YOGA + MENOPAUSE
This series focuses on hormonal health and the stages of hormonal process towards the end of reproductive years commonly known as Menopause. A healthcare professional confirms menopause after a female has had no periods for 12 months in a row. After this, they will no longer be able to become pregnant without assistance.
Healthcare professionals use the term perimenopause to refer to the years before menopause, when hormone levels are changing but menstruation still occurs.
Menopause occurs when ovaries stop making estrogen and other sex hormones. Estrogen levels start to fluctuate in the years before menopause. The changes that lead to menopause happen gradually; there will be disruption in the menstrual cycle, and other changes. This series discusses how yoga can be used to help with the transition of cycle and hormonal changes.
Sex and gender exist on a spectrum. Please note I will use the term “female” to refer to a person’s sex assigned at birth.
