Yoga to Relieve Period Symptoms

Yoga to Relieve Period Symptoms

Sorry fellas, this one is for the ladies. But if you experience low back pain, or just want an overall grounding practice, stick around, you will still benefit from this yoga practice.

Oftentimes, when it’s that time of the month, women may experience cramps, low back pain, overall stiffness and soreness. We may become emotional. Not to mention the chocolate cravings (I can’t be the only one!)

With our period can come discomfort. You may want to stay in bed or sweat pants all day. I even have friends who call out of work sick!

I feel your pain. That’s why I created this “yoga for your flow” Vinyasa yoga sequence.

How you will feel after the class:

  • Lower back pain relieved
  • Stress reduced
  • Relaxed
  • Blood pressure lowered
  • Grounded
  • At peace


Without further adieu, here is a 20 minute yoga flow to relieve period symptoms:

Namaste and enjoy beautiful yogis! Please leave any suggestions for other videos you’d like me to film in the future below in the comments.

In love & light,
Heather

    Hi, love your articles. Hope you can help me with some info, is yoga safe for pregnant women? I’m pregnant and i’m experiencing some back pain and a friend told me that yoga is great for back pain.

      Hi Nora. Yoga can be helpful to relieve back pain while you’re pregnant, but you should be careful! Slow down if you get too hot or notice your breath is labored. Also, stay away from twists and you’ll be more comfortable on your back than on your belly. I would not start an inversion practice unless you’re already strong in one. Most importantly, listen to your body and draw back in your practice if you notice you’re in any pain or discomfort.
