Hormone Yoga Therapy (HYT) is a holistic technique developed by Brazilian Dinah Rodrigues, consisting of a series of exercises combined with strong breathing techniques and circulation of energy. Hormone Yoga Therapy (re)activates the hormone production and consequently eliminates stress and the symptoms of too low/too high hormone levels. If you suffer from any of the following symptoms: sleep disorder, skin problems, depression, low energy, low sex drive, weight gain, emotional disorders such as excessive fear/ panic/anger, high stress levels, lack of concentration, infertility, menopause symptoms or andropause symptoms, carpel tunnel syndrome, frozen shoulder, knee problems, than you might question your hormonal balance.
You're considering medication? You might try this natural method first.
Dinah developed a series of exercises for women, a series for men and a series for people with diabetes. I trained with her in 2017 for the 3 different series and I am delighted to bring this natural therapy to you. I practice the series few times a week and surely can feel the benefits: at 61 and post-menopause, I feel very strong emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually. There were times when it was not like that, in the beginning of menopause when I was advised to take hormone replacement pills. Luckily I experience now overall health, practicing HYT and even more: being inspired by Dinah who is 94 and teaching every day!

WHY HORMONE YOGA THERAPY?
The series takes 30 minutes: first 7 warming up exercises with bastrika breathing creating a massage of the organs in the belly. Then follow the dynamic postures with bastrika breathing and circulation of energy to the glands, can be ovaries/testes, thyroid, pituitary gland, adrenals, pancreas. We finish with yoga nidra (relaxation) and cleaning of the energy channels in arms, legs and spine. A handout is provided to practice at home.
The series can be learned during a day workshop or during weekly 1 hour lessons. Practicing the series 3 to 4 times a week will help your body to find a new hormonal balance and overall health, without medication.
HORMONE YOGA THERAPY is beneficial for:
WHAT HAPPENS IN A HORMONE YOGA THERAPY SESSION?
The yoga targets specific hormonal glands namely the pituitary gland, the thyroid, the adrenals and the gonads (ovaries and testes). Those glands work closely together in a circuit. If one gland produces too much or too little of any given hormones, the others will produce more or less as well. Eventually the whole circuit system gets unbalanced and creates the symptoms mentioned above.
The breathing and dynamic postures massage the inner organs and the glands, while the circulation of energy helps to visualize the glands.
