Yoga to Support Women through Life Transitions

When practiced appropriately, yoga can offer many benefits to a woman's health and wellbeing. The physiological changes that women experience, for some can bring about physical and mental discomfort impacting on their quality of life. Consider the stages of; puberty, preconception, pregnancy, post pregnancy, pre menopause, menopause, post menopause and reflect on the sheer volume of hormonal changes a woman can experience in a lifetime.  And then consider the lack of knowledge, support and space that exists for women to respond to these changes in a healthy reverend manner.  The general benefits of Yoga practice have been extensively researched, but not all practice approaches are appropriate for individual needs and during particular physiological stages.  Strong, heat building practices when there is already internal heat can create dryness and when this is done habitually without adjustment to preserve the body energy, there are longterm affects according to the Ayurvedic system of health. In this system, the energetic state, which will express itself as e.g. pain, heat, aches, anxiety, insomnia.... can be addressed with a Yoga practice that is aimed at preserving energy and maintaining balance through appropriately applied practices.
