Yoga Sequence For Period Cramps
This Simple, Ob-Gyn-Approved Yoga Sequence Feels Like Heaven For Your Painful Cramps
Do Knee-to-Chest with one leg at a time, as shown, or by pulling both up your chest. You'll get the same soothing effects as with Forward Fold.
- Lie on your back, and gently bend your left knee into your chest. Clasp your hands in front of your shin, and gently pull down to increase the stretch. Release any tension in your shoulders and neck.
- Keep your right leg relaxed in a comfortable position. To release your lower back even more, draw it up to your chest and wrap both arms around your knee to make a little ball with your body.
- Hold for five breaths, then repeat with the right knee bent.
