The Practice of Women During the Whole Month

Today on International Women’s Day we’re sharing a guide to women’s yoga practice from our archives, written by Dr Geeta S. Iyengar.

During a visit to Poland in 2002 Geetaji gave a lecture on the subject and kindly gave permission for us to publish it to coincide with her visit to London in 2009. With her usual generosity and care she edited and added to the lecture for this purpose. 

She succinctly and clearly explains how women should adjust their practice to the hormonal changes of the menstrual cycle.  All teachers and practitioners of yoga will find this lecture an invaluable source of knowledge and wisdom which will enhance their practice and understanding of the wonderful and vast subject of yoga.
