” As I grew more into my yoga practice I understood the impact an imbalanced hormonal system has on our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. I learned that hormones coordinate the process of growth, metabolism and fertility and influences the immune system and our behavior. I also became aware that external factor like stress, lack of exercise, the food (diet high in refined carbohydrates, sugar and fat) we consume and the products that we use influence the hormones as well.
When in the menopause or suffering from pms or pcos symptoms such as acne, depression, migraine, memory loss, anxiety, tiredness, libido decrease, hot flushes, bloating, exhaustion, infertility and osteoporosis may sound familiar.
Having mood swings myself and symptoms that come with menopause, friends and yoga students who had difficulty in conceiving inspired me to get certified in the Hormone Yoga Therapy (HYT) of Dinah Rodrigues. “
