What is Hormone Yoga
HY is a way to balance your hormones naturally and holistically.
It is based in science and physiology without the side effects of Hormone Replacement Therapy.
HY is a set sequence of dynamic yoga postures, dynamic breathing techniques, Tibetan energy techniques, and yoga nidra.
The focus is specifically on the ovaries, thyroid, para-thyroids, hypophysis and adrenals.
Hormone Yoga Therapy, HYT, was created by Dinah Rodrigues, a Brazilian psychologist and yoga therapist.
Check out Dinah Rodrigues, and her book, HERE.
Why is it different than other dynamic yoga practices?
HY is put together using a specific sequence of dynamic yoga postures and strong abdominal breathing which stimulates and activates the glands through massage and compression. We then move the energy using Tibetan energy techniques and reinforce the physical work. The results aren’t the same if you skip some of the steps or exercises.
Who should practice HY?
Most Women over 35.
If you don’t have any symptoms, this practice may prevent them!
HY helps with:
PMS, Peri-menopause, premature menopause, some infertility issues, polycystic ovaries (PCOS), loss of menstruation, some forms of osteoporosis, incontinence or leaking, under-active thyroid, hair loss, dry skin, acne, brittle nails, carpal tunnel, prolapse, skin tags, body hair, hot flashes, genital dryness, sex drive, weight management, energy levels, sleep, feeling grounded, happiness, emotional stability, reactivity, clarity, confidence, strengthening your immune system and so much more.
How long does it take to practice?
It will take you approximately 30 minutes, 4-7 times a week, once you have learned the technique.
HY & Stress Reduction
Stress is a leading cause of disease and unhappiness and it also affects our hormones. There is an important component to HY that focuses on learning techniques for stress reduction. There are many practices of different lengths to suit your schedule.
Once you’ve taken the workshop, you can come watch our HY community grow and practice with those just learning and those who have been practicing for months. We will support each other in person and on our private FaceBook page.
