HI Steph,

Thank you for answering so quickly, I really appreciate that! I thought of asking my mom but she had a hysterectomy at an early age....she didn't go through a natural stage. I don't take any medications but I do have ear trouble and more so recently so that gives me an idea. I'm fine until I try to stand "on one leg" then the trouble starts! And this is something "new"-didn't happen until recently.... Hummm I'm going to investigate this further.

I think that discussing yoga for perimenopause is important because there are SO many women out there that find themselves in this stage of life and are completely confused as to what is happening. I find also that doctors really don't have a clue as to deal with the barrage of symptoms that afflict "peri" women. This is something that I have read often on different peri sites and have heard form countless women. I'm not a "pill" taker and would rather find natural remedies for aliments-the doctors that I have seen seem to want to put me on one pill or another.

Yoga has been my "medicine". I will say that were it not for yoga and meditation during this time of my life - I might have been in serious mental trouble. Asana has also helped me to get a grip on the physical symptoms. Quite honestly, yoga and meditation have saved my life. I am living proof that yoga asana does help to regulate hormonal balance - I see the results in my life. So does my husband.

So anyhow....maybe we should rename this thread "yoga for perimenopause"..?? I actually want to dedicate a portion of my teaching yoga specifically to women who are going through peri-I know that it's a really hard time of life for many of us-yoga can bring relief and balance back to a women who feels like she is slipping into dark hole and feels like she has no control over it!ok- nuff said for now-looking forward to hearing from you and other women-and men too I guess if they have any insight into this area....NamasteZazenyoga (ZY)
