Benefits of doing yoga during your period
Yoga is a practice of breathing and holding different positions, called asanas. Several of the asanas are inversion positions, which require the head to be below the level of the heart. That’s why doing yoga during your period is sometimes considered controversial, and many believe that it’s better to avoid it completely during this time. Others feel that some positions should be limited.
Some people choose to ignore their period and go on with their daily activities. Others prefer to take it easy and wait until their symptoms have passed. Regardless of how you feel about your period, yoga may help with the symptoms that you are experiencing.
