Yoga For Period Relief | How To Reduce Menstrual Pain | Glamrs Period Hacks


Bloating, cramping, headaches during that time of the month sounds familiar ladies? Indulging in cravings like caffeine, alcohol and chocolates may feel satisfying at that moment but it’s not! Hi guys, I’m riya and I’m a yoga practitioner. Today I’m going to show you some asanas to relieve you of this painful period cramping. Let’s start with supta buddha konasana or the reclined bound angle pose. Lie down on your back and use a pillow to support your lower back. You can even practise this on your bed. Bend your legs and spread open the knees, with the feet touching each other. Place your hands on your navel, close your eyes, and stay here for around a minute, continue breathing through the nose. Slowly relax and release the legs. This variation of the butterfly pose is really beneficial for lower back pain and cramps. It works on the uterus and gives it some relief from the pain. Moving on let’s do upavishta konasana or the seated angle pose. Sit up on your sit bones, and spread your legs open. Straighten the back and slowly start walking your hands in front of you on the floor lowering the upper body. If possible try to hold the toes with your hands, otherwise stay upto whatever point you’re comfortable. Hold here for 5-7 breaths and relax. This asana stretches the reproductive region and helps release the pain through the hip opening. Let’s do the happy baby pose or bala kridasana Lie down on your back, and lift the legs off the floor. Bend the knees towards the armpit, with the shin perpendicular to the floor. Grab the inner arches of your foot from the inside with your hands. Stay here for 8-9 breaths and slowly release. This asana is amazing to open up the hips and pelvic floor, gives a good activation to the abdominal organs and relaxes muscle contractions. Next one is the matsyasana or the fish pose. Cross your legs and lie down on your back. Placing the knees on the floor, lift the head and place the crown of the head on the floor. Place your hands on your thighs and stay here for 5-7 breaths. Slowly release your head, come up and then release the legs. This pose eases out lower back pain and cramps and helps remove the stiffness from the hips. The last pose is anantasana or the sleeping vishnus pose. Lie down on the left side of the body, and place your left hand above your ears. Lift the right leg up, and grab the toes or ankle. Stretch the leg up and straighten the knee. Stay here for 5-7 breaths and repeat on the other side. Anantasana helps open up the pelvic floor and hips and gives a great stretch to this region. It helps balance menstrual disorders if done over a period of time as well. These asanas have restorative and therapeutic qualities to ease off the pain. So keep it slow paced and relaxed. Until next time stay tuned and stay Glamrs.

  11. Since the birth of my daughter coupled with getting older and being stressed, I noticed my PMS symptoms were truly at an all time high. I suffered from cravings, anxiety and general
    irritability. This month I began taking “PMS be gone tea”, ten days before I was due for my period and I noticed a dramatic decrease in my PMS symptoms. I felt I was in greater control of my cravings, I felt less run down, and generally my overall mood was improved. My period came on time and my cramps were decreased and my energy level was great. I will say that I’m going to
    continue to take this as a supplement!
