15 Minute Yoga Poses to Relieve Your Period Pain
Jan 12, 2015    11 Comments

Most women know that when Aunt Flo comes to visit, it isn't always a pleasant stay. In fact, pain is often involved.

For those women who experience menstrual cramps, we have a special post for you from yoga teacher Allanah from YogaYin. Allanah brings us her favorite poses from the Sivananda yoga tradition to help ease menstruation discomfort. Do them on your yoga mat or on your bed.

And if you follow her advice, you may even feel so relaxed that you lapse into a nice nap after you finish (wouldn't that be nice!).

Been suffering the whole afternoon due to menstrual cramps. So I looked to the Internet for some remedy and found your video and I must say those poses are really, really effective. The pain was gone instantly! Thank you so much!

It's been a horrifically stressful week and as a result I've had my first bout of crippling cramping since changing to a cup. Because the cramps went away with the "conventional" products, I didn't have any of the appropriate little blue pills to stop the raging agony when it hit.

This video saved my sanity today. Pain ebbed to a dull throb after doing the exercises, and the same person made some brilliant vids for anxiety which unglued my shoulders from my ears as well.

I can't thank Lunette and the maker of that you tube channel enough. Thank you thank you thank you.

I had period pain for more than 15 years, very bad pain, can't sleep, can't sit, like in hell.

About two years ago, I found comfortable periods pad from www.periodpain.net, I only used two times, till now, never have period pain any more.

I suggest all my female friends use it, all said it is the best, it is natural herbal, no side effect, and it can get rid of the pain forever! work like magic!

Hope it can help more people, so I leave a message here, if you have the same problem, try it! you will see! the website promise 100% money back guarantee if not work.

I woke in the early hours nauseous from period pain, whole body sweating - the most pain I've had in a long time. In desperation I Googled 'yoga for period pain' - briefly looked at a few and then came across this. Instantly appealed because you were on your bed (I couldn't contemplate being anywhere other than my bed) - and your appearance made me feel very relaxed. I did the poses, felt the pain easing as I moved through them, and when i was done I had a really nice nap. Woke up pain free and had a rally productive day of work. Im 'almost' looking forward to trying them again next month! Thank you!!!
