Yoga asana practice has a special place throughout the reproductive cycle of a woman – from the onset of puberty, through pregnancy, post-partum, and menopause. A practice that is in sync with the hormonal cycle, adds a rich dimension to the practice of asanas, and over a period of time, can alleviate many of the discomforts associated with the monthly periods.
This goes way beyond a ‘menstrual sequence’, and extends to practice during the whole month. Indeed, there are healthy practices for the pre and post-menstrual days, as well as adaptations for conditions like irregular menses, scanty or heavy flow, PCOD/ PCOS, endometriosis and fibroids.
