Yoga to Address Hormonal Fluctuations

Practicing yoga can help address underlying hormonal changes that produce anxiety and moodiness. Stress, poor nutrition, and hormonal shifts are associated with:

Low libido

Fatigue

Depression

Mood swings

These tend to deplete the adrenal glands. During menopause the ovaries stop producing progesterone and estrogen; however, estrogen continues to be manufactured by a number of other organs, such as the adrenal glands and kidneys. Practicing yoga poses such as the Half Spinal Twist, lying on the floor and bringing your knees to your chest, or backward poses such as the Bow Pose helps to stimulate the kidneys and adrenals.
