Yoga during Menstruation



Menstruation is a normal part of life. Uterine contractions can cause intense cramps in the lower abdomen and lower back during a time. Yoga will help you relax by releasing endorphins.


  1. To relieve pain, stretch out your lower body and back.
  2. Forward bends, inside hip openers, and soft twists will also assist with menstrual symptoms.
  3. Inversions, according to others, can induce engorgement in the uterine blood vessels, which can enhance blood flow, and should be prevented over a cycle. 
  4. Inversions, on the other hand, are recommended in B.K.S. Iyengar's book The Path to Holistic Health over a time to minimize blood flow. 


You should pay attention to your own body and make decisions based on that. If you don't feel up to it, try a slower-paced yoga pose routine.
