Hormone Yoga (school of Dinah Rodrigues) is the natural alternative to conventional hormone therapies. This Yoga is specifically directed to the female hormone system and glands. It is beneficial for the pituitary gland (hypophysis) ovaries, thyroid and adrenals. Hormone Yoga works mainly with Pranic Energies.
The dynamic Yoga sequences will activate your energy centres. This energy is directed towards the places in the body that are responsible for the balance of female hormones. The dynamic Hormone Yoga sequences are based on:
- Energetic Yoga and Hatha Yoga
- Kundalini Yoga
- The Tibetan technique of to directing energy.
How does it work?
Specific breathing techniques (pranayama) and body postures (asanas) directly massage hormone producing glands. In addition the Tibetan way of directing energy is combined with specific muscle contractions (bandhas) in order to stimulate and activate female hormone production.

For my own hormone inbalance, I chose not to use conventional hormone therapy. I practice Hormone Yoga myself on a regular basis, which makes me feel healthier, more relaxed, and emotionally balanced. My own hormone system experienced an extraordinary correction.
