Hormonal changes can have a strong influence on our body, mind and soul. And they can also affect our lives and everyday life.
HYT is a natural and holistic approach to reactivating hormone production. Once women hit 35 our hormone levels start to drop and eventually we enter the menopause. Hormonal fluctuations occur very frequently during a woman’s menopause. The body prepares for a new phase of life! Now the focus is no longer on family and working life, but on finding one’s way back to oneself. However, many women do not feel quite as positive side effects during this phase of the body’s changeover. There are all kinds of side effects to the imbalances that occur during this time: hot flushes, emotional instability, insomnia, anxiety, weight gain, fatigue, low libido, stiffness in joints, depression, migraine…and the list goes on. But even in younger years hormone fluctuations are not rare, because even today’s sometimes stressful living conditions or our environment can strongly influence our hormone world. This can lead to headaches, mood swings, hot flushes or even infertility. Here Hormone Yoga can help!
Hormone Yoga has a positive effect on our energy and activates the hormones!
Completely without medication, the hormone yoga can bring us back into our hormonal balance and stimulate hormone production or even completely or partially eliminate the discomfort! Yoga’s focus on breathing, meditation and poses has a positive effect on the endocrine system and helps balance hormones when they’re off kilter. The pineal gland excretes the melatonin hormone that regulates sleep patterns. Certain yoga poses stimulate the pineal gland. Yoga can decrease hot flashes by 31 percent, according to one study. Carbs stimulate the release of the feel-good brain chemical serotonin. Yoga stimulates serotonin and stops the cravings before they start.
The hormone yoga was developed by Dinah Rodriguez, a psychologist from Brazil. Her yoga has a positive effect on hormone production in the thyroid gland, kidneys and ovaries. An important role is played by the interaction of breathing, asanas, mind and soul.
Hormone Yoga can be practiced by anyone. The Asanas are always individually adjusted to the participants, so that at the end everyone can do the exercises at home. Regular practice is important to achieve the desired results. At the beginning you should do a few exercises every day, gradually you can start to practice Hormone Yoga about 2 times a week.
Hormone Yoga is based on a mixture of traditional Hatha Yoga and Kundalini Yoga. Especially important is the activation breathing technique from Kundalini Yoga. With this a flow of energy is formed, summarized and then directed specifically into the individual hormone-forming organs.
We wish all those who try this special yoga a lot of joy and the desired success.
