Our hormones govern a multitude of functions and impact every aspect of our well-being. The body uses hormones as chemical messengers to control our metabolism, psychological state and reproductive cycle. Any imbalance in these hormones can be the root cause of many health issues such as premenstrual tension, stress, back problems, fatigue and insomnia.

Throughout the winter, our hormonal structure adapts to the changing environment around us. Therefore, we should consider modifying our well-being regime to reflect what our body requires. Traditional Chinese & Asian medicine was developed to work in harmony with the changing seasons to keep the body and mind balanced throughout the year. As the festive season begins, our stress hormone Cortisol will increase to help us organise and prepare for this busy time of year. We require a certain amount of Cortisol to perform daily tasks and remain motivated and focused but too much cortisol can create imbalances in our digestive and nervous systems.

Studies have shown that regular yoga practise is a great tool to balance our hormonal cycle. It is proven that on-going yoga practice creates positive changes within the brain which controls our hormonal functions. By enhancing our brain waves, we achieve clarity, focus and this in-turn balances the production of chemicals produced in the body. The emphasis of the workshop is to give students the required techniques to integrate into their well-being regime in order to achieve the optimum benefits. At the end of the workshop, Ushvani invites guests to stay for further discussion and light refreshments will be served.
