Menstrual cramps are the worst part of menstruation, they make us weak, and all we feel like doing is sleeping as much as we can. Dysmenorrhea, the pain associated with the menstrual cycle is due to increased levels of prostaglandins, which trigger contractions of the uterine and intestinal walls. We usually treat dysmenorrhea with some medication or rest. But medications, in the long run, is not good for our body. And hence, we should try replacing medication with yoga. 

Yoga is not only good for the mind and soul, but it also increases the blood count in our body. Doing yoga during periods can help with period pain, thereby, allowing us to do our regular activities freely. These are the yoga poses that work well with the period cramps.

This pose allows you to use breathing to relax your pelvis and control those cramps. The pose stretches the hips, calms the brain, and relieves back pain. Kneel on the floor and touch your big toes with you sit on your heels. Separate your knees and fold your body forward and nest it in between your knees. Breathe in and out while stretching your arms forward while keeping your back touching your heels. 

Malasana (Body squats):

 

 

Squats are great for toning your body, but they also improve the pumping of body fluids, and hence your tissues, organs, and glands get oxygen faster, and the toxins get eliminated easier. Lower your body in a sitting position and push your hips back, bend your knees while you keep your chest up. Go down until your knees are at a 90-degree angle, pause for a few seconds and then go back up.

 

Setu Bandha Sarvangasana (Bridge pose):

 

This pose is for your core muscles, as well as your back. It helps with restoring your abs and calming your cramps. Lie on the floor with your knees bent and bring your heels close to your hips with hands by your side. Lift your hips off the floor while keeping your back straight. Pause for a few seconds at the top before lowering down.

Lastly we have the camel pose. This pose boosts your energy levels and helps you breathe better.
