Hormone Yoga Therapy (HYT) for women is a natural and holistic method created by Brazilian psychologist and Yoga Therapist, Dinah Rodrigues. HYT is a dynamic form of Yoga Therapy, whereby the objective is to reactivate in a natural way the hormone production of the endocrine glands of women: ovaries, thyroid, pituitary gland and adrenals. HYT combines elements of classical Hatha Yoga, Kundalini Yoga and Tibetan energy circulation techniques.
HYT consists of a special series of dynamic yoga exercises (asanas) to reactivate hormone production and, as a consequence, it eliminates most symptoms of hormonal imbalances. Asanas are accompanied by intense breathing techniques (pranayama), concentration, visualization and relaxation (Yoga Nidra). Regular practice helps to harmonize the hormonal system and consequently eliminate the symptoms of low hormone levels.
In this 2 day workshop, you will learn a series of HYT techniques to enable you to do your own home practice. A handout will be provided outlining the series. Once learned, daily practice takes approximately 30 minutes. HYT exercises are very simple and suitable for everyone, and leave you feeling rejuvenated and energetic. No previous yoga experience is needed.
Hormone Yoga Therapy is recommended for
- Women from 35 years of age as a preventative therapy, due to the decreasing ovarian activity and an associated gradual decrease in hormone production of the two main female hormones: estrogen and progesterone.
- Women of all ages with symptoms of low hormones: difficulty achieving pregnancy; polycystic ovaries; menstrual disorders; premenstrual stress syndrome (PMS); ovarian cysts and premature menopause.
- Middle-aged women who wish to eliminate or alleviate the unpleasant symptoms of the onset of menopause, such as hot flashes, insomnia, night sweats, emotional instability, depression, headaches, difficulty concentrating, remembering, decreased libido, etc.
