Hormone yoga is interesting for everyone who is interested in motivation, psychology, and neurobiology. So actually for all of us - because haven't you already asked yourself why we humans do what we do?
Without hormones as neurotransmitters we wouldn't get out of bed in the morning and can't fall asleep in the evening - but we often only learn how important hormones and their tasks are in our body when something gets out of balance: substances or activities that release dopamine can lead to addiction, a lack of melatonin causes us to experience sleepless nights, or dwindling estrogen levels leaves a desire to have children unfulfilled or causes all kinds of undesirable side effects with the onset of menopause.
In this training, you will learn how your yoga practice influences your hormone levels and how your endocrine system is linked with the Chakra system. You will learn Hormone Yoga Therapy according to Dinah Rodrigues and moreover, you will discuss what it means to be a woman and how to support women throughout their regular cycle as well as throughout the different stages of their lives.
After the training, you will be equipped with a deep understanding of physical as well as emotional human anatomy. You will be able to apply knowledge from the yoga system as well as from Traditional Chinese Medicine.

The module is for anyone with or without yoga experience and background. Previous experience is definitely beneficial and necessary if the module is taken out of motivation to teach Hormone yoga yourself or to use the findings (therapeutically) in one-on-one support.
