Cycle-related resources
empowering education + events,
art + advocacy for all things
Menstrala ~ the great cycle of renewal.

~ Menstrala ~

A term coined by artist, Vanessa Tiegs, in 2000
as the neologism (new word) that refers to a global art movement
that affirms the hidden forbidden bright red cycle of renewal.


~ Education + Offers ~

Menstrala School opened on the Full Moon of October 2019, marking our flagship year to certify Menstrual Cycle Awareness Educators. The curriculum, ‘Seasons of the Cycle’ was developed over a decades worth of research, personal study, and experiential treatments by Ally Rugge and finalized in 2016.

The certification program also includes the study and application of the Phasic Ritual Method, coined + created in collaboration with MCA Educator, Sheri Hupfer. Phasic Ritual offers a more informed + holistic approach to the Menstrual Cycle known as ‘Cycle Connection’, rather than the more archaic approaches that focus on just a few aspects: period tracking, fertility awareness, rhythm and birth control methods.
