    I have heard not to do certain poses during the first three days. My menstruation only lasts three days.

    […] Last time I said that the sequence is accessible to all, including those carrying injuries, pregnant or during menstruation. If you have an injury please let me know before the class so that your needs can be met. Matthew Sweeney (creator of the sequence) writes about practice during pregnancy and during menstruation in the sequence book, I’ve put an extract below for information. Another interesting article on the subject can be found here. […]

    Thank you, Ramdesh –
    this has been the best (and most inspiring!) explanation of this topic I ever had so far. And I have been asking more than one yoga and non-yoga specialists :)

    Sat Nam! I enjoy your blogs so much Ramdesh, and I especially loved this one. I have never consciously looked at the so called hormonal changes during our cycles as corresponding with our energy fields, and it’s so obvious! And wonderful! It makes me think differently now, as well, as my body is beginning to go through a lot of mid life hormonal changes, and it allows me to see them in a more spiritual and yogic sort of way, instead of just in mundane, dense physical terms. I would love to read more on women’s energy and yoga and life changes. Especially for those of us who are seeing changes as we start to age, and to be able to see it in such a wonderful empowering way! Thanks again for the amazing perspective shift! Wahe Guru!

    Sat nam! Great article, thank you so much.
    Do have info like this about the middle of the cycle? Around day 14, I think, is an intense time for our bodies.
    Hope to read you soon!
