YOGA FOR MENSTRUATION

In my new YouTube video, I am showing you 8 yoga asanas which you can do when menstruating.

You might feel low in energy, or you might have extreme pain, your mood changes, you feel tired, bloated, or you just want to stay in bed for the first few days of your period. This is what all women have to deal with.

This is an important time for women to listen to our bodies, to reconnect, feel grounded and relaxed.
If you do want to do some yoga though, you should avoid strong asanas particularly strong backbends, twists, arm balances, standing positions that put a lot of stress on the abdominal and pelvic region and inversions, because they are against the natural flow and this is why it is so controversial.

Gentle forward bends are nice as they give a light massage to the abdominal and pelvic region
and bring calmness to the mind.

Pranayama, breathing techniques are very useful during menstruation, yoga nidra and meditation. They help to feel more grounded and helps to calm the mind.

I hope you enjoy this yoga sequence.

Namaste,
Zeynep
