OK! (Australia) - - Health -

Con­trary to pop­u­lar be­lief, you can do yoga when you have your pe­riod. And while your yoga in­struc­tor may ad­vise you to avoid some moves – in­clud­ing head­stands – other poses may ac­tu­ally help to re­duce symp­toms. For an easy po­si­tion that re­lieves stress and will aid you in in­creas­ing en­ergy lev­els, try re­lax­ing in the child’s pose. Kneel with your legs slightly apart and crawl your hands for­ward so that your arms are stretched out long in front of you and your fore­head rests on the ground. Hold the pose for 10 or more deep breaths and then re­lease.

Fed up with tam­pons and pads? The Diva Cup is a re­us­able al­ter­na­tive that will save you money and the en­vi­ron­ment.
