|Yoga for Women with PMS|
Here are some good asanas to utilize during this time of the month:
(Article continued below.)
- Spinal Twists, either sitting or lying down:
This helps loosen up your stiff back.
- Cobra Pose (Bhujangasana): Another good one for
your back. It also tones your nervous system.
- Camel Pose (Ustrasana): Not only is good
for your back, it massages your abdominal organs.
- Modified Wide Angle Pose: Lie on your back with your sitz bones against a wall and your legs
spread in a "V" - this will relieve bloating and bring healing energy to your whole pelvic area.
Besides, it's incredibly relaxing.
- Child's Pose (Mudhasana):
The full pose, with your arms at your side, palms up. Another great way to relax body and mind.
If you feel like you're up to it, you also might want to fit in some of those inverted poses (Plough,
Shoulderstand, Headstand) since it's best to avoid them once menstruation begins. There are many more
beneficial poses, of course - Yoga Site lists some asanas according to your symptom
(craving, depression, etc.). How ever you decide to do it, end your session with an extra long Shavasana -
you owe it to yourself. Now, if you still want it, have that chocolate bar!
