Yoga

I’ve found that a consistent yoga practice has enhanced my physical well being as well as my outlook on life.  I alternate the focus of my yoga routine based on which areas of my body need attention at that time.

After a stressful day at work, a centering routine is usually best .  Poses like mountain pose and warrior pose are great beginning poses to explore.  During your menstrual cycle, you may find that routines that address the spine and pelvis are helpful (During your menstrual cycle, inversion poses should be avoided). Seated poses are wonderful for relaxing the pelvis.  Lying prone, bending your knees, and resting your legs to the side provides tremendous spinal release in a very gentle way.  I believe that spinal health is a critical element to addressing and reducing side effects from fibroids.  To maximize the benefits of yoga, a consistent practice is best.

Yoga balances and supports the internal organs.  I alternate between classes in my area and videos that I use at home.

I look forward to your feedback on which forms of exercise you find healing and helpful.

Namaste,
Sateria
