Let’s explore how a yoga practice affects your perception and what that means for your cycle. Turns out there is more in which you can benefit from doing yoga than the increased circulation and blood flow to have a better cycle. Female martial artists have a major benefit compared to male counterparts – all because they have a period! The martial arts trainers have a different training practice and technique using Ayurveda. A released study goes against the old thought of the Uterus being sterile. There are bacteria that is in endometrial fluid which may actually increase success rates of IVF or even conception in general!

 

Feed your period with coconut milk! Tonify the Yang and warm the Uterus to decrease cramps and have a more regular cycle.
