Yoga Question

Yoga-for-Menstrual-CrampsToday’s question comes from Natasha from Facebook:

Melissa, I hope you can help me. I have been having horrible cramps during menstruation, and I was hoping you could recommend some poses to help relieve pain. Please and thank you so much for the beauty you have brought to my life through yoga.

Hi Natasha

One of the poses that I would most recommend for menstrual cramps is wide-legged child’s pose. If you have a bolster that you can use, even better. 🙂

We have two videos on our membership site for women’s cycle called Waxing to the Full Moon for ovulation and then Waning to the Dark Moon for when you are menstruating. They are fantastic and outline all the poses to help ease menstruation. For more info click here
