  • Bound Angle Pose Blocks (Baddha Konasana Blocks)
    A. Begin by sitting in Bound Angle Pose with support for the knees with blocks. Keeping the back straight, be seated here for about 12 deep slow breaths.

    B. After sitting in this pose for 12 breaths, start flapping the thighs and knees while still holding the feet in your palms.

    C. Remove the blocks and flap the knees for about 20 rounds with continuous conscious breathing. Making sure the entire lower body from the hips are loose.

    D. Baddha Konasana along with the flapping of the thighs improves the blood circulation and loosens up the inner thigh muscles.
  • Bound Angle Forward Bend (Baddha Konasana Uttanasana)
    A. Release from the flapping of the thighs and knees and go froward with the upper torso reaching for the floor with arms stretched out in front, as you exhale.

    B. Remain in this forward bend pose for about 10 breaths and watch for the stretch at the lower back and the inner thighs.

    C. With Baddha Konasana Uttanasana, the lower back gets massaged helping with the proper functioning of the internal organs and mainly with the pelvic muscles.
  • Seated Forward Bend Pose (Paschimottanasana)
    A. Release from Baddha Konasana Uttanasana and stretch the legs out in front of you seated in Dandasana, taking a few breaths.

    C. With complete exhalation, stretch forward and interlock the fingers behind the feet and reach for the knees with your forehead.

    D. Remain here for about 10 long breaths, as compressing the chest and the abdomen in the forward bend may cause the breath to be small and short.

    E. With every exhalation move forward with the entire back stretching from the lower back.

    F. Paschimottanasana, helps to reduce the tightness around the hamstrings and the calves, which could be one of the symptoms of Menopause.

    E. Remain in this pose for about 8 breaths and ensure the back is straight and take slow deep breaths.

  • Cat Cow Pose (Bitilasana Marjaryasana)
    A. Come on your knees and place the palms on the floor, ensuring the distance between the palms and the knees are same and aligned.

    B. The practice of Bitilasana Marjaryasana or the Cat Cow Pose, helps to remove stiffness around the entire back and plays a great role of improving digestion. It also massages the reproductive organs which helps to ease the symptoms of pain and cramps during Menopause.

    C. As you inhale raise the neck up bringing the chest out and taking the spine inwards and throwing the tail bone out completely.

    D. And as you exhale, pull the shoulder blades apart and throw the face in bringing the chin down and in. Using the strength of the shoulders and the wrists, the spine moves inwards and outwards with the movement of the breath.

    E. Practice this pose with 12 rounds of inhalation and exhalation. Watch for the stretch at the lower abdomen and ensure the tummy is pulled in deep for better massage of the internal organs.
