Yoga For Menstruation – Weekly Advanced Class 57

Focus: This class focusses on restorative poses that help to relax the abdominal region, and soothe the nervous system. This type of sequence is commonly practiced by women in the Iyengar method during menstruation. During this time inversions are avoided; as are poses that compress or harden the abdomen; and practice sequences are given an energy preserving emphasis. This class shows one way that such a sequence can evolve. Although often used in relation to womens health, this style of class will also be enjoyable and beneficial for men as well. This calming, rejuvenating class will also help to promote relaxation and combat stress.

    I read in Light on Yoga that inversions should be avoided, wouldn’t setu bandha sarvangasana count as one? Would appreciate your insight ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks!

      Hi Swati, setu bandha sarvangasana is recommended during menstruation as it opens the chest and settles the nerves.
