Hormonal yoga originated in Latin America and was invented by physician and psychologist Dina Rodriguez. During long studies, it turned out that yoga for female hormones is very useful, and that special breathing exercises combined with poses related to the tone of the lower body help to stabilize the hormonal background. Such exercises help to help women painful feelings that arise during PMS, as well as go through menopause more easily.
Yoga to restore the hormonal background
Hormonal yoga is especially important after the age of thirty-five, when the female body requires a much greater effort to maintain hormonal balance. Due to a gradual decrease in estrogen, a woman can become stressed and may become more irritable, nervous and restless. Low estrogen affects all the functions of the female body: headaches, heart palpitations and digestive problems arise. The woman’s sexual sphere experiences negative influence: uterus and mammary glands can shrink, menstrual cycle is disturbed.
Hormonal yoga exercises are aimed at stimulation of pituitary gland, ovaries, adrenal glands and thyroid gland. So yoga for female hormones can have a positive effect on the whole body and the emotional state of a woman.
