Yoga for Menopause
Focus on: Digestion & Pelvic Floor
Is your digestion on the fritz?
Menopause and Peri-menopause can cause your digestion to change due to fluctuating hormones. You may suffer from bloating, indigestion, acid reflux, painful abdominal cramps, constipation, diarrhea, weight gain, flatulence, and nausea.
Sounds fun, right? 😵💫
I hear you.
The good news:
Yoga can help “move things along” with your digestion by bringing energy and prana into the pelvic area; mainly the lower abdominals, the hips, and the pelvic floor.
The pelvic floor holds all of the pelvic organs (uterus, vagina, bowel & bladder).
👉 If you’ve ever laughed really hard or sneezed and a little pee came out…that’s your pelvic floor’s fault.
In this practice,
we’ll do poses that strengthen and stretch the pelvic floor by working the hips and surrounding muscles.
Balances on one leg are included as they not only strengthen the core and hips, but also strengthen the joints.
Note: If balance is an issue for you, support yourself by either holding a wall or use a chair.
Keep in mind, Yoga is supportive during this personal adjustment.
It is not intended to cure or solve these issues but instead to provide some relief.
👉 No props needed unless you want ‘em.
🌟 Good for ALL Levels.
⚡️If your balance isn’t great, practice near a wall or use a chair.
