Hormone Yoga Therapy
for Menopause and Hormonal Health
What is Hormone Yoga?
Hormone Yoga Therapy is a dynamic yoga, which not only increases vitality and well-being, it stimulates the female glands, hormones and the natural estrogen production in the ovaries.
Since 1992 Dinah Rodrigues, a Yoga Teacher and Dr. of Psychology from Brasil, researches on the effect of certain yoga practices on the endocrine system. From these studies she developed a set of specific exercises to reactivate the hormone production and recommends them to be practiced from the age of 35 to prevent Menopausal symptoms.
It has also shown to lessens the chance of later ailments like Osteoporosis or the chance for cardio-vascular diseases. In younger women it helps to improve fertility and to remove premenstrual symptoms, in men it helps to improve testosterone levels and prostate health.
Over time the practice has also shown to be beneficial for most other hormonal imbalances, like Thyroid Dysfunctions, Diabetes Type 1 & 2 or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.
Moreover Hormone Yoga promotes a positive attitude towards the changes of Menopause in women, to be recognised as a natural and valuable phase leading to wisdom and maturity.
A time in which new energies are set free and women can take more time for their own spiritual growth.
