Am I meant to avoid inversions if I am menstruating?
I would be mindful during a menstruation cycle. If your energy is low or your period is heavy then I would consider missing inversions but if your feeling energised there is no reason why you can’t hold inversions for a short time.
In some yoga systems inversions are considered to improve and alleviate menstrual problems as part of yoga therapy.
In yoga, philosophically, apana is a downward flowing energy, which is most active in the pelvis and lower abdomen. Menstruation is considered to be apana. Although there is no consensus on whether to avoid inversions, some say inversions will disturb this natural energetic flow.
