Women experience the beginning of the menstrual cycle in a range of ways. For some, the drop in estrogen and progesterone results in more energy. On the other hand, some have mild symptoms that make her feel a little off. And some women can have a very uncomfortable time.

Regardless of where you fall in that range, menstruation warrants extra self-care.  

It's no secret that yoga is good for relieving mental and physical stress at any time of the month. But it can help even more during menstruation. The Menstrual Sequence developed by B. K. S. Iyengar regulates hormones, soothes the nervous system, and creates downward and opening actions in the body to alleviate cramping, and facilitate the shedding of the uterine lining. When you're menstruating, your body is at work, and the Menstrual Sequence can give it a little extra support. 

These restorative poses can help you relax and focus inward. In addition, your body will truly appreciate the extra nurturing as it works through this remarkable time.
