10 best yoga poses for women
Yoga is ideal for women, because, like no other health systems, it affects not only the physical health of a woman, but also her emotional state. It is known that emotions directly affect the production of female hormones, the work of the reproductive system and the general state of the health.
After the beginning of practice, many women first with surprise, and then enthusiastically notice positive changes in health. After the course of yoga therapy, it is possible to normalize the cycle, to reduce the intensity of menstrual pains, to smooth out the manifestations of PMS and even to refuse to regularly take hormonal pills.
Yoga helps to maintain reproductive health. If you are not physically active, the pelvic region will be in a deficit of stimulation, and this will have a negative effect on the condition of the internal organs. Try these ten best yoga poses for women:
