I have my period / menstrual cycle on the week that I am coming to the retreat how does that effect my yoga practice ?
At the beginning of your week (on the Sunday) speak to the teacher and let them know that you have your period and ask the teacher to give you alternative postures to any inverted postures that may be part of the daily class.
By inverted postures IY means postures whereby your pelvis is above your head - as an example, headstands, handstands, and all of the plough postures. Some experts believe that it is not good to go upside down on or at the beginning of your period when the flow is usually at its most. Some teachers say do not do any inverted postures for the whole period. Opinions differ but to be on the save side IY say - find alternative postures throughout your period.
