Physiological yoga | this may be the most comprehensive explanation you’ve ever seen!

The physiological period is the most vulnerable day for women in a month.

Due to the loss of menstrual blood and physical weakness, if you don’t pay attention to conditioning, it is easy to cause health problems.

Therefore, the conditioning of female friends during menstrual period is particularly important.

Some people say that yoga during menstruation can recuperate the body, but many girls have doubts about it.

Therefore, some people ask whether yoga can be done during menstruation? What taboos do women have during menstruation? First of all, can you do yoga during menstruation? Whether you can practice yoga during menstruation can not be generalized, which should be determined according to everyone’s physique.

The specific situation is as follows: 1.

Women with weak menstruation and dysmenorrhea should not practice yoga or do restorative yoga during menstruation.

Some women are weak and in poor physical condition during menstruation, resulting in low back pain, dysmenorrhea and other phenomena.

Especially in the first two days of their physiological period, they will be particularly uncomfortable.

At this time, the best way is to rest or do some restorative yoga postures, such as supine angle pose.

After the most uncomfortable two days, you can do some soothing yoga exercises, but the intensity should not be too strong, which can help your body recover.

In addition, women with menstrual troubles should pay attention to strengthening the practice of posture and breathing in the non physiological period, which can help improve your physical state to avoid dysmenorrhea and other problems.


What are the taboos of practicing yoga during menstruation.

There are three types of postures that are considered taboo for women during menstruation: inverted three-dimensional postures, backward bending postures, and strong abdominal distortion and contraction postures.

▼ avoid inverted posture throughout menstruation.

Handstand can interfere with the downward rhythm of menstruation throughout the cycle, resulting in interruption of flow, and may lead to the retention of unhealthy substances in the uterus, which may in turn form cysts or other health problems.

Such as shoulder handstand salambasarvangasana, head handstand salambasirsasana, pear halasana, plow ▼ back bending posture can stimulate the adrenal gland, which will over stimulate the menstrual system when the body has additional activities and heat.

This can lead to an increase in menstrual flow, or restart with a heavier force after a sudden stop.

Like a hose flowing slowly, folding it will produce two effects: the front end of the folding will accelerate the outflow; The rear end will slow down the flow or even block, and then spray out immediately after accumulating a certain pressure.

For example, bow dhanurasana, camel ustrasana, wheeled urdhva dhanurasana, wheeled ▼ abdominal torsion and strong abdominal contraction are also inappropriate during menstruation.

Additional internal pressure on organs and potential irritation to sensitive cervical areas should be avoided.

For example, jatharaparivartanasana with abdominal torsion, urdhvaprasaritapadasana with supine leg lifting, and nacasana with boat.

In addition, menstrual Yoga should also avoid postures that are easy to cause tension and fatigue, standing or balancing postures that are maintained for too long, and postures that support the balance of the whole body with arms.

Especially in the first few days with large flow, it is suggested that women should not practice yoga excessively during menstruation, but let the physical and mental system rest and pay attention to any symptoms during menstruation.

Many times, we ignore situations such as physical fatigue, psychological irritability or abnormal menstrual flow.

Only by maintaining physical and mental calm can we notice these signals and deal with them.

Some women are in good physical condition, and the body does not respond much during the physiological period.

Generally speaking, they can adapt to normal yoga practice.

However, even so, we should try our best to avoid handstand exercises, abdominal compression and contraction exercises, deep backward bending exercises, etc., so as not to cause menstrual blood backflow and reflux, which will retain some menstrual blood that should have been discharged from the body and affect menstrual health.
