A woman’s health is directly reflected in her menstrual cycle. An irregular cycle or missing cycles may result from high levels of stress (prolonged periods of stress in menstruating women can also lead to increased rates of bone loss), overdoing, overeating, not eating enough, eating poorly, not getting enough rest, even how you feel about your body, and so on.
The transition through the different stages in a woman, from puberty to pregnancy and menopause has a physiological, psychological and spiritual impact on women. In ancient times, these stages were celebrated by the tribe or community where support and wisdom was passed from the older to the younger women.
Nowadays, when teens reach menstruation, they feel embarrassed about it. And many claim to know nothing or very little about it.
When a woman reaches her menstruation, it is said that she has approximately 360 cycles until she reaches menopause, normally more than enough to conceive.
Yoga and meditation can certainly help you to reach balance and physical and mental well being.
There are certain Yoga poses that relieve menstrual cramps. How does this happen? We perceive the world through our senses: eyes, ears, taste, touch, and nose. Through physical movements we can tune these senses, balance our hormone levels, and experience peace of mind. The body is part of us and by denying the body and the influence that it has on us, we deny ourselves. On the contrary, by moving our body through conscious movements, while being in the present, we can refine our senses, balance them, and experience our natural state of being.
Certain movements create pressure in other areas of the body. For example, they can target a specific organ and make it secrete toxins or release tension.
