Hello,

My girlfriend keeps complaining about scanty periods and clots during her menstrual cycle. So she is planning to join a yoga class next week as her doctor advised. Is it okay to perform yoga during her menstrual period? What precautions have to be taken during the menstrual period?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern.

The only precaution to be taken is not to exert too much pressure.

In my suggestion, she must start with simple, easily practicable yoga asanas (exercises) and continue.

Do not try difficult asanas or complicated asanas.

Thank you.
