As many have already stated, yoga is a great way to deal with not only menstruation issues but also the IBS flare ups that can often go with them. Menstruation is a time of purification on psychological as well as physical levels. This is a time when women tend to feel more sensitive and vulnerable, so it is a good time to attune to the body's needs and and adjust any yoga postures that you do accordingly.

When we get our periods there is a lot of heat in the body. Cooling postures such as forward bends and pranayama (breathing) can be done to counteract this. However you may wish to avoid overexertion and allow yourself to be slow and gentle. ( I personally like a vigorous practice during this time but that's what works for me) In yoga, it is important to honor your own individual body and experience.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Hope you are feeling better soon.

Peace,

K
