Because you demanded it... a special LADIES ONLY video! Yoga for Cramps and PMS. This is a gentle and restorative sequence for a woman to practice before or during her cycle.

This sequence invites the ladies to slow it down and support the body and its natural rhythm. It provides relief for PMS, cramps and lower back aches. It calms the nervous system and chills the energetic body leaving you feeling cool and clear. Practice to support the body and it' wisdom - leaving frustration and fussiness behind.

This gentle yoga sequence will offer anyone an opportunity to connect with their breath, relieve tension in the neck, wake up the body and find balance from within. This is a great practice for those suffering from acid reflux as it does not have any inversions or ab stimulators. It is also great for those who are in healing, wanting to relieve PMS, or just tired from a long day. A quick and valuable sequence suitable for all! In my experience with GERD or acid reflux in particular - I find that focusing on my breath has been most helpful. Also, do not let the stomach go over the esophagus during this time and go easy on any core stimulators.

Learn the Foundations of Salabhasana or Locust pose! This yoga pose is a back bend with the strong support of your foundation and the earth.

Locust Pose is a great full body strengthener and wonderful to relieve fatigue and giving some love to the spine. Extend through the crown of your head and enjoy the balance of strength and grace in Salabhasana.
