Have you ever been curious about yoga for PCOS? Yoga can be beneficial for health and hormones, which is why today’s Sam is joined today by fellow registered dietitian, Kendra Tolbert.
Sam and Kendra begin the episode by chatting about Kendra’s journey to focusing on fertility and reproductive health, and how yoga became a part of that. They also discuss the original intentions behind yoga, and how “yoga culture” has shifted this to focusing on aesthetics, weight loss, and getting in an “intense workout”.
We also move into talking about the health benefits of yoga and how yoga can be a tool to improve PCOS symptoms and hormone imbalances.
In this episode, we discuss:
- How yoga can help PCOS
- Misconceptions about yoga
- Tips for starting a yoga practice if it feels intimidating
- Advice for creating consistency with movement
