March is Women's Month, which means it is the perfect time for us women to explore our feminine energy, awaken our sensuality and creativity, and incorporate mindfulness, playfulness, and a bit of pampering in our day-to-day life. Below are a few tips on how to get you started, and we've also lined up some recommendations that you can do in the city to help you embrace your femininity and unleash the goddess in you. By Karrie Bitanga

RECOMMENDED: Celebrate women's month at these events and take advantage of IWD promotions in Hong Kong.

1. Get your body moving

Taking care of your physical health by attending dance classes, free-flow movement, or meditation sessions not only boost your mood but attract positivity and good energy within you. 

Try the Goddess Embodiment dance class at Move Studio. The class is a celebration of femininity and self-expression, and focuses on fluidity and self-acceptance instead of dance choreography, which allows you to move without any judgment and be comfortable in your own skin. Facilitated by Lily Chan, the class uses meditation, breath, sound vibrations, music, visualisation, conscious movement, chakra activation, and sacred dance to awaken your inner goddess. You can also grab your best gal to check out the IWD Xtend Barre Classes by Flex Studio x Sweaty Betty. This woman empowerment class brings eight women together for an Xtend Barre full-body workout that combines Pilates and dance. Classes will commence on March 16 (Tuesday), 7.45 pm and March 19 (Friday), 6.30 pm at Flex at One Island South branch and will be available for $300 per person or $500 if you come with a friend. All participants will receive a goodie bag worth up to $900 after attending the class.

2. Allow time for healing, recharging, and self-care

Women are often caught up with everyday tasks and most often neglect to protect our energy. It is important to recognise our needs and nurture our spirit. 

To recharge, try the Japanese energy healing called Reiki therapy. Holistic health clinic Balance Health offers Reiki sessions guided by energy healer Hafsa Khan. Hafsa helps her clients harness old energies from the past, including current traumas or experiences, and guides them in rebalancing the mind, body and spirit, and unblocking negative patterns and limiting beliefs.

Another way to balance your energy is through singing bowl therapy. Singing bowl therapy reduces stress and anxiety with the help of vibrational frequency. It helps align and strengthen women's mental, emotional, and physical state. Try a session at the newly opened studio Singing Bowl Zentral, or attend gong baths hosted by gong master Martha Collard, founder of Red Doors Studio.

If you are in need of deep relaxation, you can check out the newly opened Ikigai studio in Central to try their yoga nidra guided meditation. Their yoga classes with Loretta Teo ends with a long yoga nidra savasana that allows you to go into a state of yogic sleep, putting you into a relaxed consciousness while still being aware and awake.

3. Spend time with other women

Having a good support group or a few friends to fall back on nurtures your soul and recharges your feminine energy. A simple afternoon tea or happy hour with your girlfriends acts as a great therapy when things are not going your way. Indulge in afternoon tea menus with your gal squad at these venues in the city or enjoy a few cocktails at the best drinking spots in town.

You can also take advantage of special International Women's Day events in Hong Kong to celebrate and spend time with your friends. If you're looking for a healthy afternoon delight, book seats at chef Tina Barrat's Ma...and The Seeds of Life ($188 for one guest, $320 for two) and enjoy chitter-chatter with your besties along with some healthy treats like quinoa blinis, keto bread, and chia pudding.

4. Treat yourself to some retail therapy

Rewarding yourself with simple pleasures can definitely lift your energy. Go on a shopping spree for things that make you feel beautiful. Radiate feminine energy through colours, textures, shapes that complement your look and personality. From accessories, beauty care products, and other lifestyle finds, there are various women-owned retail brands in Hong Kong that you can support. Check out Arao, a sustainable and ethical jewellery brand that offers a great selection of golden South sea pearls. Arao Jewellery is available online via thearaolife.com.

5. Make your own pleasure a priority

Awaken your divine feminine goddess by focusing and embracing your own sexual pleasure. Good pleasurable sex is essential for women, you shouldn't be afraid of asserting your wants and needs in sexual matters. Cultivate feminine energy by getting out of your head and stimulating your senses. 

There are many sex-positive toy shops in the city that offer pleasure toys – from wholesome to extreme - that you can enjoy for yourself or experiment with your partner

For IWD, take advantage of some naughty and sweet treats from female-founded intimate toys brand Yverest. In collaboration with bakery Cookie DPT, the brand is offering a cheeky limited-edition pleasure bundle ($899). Each pleasure pack comes with a Tsubomi vibrator and two emoji cookies – in the shape of a peach and an eggplant – in vanilla and taro flavours with white chocolate ganache filling. Order a bundle via yverest.com while supplies last.
