Is Yoga Safe During Menstruation?

Menstruation is common to all women, except aged. The experience of every woman is different about their menstruation circle and duration. But they all agree that this time is not enjoyable any more. Some suffers from intolerable pain, some gets annoyed and even most of women don’t want to get out during this time. Many societies believe that menstruation time is the resting time and they encourage the women to take rest.

There are many opinions about ‘Yoga during menstruation’. Some say to practice it and some say to ignore. As this time is not same to all women, then we can say that if you have extreme menstruation then stop yoga during this time. It may cause negative emotions. If you don’t face any problem during this time then you can practice some asanas.

It is not so much important that you have to practice yoga in your difficult time. You can easily stop for three or four days.
