The  menstrual practice, when done regularly during the days of menstruation, over a period of time, helps address the most commonly seen distressful symptoms of menstruation, such as abdominal cramps, back ache, bloating, headache, uneven digestion, and mood swings.  It also forms the basis for deeper and more detailed therapeutic work that is required to address conditions of menstrual dysfunction such as PCOS, endometriosis, and fibroids.

– Women during menstruation are advised not to practice abdominal actions, twists, strong back arches, jumping, or any other tiring asanas
– these recordings have been divided into 2 parts only for the sake of convenience – to keep the recordings to a manageable length, for practitioners who might not be used to a long practice.  However, once familiar with the sequence, the asanas in part I and in part II should be done in continuation (as in the follow-along recording)
