Personal Testimonial

Personally, I have grown up having horrible period pains. When I was in school, every month the drama would unfold, with me breaking into a sweat as the cramps took over. I would feel pukish and have excruciating pain. No medicine helped my cause. I would battle the pressure and pain until I forced myself into sleeping. The first day was always dreadful. Years later, the pain did get better and medicine did work, but my period still wasn’t stress-free.

Doctors suggested I practice yoga. I did. And now, not only has the pain become bearable, but also the whole ordeal has become tolerable. There is pain, but I don’t need medicine to keep it in check. The hormones are also balanced out. PMS is not extreme. I have stopped dreading this monthly process that is such a big part of me being a woman. Yoga has made me accept it. It has allowed me to be in sync with the natural processes of my body. Try it to believe it!

Now that you know how to get regular periods by yoga, what are you waiting for?

Disclaimer: While yoga is perfectly safe to practice even on your period, sometimes instructors advice you against it. Do listen to your instructor. You must be a regular to be able to practice yoga even while menstruating. Also, if your periods are extremely painful and irregular, you must consult a doctor. Yoga will work well alongside the treatment, but ask your doctor before you practice it.

Girls! Don’t dread your period. It is such an essential part of being the woman you are. Embrace it! Yoga will help you do so. Even if you don’t have any problems, yoga will ensure you don’t have any in future too.
