Perimenopause: Managing Irritability

Enjoy this opportunity to move, sigh, and let go.

Support yourself during perimenopause with this practice that’s both cooling and warming and designed for all ayurvedic constitutions (vata, pitta, and kapha). 

You’ll do sitali (cooling breath) and soft ujjayi breathing (victory breath) before moving into a moderately paced flow. Along the way, you’ll pause in child’s pose, where you’ll breathe slowly to become more attuned to your mental and physical state. You’ll also do a chair pose sequence, a moving bridge flow, legs up the wall, and other stabilizing movements. Kathryn explains how the poses and movements can be soothing for the different doshas and how to decrease irritability with mindful practice of them. 

And...there’s a (literally) sweet surprise at the end!
