About the event

Hormone Yoga

Workshop with Tanja Forcellini

November 23 / 2:30 p.m. – 5:45 p.m

Hormone yoga is a therapeutic form of yoga and helps all women to balance their hormone levels. With targeted hormone yoga exercises, special breathing techniques and energy management, we activate and harmonize the endocrine system (organs and tissues that produce hormones) and the entire hormone balance. This supports women going through the menopause, as well as younger women, in bringing their hormonal balance into balance and keeping it there - ideal for increasing general well-being.

Hormone yoga has a supportive effect on symptoms during menopause, when trying to have children, when coming off the pill, alleviates PMS symptoms and has a regulating effect when the thyroid gland is underactive.

Regular practice refines our perception of the cycle and hormonal changes in the body. Among other things, the results bring improvements or elimination of symptoms associated with hormone fluctuations such as mood swings, hair loss, hot flashes, sleep disorders, migraines, etc.

Hormone yoga is suitable for

Women and girls with strong hormonal fluctuations, irregular cycles, heavy bleeding, pain before/during menstruation and no menstruation

Tanya Forcellini

During a trip through the Far East in 1999, Tanja Ashtanga got to know and appreciate Vinyasa Yoga. On her personal life path, connected with many questions, yoga has led her to the path of answers. To the answers that are deep inside. In 2004, Tanja trained as a yoga teacher at Centered Yoga in Asia and earned the Yoga Alliance certificate. In addition, following her own pregnancy and birth in 2008, she completed Birthlight UK's Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training. After that, life increasingly led her back to stillness – stillness moved her from yoga to meditation. Both are gifts that she is happy to share with her students. The loving and conscious handling and the mindful perception of one's own body are the focus of Tanja's classes. This as well as the connection between breath and movement. Since 2017, Tanja has been in further training to become an MBSR teacher (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction MBSR / stress management through mindfulness according to Prof. Jon Kabat Zinn) at the Center for Mindfulness in Zurich. In addition, she completed the hormone balance teacher training with Salome Noah.

Since Tanja became a mother herself at the end of 2008, she has been aware of how much strength, self-confidence and physical and mental relaxation yoga and meditation give her every day. She feels grateful to everyone who shares her path with her in a curious and present way - be it on the mat or in the middle of life.

Tanja deepens her own meditation and yoga practice at retreats and further training with internationally renowned teachers. She expands her spiritual practice through the challenges of everyday life and especially during her stays in the ashram in northern India.
