Menopause begins in the late 40s or early 50s for most women. It usually lasts for a few years.

Though menopause itself is simply the moment that menstruation stops, the transition generally takes several years. This phase is called perimenopause. During perimenopause, fluctuating estrogen and progesterone levels can trigger a myriad of uncomfortable symptoms. Among the most common are hot flashes, anxiety and irritability, insomnia, fatigue, depression and mood swings, memory lapses, and an erratic menstrual cycle.

Many women have found that yoga, including restorative and supportive poses, can ameliorate the undesirable side effects of menopause, including hot flashes and more.

When dealing with hot flashes and hormonal shifts, try these yoga for menopause poses to relieve symptoms:

  1. Big toe pose

  2. Bridge pose

  3. Dolphin Pose

  4. Downward - facing dog

  5. Bound angle pose
