yoga poses for PMS relief

 PMS is one of the most difficult phase that every girl has to bear every month. PMS comes with lots of pain, anxiety, cramps, acnes and discomfort. I remember when my mom told me about periods she only mentioned that there are 3-4 days on which you'll bleed and have cramps. I was told the same by everyone around me. No one told me about PMS, the pain and sufferings along with it. I'm sure you also experienced it yourself with time.

Every problem has a solution. I believe there is no better solution than doing yoga for any health disorder or a disease. Yoga and exercises at home have helped me to reduce period pain and ofcourse the cruel premenstrual symptoms too.

PMS is not much prevalent in younger teens. The symptoms start showing up in older teens and early 20s of a girl. If not looked upon the hormonal changes occuring every month the symptoms worsens with age and the women in their 40s experiences the worst of the worsts PMS.

YOGA undoubtedly has very effective results over time. Once you start practicing yoga, you'll eventually feel that you are becoming internally fit. Doing yoga for atleast 40 minutes daily in the morning or evening, whenever it suits you the best, will give you miraculous results. Here are several yoga poses to try if you are experiencing cramps and pain in your body before menstruating.

1. Balasana

Balasana, CHILD'S POSE or also known as CHILD'S RESTING POSE is a very calming pose that puts you into deep relaxation. This pose helps to relieve anxiety, stress, thigh and pelvic pain. This pose is the best for digestion and elimination. The result of balasana are so positive only because of the opening of hips and stretching of back which helps to relieve the tension inside our body. Breathing in and out while doing this pose for atleast 20 minutes helps in increased oxygen supply that is required to cleanse your body.

2. Bidalasana

Also known as CAT POSE , is very effective asana of yoga for your spine. It helps in promoting flexibility of your spinal cord and helps in relieving tension from neck and shoulders. Cat pose accompanied by deep breathing helps to relax your brain and spinal cord which results in releasing of happy hormones and you can get a sigh of relief from "mood swings", a major problem of PMS. This pose is also beneficial for thyroid patients.

3. Setu Bandasna

It is also known as BRIDGE POSE, is a miracle for your nervous system. This pose relaxes your brain so well and gives you a fresh mood everytime you do it. This pose helps in treating PMS headaches, constipation, gas pain, bloating, insomnia and irritation. Any leg pain or back pain is also minimized by performing this pose for 20 minutes. 

4. Pavanamuktasana

It is also known as WIND RELIEVING POSE, which is very helpful for treating cramps and strengthening of uterus muscles. This pose as the name says helps in releasing of entrapped gas from the stomach and intestine. Gas and Bloating are the two common premenstrual symptoms and this pose is very effective in treating both of them at the same time. 

5. Shavasana

To end up a yoga session, Shavasana is performed. In this you just have to lay down and start deep breathing. This helps your body to relax after doing stretching poses and allow an increased flow of oxygen to circulate throughout your body which undoubtedly cleanses up all the toxins and inflammation inside your body.

BONUS TIP: After performing all the yoga poses, have a Peppermint or Spearmint tea as a refreshment. You can buy this tea from amazon . This tea helps in reducing your symptoms more quickly. 

  Happy PMSing girls!
