Menopause is marked by a number of unsavory symptoms that can crop up without warning. A change in the body's hormone production can cause weight gain, anxiety, depression, fatigue, mild memory loss and insomnia. Yoga seeks to gently coax the body into flexible positions that will get the blood flowing and allow all of the body's systems to blend merrily together. Attending yoga class at least twice each week will provide very real benefits, especially for women who have been suffering from sleeping problems. Yoga may even allow women to avoid hormonal replacement therapy (HRT), which is associated with increased instances of breast cancer, stroke, and coronary problems. When it comes to health, natural stress-reduction techniques are always the way to go.
