It's YouTube Friday, and a new free exercise video is here. Today we tackle one of the most asked question by far: "Can I still exercise while I have my period?". The answer really is, it is completely up to you! If you feel like you want to move your body to connect to it, then go ahead and do that. If you feel tired and just want to curl up in bed with a cup of tea and a good book, then do that. Today, I will share some restorative yoga poses with you that are comforting, calming, and relaxing when you are on your cycle. They help you to ease PMS symptoms such as cramping, bloating, and lower back pain, and they make you feel connected to your body, even when you may just feel "yucky" inside. The video is now live on YouTube.
Take all the time to rest. Your body is working so hard during the first 3 days of your cycle, so it is ok to not want to run a marathon :-). Longterm this will help you to feel more energetic, and have less PMS symptoms.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
