Yoga for Menopause

Hormonal fluctuations accompany women’s passages into each new biological stage of life.

During perimenopause, the ovaries and pituitary glands engage in a kind of tug-of-war: a frenetic struggle which causes erratic hormonal fluctuations, too much estrogen, which revs the body’s motors, followed by spikes of progesterone, which slows the body.

Practicing restorative postures, cooling forward bends, supported inversions, and meditation brings relief from anxiety and irritability, relaxes and calms the nervous system and improves the functioning of the endocrine system.

Yoga for menopause will help restore balance and harmony in the body and mind, bringing clarity and wellbeing without challenging or heating the body.
