You asked: What does yoga have to do with hormonal health?
Yogi chickadee, if you are of a certain age it won’t be much of a surprise that between the ages of 35 and 50 us girls experience our worst psychological wellbeing due to hormone issues. Hands up if that’s you. Mine’s up there too.
What’s happening here? Let’s take a quick lesson in biology.
Hormones are chemical messengers that are jettisoned into your body by your endocrine system. And get this… they influence:
- Your emotions
- How you eat
- How you fight off illness
- Your reproductive cycle
- Your sleep cycles
- Your behaviour
- How you react to stress
With a mindful lifestyle and a regular yoga practice you can help prevent hormones from hijacking your health, wellbeing, love life, the whole ‘shebang’.
