Most of us live such fast-paced lives that we begin to compromise on our health. Not only does this lackadaisical attitude cause weight gain, but it also leads to a range of menstrual health issues, such as infertility, managing PCOS, endometriosis, hormonal imbalance, and more. But as always, yoga can come to your rescue, and there’s a specific pose that can help. Yes, we are speaking about chandra namaskar or moon salutations.
This practice includes a range of poses, which offer various benefits. Yogini Juhi Kapoor has also shared this, in her recent Instagram video!
Here are the poses you must make note of:
This pose boosts blood circulation, strengthens calf muscles, and improves posture.
Here’s how to do it:Stand with your feet pressing firmly into the ground, hip-width distance apart with the toes pointing in slightly.
Drop the tailbone, stretch your spine and roll the shoulders away from the ears.
Place the palms together at the heart centre.
It strengthens your side core muscles and improves breathing capacity.
Here’s how to do it:
Track your menstrual cycle using the HealthShots Period Tracker.
You can also do it in a flow without holding the postures, in order to boost the heart rate
Most beneficial when done in the evening, facing a rising moon(can be done otherwise too)
Do NOT do it in case of cervical trouble. Pregnant women can do this pose, only under the guidance of their prenatal yoga teacher (with certain modifications as suggested by the teacher). Avoid in case of arthritis
