This video will provide women with a clear explanation of the two postures most beneficial during menstruation. Particularly if there is pain from cramps and general discomfort, relaxing into these asana will provide great relief and prepare the yogini for a more dynamic practice after her menses. The moon days are a time when apana vayu, the eliminatory “wind” needs to be supported, allowing for an easy shedding of that which the body no longer requires. As a general restorative practice, especially where pitta-regulation, i.e. cooling, soothing and balancing is needed, these poses are also very effective.
