During menopause its a great help to use bolsters and have support. Resting your head on a bolster helps cool and energize the brain and relaxes the cronial bones. Widespread forward bend refreshes the brain and soothes the adrenals.

As you lie, bask over the bolster with your spine and chest supported and your head on the floor, your circulation is increased through the adrenals, thyroid and kidneys. In-version poses are very important during menopause, because the adrenals take over some of the work of the ovaries.

Lying with your back on pillows or bolsters in various positions opens the chest, and helps your breathe deepen, and serves as an antidote to depression. Besides yoga poses, diet, meditation and breathing plays a big role as well. A yogic diet plays an important role in keeping the weight down, the bowels moving and the prana levels high.

Meditation provides a time for resting and rejuvenating the nervous and endocrine system and for generation of prana in pranamaya kosha. The meditation should release and process feelings. It should balance the needs, energy and relaxation.

Meditation practice reduces physical, emotional and mental problems. Meditation can help for chronic conditions. It helps to become aware of our needs, with regular meditation, we can see our lifestyle and habits effect our body.

Meditation requires mental exercises, relaxation, introversion, concentration, self reflection. And the aim is to cultivate greater AWARENESS.

Yogic breathing and meditation can help bring oxygen to the brain, and can help slow metabolism. And help send energy to areas of the brain where it is most needed.

To have good and easy menopause, to ease the emotions, negativity, to be healthy, to keep the bones, heart, body, mind and spirit strong, one should be conscious of their diet, yoga, meditation, breathing, and spiritual attitude.
