3 Yoga Poses for Menstrual Cycle Relief

The following yoga poses are intended for a restorative home practice and can help alleviate menstrual cycle relief.

Reclined Hero (Supta Virasana)

Note: This pose stretches the reproductive organs, relaxes the lower pelvic region, and helps to reduce menstrual cramping. If you want more of a stretch, decrease the height of the support behind you. If it’s too low and a strain on your back, build up the height with more blankets until it’s comfortable. Another reclined pose that helps to relieve menstrual cramping is Reclined Bound Angle Pose.

Note: It’s worth taking the time to fold the blankets and enjoy the stretch.

Head to Knee Pose (Janusirsasana) 

This pose relaxes the reproductive organs and relieves menstrual cramps.

Full forward Bend (Paschimottanasana)

Menstruation is a normal physiological process. It is not a disease and practicing yoga or other physical activities are even recommended during periods.

Regular yoga classes may help your body to go through the periods more comfortably; it may also promote health and normalization of periods.
