Hormonal imbalance can be experienced in different stages of our lives: Puberty, PMS Premenstrual Syndrome, PMDD Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, Pregnancy, Post Pregnancy, Perimenopause, Menopause,  Poly-Cystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), Hysetrectomy, Oophorectomy, Adrenal Fatigue, Hyperthyriodism, Hypothyroidism, and many other conditions. This imbalance can lead to depression, anxiety, hot flashes, irritability, headaches, mood swings, chronic fatigue syndrome, irregular monthly cycles, low back ache, fertility issues, poor immune function, blood sugar imbalances, weight gain or loss, crying spells and further symptoms that most of the times are overlooked or not linked to a lack of hormonal balance.

Some women are terribly affected by these symptoms and don’t have the proper support to deal with the conditions they are experiencing. Yoga Therapy can provide dramatic improvement and wellness can be restored with diligent practice alone or working in synergy with your main practitioner. 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 can be alleviated.

Every Yoga Therapy treatment pathway begins with a client’s health assessment session. Most of my clients present several different symptoms: for example after pregnancy a woman might suffer from depression, lower back pain and weight gain so we build a program that addresses all the components.

The key is to understand the endocrine system, and learn what each gland is doing for us. Then, we can choose to incorporate into our daily practice yoga poses that target specific glands and hormones, depending on what symptoms we are experiencing. In addition, we can choose a practice that helps activate the parasympathetic nervous system, providing general stress reduction.

While each of the glands in the endocrine system has specific functions, and can cause specific symptoms if out of balance, it is also important to note that the entire endocrine system is just that – a system. As such, one gland that is out of balance is likely to affect other glands in the system, as well. So, while we can choose yoga poses that impact specific glands, it is also important to do the kind of yoga practice that helps to keep the entire system balanced.
For clients that present the same discomforts I also offer group classes. Group classes are a wonderful way to build a support system and work together with other women towards a mutual goal, the energy is very motivating and offers very powerful results. Both approaches – private classes and group classes – can be combined, if beneficial for the individual situation. No personal medical details will be disclosed in any way during the group classes.
We won’t need any particular tools or props as I will suggest asanas and sequences that can be easily performed with little or no equipment.
