Get Fit & Strong Beat Perimenopause & Menopause

Many women experience a range of negative physical and psychological symptoms at this time including brain fog, mood and sleep disorders, irritability and the dreaded weight gain. These changes are all attributed to changing hormone levels and it is widely agreed that the best way to limit the negative effects of menopause and perimenopause is to reduce stress and the effects of cortisol on your body.

Yoga can help manage these physical and psychological symptoms. It can also improve long-term physical and mental health in post menopause when the depletion of oestrogen can lead to brittle bones, muscle loss, and the risk of cardiovascular disease. 

The main benefits of yoga are:

  1. Reduces stress and improves sleep.
  2. Relief from menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes, joint and muscle aches.
  3. Rebalances your emotions, such as anxiety and low mood.
  4. Restores depleted energy caused by insomnia and fatigue.
  5. Reinvigorates a sluggish metabolism, tones and strengthens muscles, builds bone density, balances and boosts heart health.
  6. Reinforces positive thoughts that improve self-esteem.

As a result, yoga can help you to feel good about yourself, and when we feel good, we are more able to make healthy decisions about our lifestyle.  However, the greatest benefits of yoga will be experienced if you include it as part of a holistic approach to health and wellbeing that includes nutrition, lifestyle and medical advice from your doctor and other health professionals.
