Yoga and Essential Oils
Are you open to trying something instead of suffering? What if in 5 minutes you could start to find relief with these 5 Yoga Poses for Hormones.
Are you willing to try it?
When it comes to hormones we can use all the help we can get!
One of the big things I noticed when I first started practicing yoga regularly was how it helps relieve the so-called symptoms of PMS; no cramping, no mood swings… It was night and day between months where I was doing a lot of yoga and times when I had fallen off the wagon so to speak…
As my body has matured I’ve been researching hormones more and more as I find the “symptoms” can become more acute as we enter peri-menopause.
With everything that acts against this vital function, it’s a miracle we can reproduce at all – let alone everything else our hormones control beyond reproduction.
Every day you are bombarded by chemicals that are messing with your natural hormone balance.
These are a few of the key elements of everyday life that are conspiring against your hormones….
• Cosmetics & Body Care Products
• Cleaning Supplies
• Scented Candles and Sprays
• Pesticides on your food, in your garden
Add in the compound effect that many of these also throw off your digestion – a key element for producing hormones and we are set up for failure.
It’s no wonder we view the signs that our hormones are out of balance as “normal”.
Yoga is well-posed to help. Research has shown yoga to help with;
• Reducing Stress
• Eliminate Toxins
• Support Digestion
• Stimulate Hormone Glands
When it comes to achieving the first three main goals, really any yoga will help! So keep up with your regular daily practice – it makes a huge difference.
However, some poses can help more than others.
I’ve been “playing with the poses” so to speak and researching what poses can help the most to support the hormonal glands and finding relief from “symptoms”.
When you are pressed for time or are just starting your yoga journey try these five poses to rebalance your hormonal system.
This summer in the Easy Peasy Morning Yoga Series – I’ll be adding a full unit of sequences to help dive into this deeper if this is an area of challenge for you but for now start with these five today.
