Yoga for Menopause

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.

DETAILS:
👉 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.


Affirmations in this practice:
💚 I let go and allow life to flow through me. 💚
Repeat it until you believe it.


  Enjoy! Be well. 
  Remember to breathe.

Inversion Free Opt. in 25 min

Are you in need of some release in your heart and hips?

This 25 min Open Heart, Open Hips Vinyasa Flow with Inversion Free Options works to open these emotional centers of the body for full release.


Opening the heart and opening the hips may seem disjointed in their connectivity but in fact, they are intrinsically connected.
The hips help us literally move forward in life, one step at a time. When we feel fear or another emotion that holds us back, the hips may reveal this with physical aches and pains.
The heart center encompasses our chest, upper back, shoulders and armpits, and arms. When we experience heartache or loss of any kind, any of these areas could develop pain just like the hips can.


Details:

I’ll be performing this practice Inversion Free but you do you.

👉 No props needed unless you want ‘em.
(Inversion free friends – use them for Savasana)
🌟 Good for Experienced Level.
🌟 Good for Seasoned Level.

FYI
You may experience some emotions arise during or after this practice. Be kind to yourself if emotions come up that you weren’t expecting. Spend time with it to allow them to fully release. You’ll feel lighter afterward.

 Enjoy! Be well. 
 Remember to breathe.
