Hormone Yoga Therapy
Hormone Yoga is a specially designed and very specific sequence of yoga poses with pranayama and visualisation techniques. The yoga sequence balances your hormones by stimulating the glands responsible for producing them: ovaries, thyroid, pituitary, and adrenal.
Dinah Rodrigues initially created this yoga practice for herself to cope with her own menopause symptoms and when her gyn admired her glowing health at age 63, she decided to share. Once she began teaching the practice and seeing result in other women, she realised that, in fact, the pracitce not only reduced menopause symptoms, but also boosted fertility, and eliminated other symptoms associated with the menstrual cycle. In addition to these benefits, the daily sequence also provides a powerful boost of energy, which is why we suggest you do this practice in the morning. Dinah discovered through research that, in fact, the practice does stimulate certain glands to produce more hormones promoting better hormone balance and more positive energy.
To read a detailed explanation of the practice, see Dinah's page, explaining HYT.
The practice is a series of traditional yoga asanas in which we practice a vigorous pranayama (stimulating breathing practice), and finally use a Tibetan circulation of energy technique to more the energy to the targeted glands for each pose. The results are real and impressive, the only catch is that the practice has to be undertaken with commitment - that is, to reach the full benefits of the practice, one must do the sequence five days per week.... the tool is there, will you use it?
