WHAT IS HORMONE YOGA?

WHAT IS HORMONE YOGA?

Since 1992 Dinah Rodriguez, a Yoga Teacher and Dr. of Psychology from Brazil, researches on the effect of certain yoga practices on the endocrine system. From these studies she developed a set of specific exercises to reactivate hormone production and recommended them to be practiced from the age of 35 to prevent menopausal symptoms. In women younger than 35, Hormone Yoga helps to improve fertility and to remove symptoms of PMS. 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.


It can also lessen the chance of osteoporosis or the chance of cardio-vascular diseases later in life.


Hormone Yoga also 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.


It is recommended to practise Hormone Yoga 2-4 times a week for at least 8-12 weeks to see results.
