What yoga poses help with period cramps?

Yoga can offer relief from menstrual cramps through specific poses that help relax the muscles and ease tension. Here are a few effective ones:

  • Child's Pose (Balasana): Relaxes the lower back and abdomen.
  • Cat-Cow Stretch (Marjaryasana-Bitilasana): Enhances spine flexibility and relieves tension in the torso.
  • Forward Bend (Paschimottanasana): Calms the mind and stretches the spine and hamstrings.
  • Knees-to-Chest Pose (Apanasana): Eases abdominal cramping and soothes the back.
  • Reclining Bound Angle Pose (Supta Baddha Konasana): Opens the hips and relieves lower abdominal discomfort.

These poses are designed to reduce stress and promote relaxation, which can be particularly beneficial during your period. Remember to listen to your body and move gently, avoiding any poses that feel uncomfortable.
