The basic principles to be followed in a woman’s yoga practice for reproductive/ endocrine health remain the same at all stages of life. The menstrual practice, the practice during peri-menopause, practice for menstrual irregularities and dysfunctions, and even pregnancy, have to follow these principles to be efficacious.
