My 5 questions for you as my next hormone yoga client
Find out if Hormone Yoga is for you. Here are the questions you should ask yourself and answer with a resounding “yes”! And you will look forward to hormone yoga every time and keep it up for several weeks and even months.
With regular practice you will soon feel renewed vitality and a general sense of wellbeing as your whole hormonal system will be more balanced.
But you have to do your part.
0. Let’s assume you’re a woman.
Hormone yoga also works for men and activates their hormone production.
However, to date we have set ourselves the goal of addressing only women. This is just to stay between us, because for some ladies a certain level of trust is very important when it comes to their own body, to talk about it and to let it become the focus of their attention.
1. Want to manage symptoms of the menopause?
Menopause can be accompanied by hot flushes, waking up in the middle of the night, dry skin, waning libido and/or other symptoms.
You can endure it (more or less) in silence.
You can take synthetic hormones.
Or you can decide to reactivate the hormone production yourself. To do this, you boost the blood and other body fluids, stimulating your pituitary gland, thyroid gland and fat tissue to produce oestrogen. This can only be done through physical exercise.
Conscious relaxation of body and mind is also very important, because when the system is calmed, the glands find the necessary rest to produce hormones.
A clear yes to getting active? If so, hormone yoga can help.
2. Can you imagine spending 30 minutes on yoga 3 times a week?
Regular practice is essential for hormone yoga to activate the production of hormones, especially oestrogen. Dinah Rodrigues, the founder of Hormone Yoga, has conducted studies in collaboration with the University of Sao Paolo. Participants exercised up to 5 or 7 times a week for 4 months and their hormone levels increased by up to 300%.
There’s no need overdoing it. 3 times a week for 30 minutes is a good rhythm to feel better after just a few weeks.
Yes, you are willing to practice 3 times a week? Great, then it’s for you.
3. Are you willing to offer physical engagement that goes beyond the movements and breathing of everyday life?
In particular, it is the bellows breathing, also called Bhastrika K.D., which can seem strenuous at first. The lungs, diaphragm and abdomen move in a dynamic rhythm.
Each class also consists of an inverted pose, which means your head is lower than your heart. This can be a shoulder stand (like the candle), but there are also simplified variations that make your blood rush to your head.
Or maybe you have never come into contact with yoga and are not into sports in any other way. No problem – as long as you are willing to try new things and rise beyond yourself.
Yes for new discovery of the body? Then hormone yoga is for you.
4. Do you like to be part of a group?
We meet in live online classes, 3 times a week. Some are in a hurry after class, others have time for a quick chat, exchange experiences or tips for the next holiday.
Yes to practice in a group? Then come join us.
5. Should your oestrogen level be increased?
If you have or have had breast cancer or severe endometriosis, your oestrogen levels must not be increased. In this case, hormone yoga is not indicated.
A clear yes for higher oestrogen levels? Don’t hesitate and join us.
