Yoga for Healthy Hormones
What does yoga have to do with your hormones? Plenty! Just about every yoga pose you do has an impact on the hormonal (endocrine) system in your body – making yoga a fabulous way to support this system and keep your hormones healthy. With focus and intention, we can use our yoga practice to keep our hormones balanced, and to help address common symptoms of hormonal imbalance.
How do we recognize when our hormones are out of balance? The symptoms of hormonal imbalance make a long and varied list, including: insomnia, fatigue, mood swings, irregular monthly cycles, PMS, low back ache, low libido, thyroid imbalances and weight gain, fertility issues, poor immune function, hot flashes, anxiety, depression, and blood sugar imbalances, among others.
How can yoga help? If any of these symptoms sound familiar, you are not alone. Many people have come to accept these kinds of symptoms as almost “normal” – just the way things are. But in fact, they can all be linked to hormone imbalances. By choosing yoga poses that work to balance the entire endocrine system, as well as poses that target specific glands in the endocrine system, we can help to bring the hormonal system back into balance. When the hormones are balanced, many of these symptoms are reduced or alleviated. By doing a targeted daily yoga practice, we can improve our sleep, boost our energy level, help regulate our cycles, improve libido, and make us less moody, just to mention a few possible impacts.

2002, after going through my own challenges with fertility. Since
then, I have been offering several Yoga for Fertility classes each
week, as well as retreats, workshops and teacher trainings. To date,
there are over 1,500 “graduates” of my Yoga for Fertility programs,
who are now busy parenting.
