In today's 70 minute Yin Yoga practice we are focusing on bringing balance to your endocrine system - the system that handles all of your hormones! Your endocrine system, located throughout your body, is comprised of many glands producing much needed hormones that regulate your growth, sleep, circulation, energy levels, temperature and SO much more. These glands include the pituitary, pineal, thyroid, parathyroid, spleen, pancreas, adrenals and reproductive organs. Long term stress or illness can lead to imbalances in these glands/organs and in turn lead to excess or insufficient hormone releases that can affect your entire body in a million different ways. Bringing these into balance and keeping them there is our goal today!
The best ways to balance hormones is to practice pranayama (breath regulation), meditation and slow, mindful movement. That is EXACTLY what we are going to do in this practice. Join me!
