In this blend of tutorial and practice, Kathryn explains how you can use a daily practice of asana, pranayama, and deep relaxation to support you during perimenopause. She also offers lifestyle and nutrition suggestions to help you feel nourished during this time of transition.
The practice begins with krama breathing (a version of three-part breath) and diaphragmatic breathing, then moves into moon salutations and a dynamic flow to balance and strengthen mind and body. You’ll finish with a long hold in a reclined twist and a variation of legs up the wall that will increase your sense of steadiness, allowing for deeper relaxation.
