Yoga for Menopause: Cool Down, Chill Out

Yoga for Menopause: Cool Down, Chill Out

for Hot Flashes, Irritability, & Anxiety Plus it’s Wrist Friendly

If everything bugs you, you’re hot, cranky, and just don’t wanna, it’s time to Cool Down & Chill Out with Yoga for Menopause. 
This no standing, gentle, cooling practice helps shut out outside stress.

When irritability, anxiety, hot flashes, and excess energy creep in, a cooling practice, like this one, is way more effective in soothing your symptoms than an active, heating yoga flow.  

Longer holds allow you to not only connect with your breath and feel more grounded but to SLOW DOWN. 
It’s so important to let the nervous system settle when we feel frazzled. 

👉 Even if you’re NOT menopausal but you’re feeling cranky, irritable and need a personal “time out”,
this practice is just what you need.

👉 Grab a Blanket or Large Towel and roll it up.
🌟 Good for ALL Levels.  
🖐 Wrist Friendly means little or no pressure on the wrists but gripping and grabbing are possible.

All in about 20 minutes.

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.

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. 
🙏🏼Namaste my friends🙏🏼
